Chinese networking and telecommunications company Huawei is set to roll out a new smartphone called Huawei P9.
The handheld device will be the follow up to the P8, which garnered positive reviews from the tech community. It has been praised on its innovative design and quality in terms of the choice of materials used. With this, the hopes for the P9 are relatively high.
Tech Times reported that the phone is set to come out March next year. The P9 will also have similar features as that of the P8. Its screen will be 5.2 inches. However, Huawei is reportedly trying to improve the resolution of the upcoming phone as it is one of the major waterloos of its predecessor.
Specs-wise, it is rumored to be operated by a Kirin 950 octa-core paired with 4GB of RAM a definite upgrade from P8’s RAM of just 3GB. The Kirin 950 is also the latest among the company’s propriety chipset, so users can be rest assured that the phone will offer only the best in terms of technology. Furthermore, it will run under the latest Android OS, 6.0 Marshmallow.
Meanwhile, in a separate report by GSM Arena, a new handphone from Huawei has just been certified by the Chinese certification and regulatory authority TENAA. The report also disclosed some of the key specs of the phone which is currently called the Honor KIW-AL20. Measured at 5.5 inches (1920 x 1080 pixel resolution), it is powered by a 1.5GHZ octa-core CPU coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB expandable memory. Based on the leaks, the device looks like it is sporting a metal build and is also said to be featuring a fingerprint sensor.
Huawei still has not released an official statement about the P8 as well as the newly certified device. There is a chance that they might be the same device.
