Huawei P9 Leaked Metal Frame Suggests USB Type-C Port
It was speculated that Huawei would be unveiling its new flagship P9 at the MWC last week but that didn’t happen. Perhaps Huawei wasn’t ready with its device yet or is saving it for a solo event later on. Last weel, some rumours emerged that the P9 would sport a metal frame and a dual camera setup. Now, we have some leaked images of said metal frame that reveal a few more details.
The alleged P9 metal frame confirms that the device will sport a dual camera setup at the back and also reveals a USB Type-C port as well. You can also notice a cutout for a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Meanwhile, some leaked renders from a few days ago showed us that the handset features a 2.5D curved screen on the front. The bezels look pretty thin on the front while the power button and volume controls fall to the right side. The renders also show possible color options for the P9 in gold, white, pink and gray.
On the specs front, the P9 is likely to come with a Kirin 950 SoC, 4GB of RAM and a 5.2-inch display, none of which have been confirmed yet, of course. Late last month, there were also rumours that the P9 will come in multiple variants. What is expected is that Huawei besides launching its top of the line P9, will also come out with a cheaper P9 Lite, and a phablet the P9 MAX.
The last variant which Huawei plans to bring to the market as a treat for all its fans will be a beefed up variant of the P9, and will come with premium features.
The fourth model is set to offer a display whose size would lie between the P9, and the P9 MAX, with QHD resolution output. It will also feature additional RAM and storage. The fourth variant on top of this will feature an improved camera: a dual lens, dual (12 MP) sensor configuration described as a second-generation technology.
