Huawei announces P9 launch event

Huawei has announced the date for what will almost certainly be a launch event for the Huawei P9 smartphone.

The Chinese manufacturer has sent out notes to the press asking that they “save the date” – 6 April – for a London event that will “change the way you see the world”.

This would appear to tie in with previous suggestions of an 5 April or 6 April launch date for the Huawei P9 smartphone.

Sat on top of these words is “#OO” – a hash tag followed by two Os. This would seem to signify the dual-lens camera set-up that has already been revealed in leaked images of the Huawei P9.

We’re expecting the Huawei P9 to be the company’s new flagship phone, with a premium all-metal design, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, an octa-core Kirin 950 CPU with Mali-T880 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage.

It will also have a dual-lens 12-megapixel camera, a USB Type-C connector, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a massive 3,900mAh battery.

The Huawei P8 was extremely appealing because it mixed a premium design with a mid-range price, which is always a compelling combination. Hopefully the P9 will improve its performance and software quirks this time around.
