Huawei has had a busy few months, not only joining the Nexus programme with the excellent Nexus 6P, but also launching the great Huawei Mate S with a pressure sensitive display and more recently boosting its phablet line with the Huawei Mate 8.

Huawei P9

However its conventional flagship hasn't been its best phone. The Huawei P8 was good, but blighted by software woes. Could the Huawei P9 be the Chinese company's crowning moment?

The Chinese company earlier this month confirmed it is hosting an event in London on April 6, where the flagship is expected to be launched.

The current lot of leaked photographs of the Huawei P9 point to a metal body for the smartphone and affirm the rumor of the presence of a dual camera. Barely a week ago, we reported that the company's president was spotted using the Huawei P9. That image also showed off the dual cameras on the rear of the Android-powered flagship.

The 5.2-inch model of the Huawei P9 is expected to have a 1,080p screen. Rumors have also pointed to a HiSilicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor for the device, as well as a Mali-T880 GPU. The Huawei P9 could also pack in 3 GB of RAM and a 3,900 mAh battery.

The Huawei P9 has appeared in all its variants online at GizOK. Pricing was included with the P9 at $499, the Huawei P9 Max at $549 and the Huawei P9 Lite at $309.
