The Huawei P9 is not expected to make an official appearance until after the hullabaloo of MWC, although the company does have a press event scheduled, but that hasn't stopped a new selection of leaks appearing online. The purported press images of the P9 show off a rear dual camera configuration, a fingerprint scanner located in the usual place, and quite possibly a metal body too.

Images purported to be of the P9 have been posted on Weibo, showing what the handset looks like and indicating a feature of the handset. The P9 looks set to continue Huawei P8 and Huawei Mate 8 metal design trend, while it also looks like it will be the latest to add a dual-lens camera setup. It also looks like the P9 will feature a fingerprint sensor on the back.

Other rumored hardware specifications include a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the company's own Kirin 955 SoC, 4GB of RAM, and a 2,900mAh battery. There have also been suggestions that Huawei may be preparing to launch a selection of P9 smartphones, ranging from a lower cost Huawei P9 Lite model through to a larger and more powerful enhanced edition.

Aditionally, the images indicate that the Huawei P9 will be available in white, black/gray, gold, and pink.
