With the seemingly looming release of Huawei P9, more and more details about the smartphone are already emerging online. Recently, alleged photos of the smartphone showed up online revealing possible specs and features of the Huawei P8 successor.

The possible camera specs of Huawei P9 will most probably be a delight for Leica fans. According to a report from TechnoBuffalo, the rear camera will feature a dual setup powered by a pair of 12 MP sensors with Leica lenses. It was also noted that Huawei is reportedly planning to offer “unique photography features” come Huawei P9 release date.

According to the latest rumors, the Huawei P9 will ship with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, octa-core Kirin 950 processor with Mali-T880 graphics, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 3,900mAh battery. The handset has also shown up numerous times sporting a dual-rear camera configuration, which is expected to be built from a pair of 12 megapixel camera sensors complete with Leica-made lenses. Other reports anticipate that we will see a range of handsets launched by Huawei, including the regular P9, a P9 Lite, P9 Max, and an enhanced edition.

A fair amount of Huawei's future ambitions will be riding on the success of the P9, as the company plans to build on its success from last year. Huawei is looking to catch up and even surpass industry leaders Samsung and Apple in the next five years. To accomplish this bold target, the company plans to focus on building global brand recognition for its products and wants to partner up with at least one carrier in the US this year. A best in class smartphone would undoubtedly aid Huawei's cause too.
