Huawei P9 series are slowly building up speed. The Huawei P9max, codenamed P950S, passed through AnTuTu, revealing some interesting specs. Its predecessor, the Huawei P8max, had a massive 6.8" 1080p screen, but the P9max will be different.

The device, which went through AnTuTu benchmarks by the P9 50S moniker, would be sporting a 6.2-inch screen size with 1600x2560 pixel resolution display. The pixel density would be 486ppi. The results also show the inclusion of Huawei's home-made octa-core Kirin 950 processor along with Mali-T880 MP4 GPU and 4GB RAM. Notably, the Kirin 950 SoC was unveiled by Huawei last week in an event in Beijing. The chipset features four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz.

The Huawei P9max will be powered by the new Kirin 950 chipset, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The benchmark scores were lower than other K950 scores so this must be an early version of the software. The software was based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Huawei only launched the Huawei P8 in April 2015, so talk of a successor is premature, but there are still some interesting snippets of news out there. Rumors began just a short while after the P8 was announced, with speculation the next version would have a very different design, this time with a curved rear panel and a curved screen to match.

Huawei also launched the Huawei P8 Max and Huawei Mate S, a much larger counterpart which came with a similar design and specs. Our first hint a P9 Max is in the works came in November, when a benchmark test was leaked, detailing the device. Benchmarks are easily faked, so it's not actual proof a P9 Max is being developed by Huawei.

Huawei isn't likely to release the Huawei P9, the Huawei P9 Max, or the equally likely Huawei P9 Lite in 2015, given the P8 won't be a year old until early 2016. This means more leaks are almost inevitable, and we'll keep you updated right here.
