Huawei is all set to make an appearance over at Mobile World Congress later this week, and in gearing up for it, they have also teased an upcoming device that will sport a stylus. However, the clues given are not too much to work with, and hence, we have a rather vague idea on what there is in store. Perhaps this leak of an alleged Huawei P9 render might be able to shed more light or information? However, a number of new leaked pictures, which allegedly depict the P9's design, show us that this may not be the case.

The shots also provide some eagerly-anticipated insight on the design of the phone and provide proof for some of its previously hinted features, namely a dual rear camera setup and a back-mounted fingerprint reader. It also seems clear now that the Huawei P9 will have a metal body and a 2.5 curved screen on the front. From the looks of it, it will also be offered in a number of colors, including gold, white, pink and gray.

Taking a quick refresher about the upcoming all-new device, the Huawei P9 will apparently feature a 5.2-inch display that will come with a 1080p resolution instead of a Quad HD resolution. Working under the hood will be a Kirin 955 SoC, which has been designed and manufactured in-house by Huawei as part of its HiSilicon Kirin brand of mobile processing chips. The SoC comes with an octa-core 64-bit application processor that will be clocked at between 2.3 to 2.5 GHz according to a leaked report from yesterday. As for the rest of the hardware specs, the upcoming phone is expected to incorporate 4 GB of RAM, a 2,900 mAh of battery, an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie-cam and dual 12-megapixel rear-facing primary cameras.

Reports say that there will be four different P9 variants – a phablet Huawei P9max, a more compact Huawei P9 Lite, the regular P9, and a supposed premium, high-power edition of the P9. We don't expect to see the smartphone at the MWC 2016 next week, but hey – who knows?
