According to Blass, Huawei is planning to release the flagship P9 on April 9th. With the source’s very reliable track record, we have very little reason to believe this is inaccurate. What’s more, it matches up with last year’s launch schedule for the Huawei P8, which was also announced and released in April.

The Huawei P9 will actually be composed of four different variants, ranging from a cheaper mid-range to an expensive phablet with monstrous hardware. The P9 itself will be powered by a Kirin 950 SoC, which is made by Huawei themselves and benchmark results have shown that it left current processors eating dust in raw performance. Coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, the handset is said to feature a 5.2-inch screen with Full HD resolution. According to rumors, the cheaper version will be called Huawei P9 Lite and will come with a 5-inch display, a Snapdragon 650 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. Moving to the higher end part, there will be the Huawei P9 Max, with a Kirin 955 chipset and 4 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of ROM. The screen is said to be big at 6.2 inches, but other rumors point to a gigantic 6.8-inch size.
