Huawei P9 teaser hints at April 6th launch event
Huawei could steal Xiaomi's thunder this month with a potential launch and release of its high-end P9 series of smartphones.

Smartphone rumors are a dime a dozen due to how easy it is for leaks to occur. For example, we already knew some details about the HTC 10, Xiaomi Mi 5, and Vivo Xplay 5 before any official announcements or teasers. Now, a pinpoint launch date for the Huawei P9 is on the horizon according to Huawei itself.

The Chinese manufacturer has sent out press invitations for an April 6th event taking place in London. The invite bears the slogan "Change the way you see the world" with the mysterious hashtag #OO. The tag likely refers to the recently teased renders and images of the P9, so it is likely that the event will be related to its unveiling and eventual launch.

The high-end P9 smartphone is rumored to come in four separate SKUs of various sizes and specifications. Twitter user Evan Blass also hinted earlier this week about an April reveal date for the same smartphone. Rumored features include dual LED Flash, dual rear cameras, and laser auto-focus. See our previous report on the P9 for more details on expected features and hardware. The smartphone skipped CES 2016 completely where many were expecting it to be officially revealed.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
