We're getting a better idea of what the Huawei Mate 9 and its camera array might look like, thanks to a new set of leaks.
These leaked renders come from Baidu and appear to show a Mate 8-ish look as well as a modified dual-camera module with a different orientation than the Huawei P9. It's unclear if the dual rear camera will sport Leica branding like the P9. There's also some confusion regarding the resolution of the cameras. Apart from cameras, the leaked renders also depict the Mate 9 with a fingerprint scanner on its back and a metal build.
There have been a few Huawei Mate 9 rumours floating around in the last few months, including a recent leak involving a couple pics posted on Chinese forum site Weibo. Those pics were allegedly of the casing for the forthcoming flagship smartphone, and some specifications were listed alongside them. If the specs are true, the Huawei Mate 9 will have a 5.9-inch screen with a Full HD resolution.
The Mate 9 might also feature the Kirin 960 processor, something touted since April and the launch of the P9 series. And there will be options for 4GB and 6GB of RAM, much like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is likely to feature the latter in China. The only other recently-leaked specification that didn't resonate so well is that the phone will come with a 16-megapixel camera on the rear.
All previous leaks have claimed the phone will either have a 12-megapixel snapper or a mammoth 20-megapixel sensor, topping the dual cameras on the P9. There is no word of a release date, but with IFA 2016 only a few weeks away, we have a feeling it could make an appearance there.
Huawei is holding a press conference at IFA in Berlin on 1 September.
