Ahead of the launch of the Huawei P9, previously reported by AndroidPIT to be on April 6, a possible 'Lite' version of the device has been revealed by serial leaker Evan Blass. This model is said to be a stripped-down version of the flagship P9.
The P9 'Lite' model supposedly remains at 5.2-inches, has a full HD 1080p resolution and 3 GB RAM, but sees a cutback in its processor, which won't be the Kirin 950. It will also reportedly lack an all-metal body and rear dual camera, as well as a fingerprint scanner.
Huawei P9 specsThe Huawei P9 seems likely to feature the new Kirin 955 processor – a chip that Huawei itself is developing. Leaked benchmarks suggest that this is even faster than Samsung's powerful Exynos 7420, meaning the Huawei P9 could be one of the fastest phones on Android.
In early March, VentureBeat reported on a device that they had been trusted with temporarily by an anonymous insider. They reported that the device bore a whopping 3,900-mAh battery, which powered a Kirin 950 chip, Mali-T880 GPU and 3 GB of RAM.
They also confirmed the presence of dual-rear camera setup.
