Huawei P9 launch event scheduled for April 6 in London


Chinese multinational Huawei was expected to release its flagship smartphone P9 around April 2016. Huawei has sent out press invites for an event that has been planned for 6th April. The event will be organized by the company in London.

The invites for the event give out no hint of the Huawei P9 launch. However, the image displays two circles representing the two snappers at the back. In addition, a tagline has also been included which asks the audience to change the way they see the world.

This tagline yet again refers to the camera of the latest handset which is supposed to feature Leica lenses after its recent alliance.

P9 by Huawei is speculated to be released in four choices including the Standard version, Huawei P9 Lite, P9 Premium and P9 Max.
