Huawei is riding high after the release of the fantastic Nexus 6P, as well as the pretty okay Mate 8 and Honor 5X. The company's next move is to finally announce the P9, which has been rumored for months. Invites have been sent out for an event on April 6th in London. They didn't say it's for the P9, but it couldn't really be anything else.
The invite doesn't give away much of anything, but at the top is #00. Is this some sort of James Bond reference? Nah, it's probably a reference to the dual cameras that have been rumored (and leaked). The P9 is expected to come in four versions with the standard one packing a 5.2-inch 108op LCD and a Kirin 950 SoC, then a step up with more RAM and a Kirin 955. A Lite and larger Max variant are expected too.
More than likely this phone will be released internationally, but not in the US. When Huawei has thus far only toyed with the US market, I can only imagine it would have an actual event in the US if the flagship P series was finally coming to the States.
