The successor of Huawei P8 is set to launch next month, and rumors about specifications are already making rounds on the internet. Tipster Evan Blass (@evleaks) predicted that the device is said to be launched on Apr. 6 and will hit the shelves on Apr. 9. To recall, the Chinese company launched the Huawei P8 last year on Apr. 9.

To corroborate Blass? claims, Huawei sent out media invites for an event, which is scheduled to be held on Apr. 6 in London. It reads ?Change the way you view the world?. This could mean, the upcoming device would have dual-camera setup as rumoured. Moreover, two circles were drawn on the top of the invite, which also hints that the handset might have more than one sensor, notes HT.

If the rumor turns out to be true, then it won?t be the first time that Huawei has included a dual-camera technology in the device. Honor 6 Plus has the same technology.

Last week, renders of the Huawei P9 surface on the internet, which stated the dual-camera technology and a fingerprint scanner. It is placed on the back of the device below the camera setup. It is worth pointing out that the final design of the device remains to be confirmed. Two separate leaks appeared online and both were by renders. One leak showed a square fingerprint scanner while the other showed a circular one.

However, the rumors about the hardware specifications were consistent. The Huawei P9 is expected to be powered by the company?s own processor- Kirin 950, coupled with 3GB RAM and it would sport 5.2-inch full-HD display. 32GB of internal storage and 3600mAh battery are included as well as 12MP primary camera with dual-lens setup from Leica optics.

Other rumors also claim that the Huawei would be releasing a premium version of the handset and it would have 6.2-inch display having a 2K resolution. The device will also have the same processor but 4GB RAM would be paired with it. The premium version may have 64GB of internal storage and a 4, 000mAh battery.

If speculations are to be believed, the Huawei P9 would carry a price tag of $289, whereas the premium variant would cost $627.
