Huawei is expected to launch its flagship model, the P9, in March next year. The upcoming phone is reportedly called IP03 and will pack a host of amazing features with new surprises for the camera.

Although rumours are doing rounds about the imminent release of the P9, it is still uncertain about the phone’s exact release date, says GSM Arena. It should be noted that the P9’s predecessor, the Huawei P8, was released in April this year. Therefore, the possibility of a new release by the Chinese tech company during March 2016 is on the cards.

There are not many details available about the phone right now, although Phone Arena hints at a few rumoured specs. The upcoming P9 will feature a 5.2-inch display, just like its predecessor, the P8. The phone may have curved designs for softer edges, although it is not known if the display itself will be curved.

As for the processor, the phone is rumoured to pack up an octa-core Kirin 950 processor for lightning-fast functions. It is possible that this new handset will feature a fingerprint scanner that will allow users to access various functions on the phone after they have used their finger impression. The phone will be powered by 4GB of RAM that will determine how quickly you can change from one page to the other.

Meanwhile, the P9 will come with a dual main camera. The back cover of the handset will reportedly have one opening for the LED flash and two openings for camera sensors. The phone might have an additional opening on the top backside for a laser focus, reports Team Android.

Huawei could also introduce a P9 Max sometime next year. If speculations are true then the P9 max will come in a 6.2-inch quad HD screen, bigger than the usual phone sizes, notes Phone Arena.

According to Android Pit, the Huawei P8 was priced at US$530 (approx. AU$733), so the P9 will be somewhat around US$500 (approx. AU$691).
