It isn't a secret that Huawei and LEICA have made a partnership, the only question would be when or for which device. From this leaked image it looks like this could be the upcoming Huawei P9. Set for a 6 April 2016 announcement, this leaked image clearly shows the LEICA logo with a SUMMARIT and f/2.2 aperture and 27mm focal length on the strip where the camera is located, along with dual cameras, what appears to be dual laser autofocus sensors and a finger print sensor below it. But then again, these do not match with previous leaked images.

In addition, it is currently being priced for below RM800. Does it manage to bridge the gap in terms of other aspects as well? We find out in our Huawei P8 Lite review below.
