According to Venture Beat, reports are claiming that Huawei has plans for the upcoming P9 smartphone to be released in four variants – the normal P9 type, a P9 lite, a P9max, and another unknown advanced P9 in the making.
The fourth unknown advanced Huawei P9 could be a “feature-enhanced” model, equipped with a larger screen display but slightly smaller than the P9max. What's more, the enhanced P9 edition could also have better RAM and more storage space, and a rumoured dual-lens 12MP rear camera. Besides that, the normal P9 is expected to carrying a 5.2-inch display and we can bet the P9max should be over 6-inch just like the P8max.

An unidentified Huawei smartphone was spotted in GeekBench database and according to the leaked scores, it managed to score 1913 (single-core) and a multi-score of 6870. Both of these scores are higher than the Huawei Mate 8, which scored 1700 and 6200. Could this be a new smartphone or the upcomingHuawei P9?
In addition, it was reported that the new device is featuring the latest Kirin 950 processor, 4GB RAM, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. However, the score could also mean that Huawei has found a way to push the Kirin 950 processor to another level that we might not know yet.

The CES 2016 will start in Las Vegas in two days time and according to analyst Pan Jiutang, he speculated that Huawei might reveal the new Huawei P9 packing a 6GB RAM inside.
And just like our previous rumour news of it having two camera lens, Jiutang also expects to see the same thing. Tech specs wise, the P9 might sport an octa-core CPU, Mali-T880 MP4 GPU supporting the Kirin 950 chipset, and a 5.2-inch AMOLED screen with the possibility of a 1440 x 2560 resolution display. A deluxe version could also make an appearance, powered by a Kirin 950 chipset, with a 64GB storage (unknown expandable memory), a 6.2-inch display with a QHD (1440 x 2560) resolution, and running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
