Huawei's upcoming P9 flagship smartphone is expected to come out some time in the first half of 2016, and VentureBeat has obtained close-up photos showing off the phone’s body and a dual-camera system on its back. The feature looks like a revival of the Honor 6 Plus' similar camera setup from last year. The P9 will reportedly contain two 12-megapixel sensors with Leica-made lenses that aid in focusing, according to VentureBeat's reputable phone leaker Evan Blass, who obtained the photos from an anonymous leaker.

The device will be the fifth handset in Huawei's sprawling and somewhat arbitrarily named P-series. Huawei hasn't confirmed its existence, deciding not to unveil the P9 at Mobile World Congress last week, but it's all but confirmed through other recent photo leaks that the company is working on a successor to last year's P8.

The P9 is rumored to come in four potential variants including a standard 5.2-inch model, a budget-friendly version, one with a larger screen, and one with more powerful components. It's also supposed to have some fast innards including a HiSilicon Kirin 950 octa-core processor and 3GB of memory, as well as a rather large 3900mAh battery. There's no pricing or availability information just yet, but those details are expected at some point this spring.
