The Huawei P8 is one of the most impressive and fastest Android phone of 2015, and a sequel is almost inevitable. From past month rumors have been gathering around the successor to the very popular Huawei P8.

Until now we have seen number of rumors leaked pics, and specs.  Huawei is also teasing about it’s upcoming P9 device, couple of days back Huawei through a twitter post  teased a GIF-style video reminding us that the launch event will take place on April 6.

The device will feature a all-metal body with a rounded rectangle fingerprint sensor on the rear side. And to make the charging faster, Huawei embed a USB Type-C port along with a speaker grill and headphone socket.
