Huawei’s upcoming P9 smartphone, which has already leaked out ahead of its official unveiling, has now been pictured out in the wild. Photos of the handset being used confirm it will have dual rear-facing camera sensors and a fingerprint scanner.

While these images don’t really uncover anything new, they do confirm that the previous photo leaks weren’t fakes. We get a good look at the P9’s dual camera setup, which is accompanied by what looks like an LED flash, and a laser autofocus sensor.

Huawei adopted the latter for its Nexus 6P. Another feature it will port over from that is the rear-facing fingerprint scanner, USB-C connectivity, and an attractive aluminum unibody design with chamfered metal edges.

Huawei still hasn’t announced an official press event for the P9, but recent rumors have claimed it will take place on April 6. It’s thought there could be three different versions of the device — A P9, P9 Plus, and P9 Lite — each of which will offer different specifications.

The standard P9 will reportedly come with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, Huawei’s own Kirin 950 chip, a 3900mAh battery, a fingerprint reader, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The high-end P9 Plus is expected to have a faster Kirin 955 processor and 4GB of RAM.
