Exclusive: Oh beer, oh beer: Huawei confirms March 9 event isn’t the P9 launch

Earlier today a teaser image appeared online (see it here, credit: ifanr), suggesting the Huawei P9 launch would take place on March 9 in Berlin – however that’s not the case.

TechRadar contacted the Chinese manufacturer, and a spokesperson told us “there is no Huawei event on March 9” – so you can scrub that date from your diary.

We still fully expect the Huawei P9 to launch in the coming month or so, but for now Huawei is remaining coy, saying, “we will keep you updated of any upcoming events or launches.”

Anyone for beer?

It’s still unclear whether Huawei’s offer of beer is still available on March 9 in the German capital, and we’ve asked for clarification on what the teaser image is referring to. We’ll update this article once we hear back.

In the meantime, those looking for information on the Huawei P9 can feast their eyes on a range of leaked specs that tip the flagship phone to sport a 5.2-inch full HD display, Kirin 950 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android Marshmallow, USB-C port, a huge 3900mAh battery and dual 12MP cameras on the rear.

There’s also talk of a premium version of the P9 with a faster clocked processor, 4GB or RAM and either 64GB or 128GB of internal space.
