The Tuesday pre-CES 2016 event was confirmed by Huawei's Senior Vice President on Weibo, which is a Chinese equivalent of Twitter. The company in another teaser also tipped the launch of an X series device at the event, speculated to be the Honor X3 phablet with a 6.2-inch display.
A tipster on Weibo added some purported specifications, including 6GB of RAM. If true, the smartphone would be the largest capacity of RAM on a smartphone. Other details included dual rear camera setup and fingerprint scanner.
Some of the specifications previously tipped for the P9 smartphone include a 5.2-inch QHD display and Kirin 950 SoC under the hood.
Back in November, the alleged Huawei P9 Max smartphone was spotted on AnTuTu benchmarks giving us partial information on the specifications. The benchmark results had also claimed the inclusion of Kirin 950 SoC processor. We can expect that the smartphone spotted at the AnTuTu may launch at CES.
Another smartphone likely to be showcased at the upcoming CES 2016 is the Huawei Mate 8 flagship phablet. The handset went on sale in China last month. The global availability and pricing details of the Huawei Mate 8 can be expected announced during CES 2016 in January.
The Mate 8 was priced at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 31,200) for the 3GB RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage option, while the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage model was priced at CNY 3,699 (roughly Rs. 38,500), and the 4GB RAM and 128GB storage model was priced at CNY 4,399 (roughly Rs. 45,800) respectively. The Mate 8 Champagne Edition was also unveiled at CNY 6,888 (roughly Rs. 71,700).
