If you had checked our Facebook page recently, you would have seen our post on the Huawei G9 smartphone. We had reported a couple of days back that the Chinese smartphone giant was planning to release the Huawei P9 Lite as the Huawei G9. And today, the company has confirmed the details to some extent.


Huawei has just announced that it will release a new Huawei G9 smartphone tomorrow. The company even released a teaser image for the launch, wherein we can can see the back of the device. And from the image, the G9 will sport a very similar design as the Huawei P9 series. However, like expected the phone will not come with a dual camera setup, instead we can see just a single rear camera on board. The image also confirms that there will be three colors available for the device, namely white, black and gold.¬†Just by the teaser, it’s hard to say whether the Huawei G9 comes with a plastic body, but recently the phone had passed through TENAA, which confirmed the plastic back on the device.

Along with the mid-range Huawei G9, we can also expect a new tablet from the smartphone maker. For now, we only know that the tab will be of 7-inches, but expect more details after tomorrow’s launch event.
