Huawei P9 is a 5.2-inch smartphone that was unveiled in April 2016 together with the larger P9 Plus model.
What are the differences compared to its predecessor P8? One of the main differences is the camera optics. Huawei has partnered with the well-renowned camera manufacturer Leica to improve the camera performance based on Leica's Summarit lens design. P9 sports two dual rear cameras that increase light sensitivity and improves contrast by up til 50% by employing a monochrome camera sensor that lacks RGB filter. The front camera has a resolution of 8 MP, which means that your selfies will look bright and crisp under a wide range of light conditions.
The Kirin 955 processor with 8 cores and 3 GB RAM memory ensures that the phone handles a great variety of processing tasks with impressive speeds. The phone has 32 GB storage.
Huawei P9 is one of the first phones to run Android 6.0 Marshmallows. The UI is customised by Huawei and is called EMUI. The phone is available in six different colours: haze gold, mystic silver, titanium grey, prestige gold, rose gold and ceramic white.
The battery can be recharged quickly and has a capacity of 3,000 mAh.
What about the weight with such sophisticated camera optics, fast processor and high battery capacity? This phone is remarkably light given its advanced specs and weighs only 144 gram.
Do you like the P9, but don't want to spend $700 on a phone? Then the budget version Huawei P9 Lite might be worth having a look at. It retails for less than half the price of P9.
A newer model Huawei P10 64GB was released in Jan 2017.
