Huawei has announced it much rumoured flagship phones – the P9 and the P9 Plus. Both these phones were announced at an event in London and the phones sport dual camera setup by German camera maker Leica.
Huawei P9 and P9 Plus both sport a Leica dual 12MP camera setup. Of the two cameras, one camera sensor captures the colour information and the other sensor captures only the black and white and varying levels of gray information. This is similar to what we had seen on the QiKU Q Terra 808. There is no OIS in any of the phones and both have an 8MP front camera.
Kirin 955 chipset powers both the devices. Kirin 955 is a refined version of Kirin 950 and it houses an octa-core processor with one quad-core Cortex A72 cluster clocked at 2.5GHz and the other Cortex A53 quad-core cluster clocked at 1.8GHz.
The Huawei P9 comes with a 5.2-inch full HD display which gives it a 423ppi pixel density. It has an IPS LCD panel. It will come in two variants – the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. Apart from this you get the option to expand the storage by adding in a microSD card as well. It will come with 3,000 mAh battery and a USB Type-C connector.
The Huawei P9 Plus has a larger 5.5-inch full HD display which gives a 401ppi pixel density. The P9 Plus only comes in the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant. But the differentiating factor on the P9 Plus is that it comes with 3D Touch which it calls ‘Press Touch’. There is a 3,400mAh battery under the hood.
As for the price points, the Huawei P9 costs 599 Euros (approx Rs 45,500) and 649 Euros (approx Rs 49,500) and the P9 Plus costs 749 Euros (approx Rs 57,000). There is no news of if and when the products will launch in India.
