Description

Huawei P9 Plus is a powerful, high-end smartphone aimed at power users and those who demand a no-compromise Android device. It stands out with its potent hardware setup and premium design, but the feature we're intrigued by the most is the dual 12MP camera system at the back. One takes photos in color, while the other shoots monochrome images in greater detail. The increased light sensitivity of the camera tandem should result in outstanding low-light performance.
