Description

Huawei P9 was announced to much fanfare as the first smartphone co-engineered with the iconic camera brand Leica. As such, Huawei's new flagship phone comes with the mission to "reinvent smartphone photography", and its camera setup is looking quite intriguing. On its back we see a dual-camera affair comprised of two 12MP snappers – 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. Cameras aside, the Huawei P9 shines with its premium design. It is built of aerospace-grade aluminum with rounded edges for greater comfort and is available in several striking colors, including Haze Gold and Ceramic White. A potent hardware setup and a long-lasting battery complete the package.
