Both handsets sport Leica powered cameras, the main feature around which Huawei builds its marketing campaign for these two bad boys. Huawei’s P9 duo will compete in 2016 against Samsung’s Galaxy S7’s and Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
The standard P9 smartphone feature a 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD (1080p), it is equipped with Huawei’s own Kirin 955 octa-core CPU (4 x ARM Cortex-A72 cores + 4 x ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.5GHz, 1.8GHz respectively). Huawei P9 comes with a slick and slim (only 6.9mm) brushed Aluminium body, with 32GB / 64GB internal storage, 3 / 4GB of RAM, 2 x 12MP Leica lenses with LED Flash on the back, one capturing colours, the second one monochrome (in black and white only), combo expected to deliver highly detailed images and much better quality pictures(noise reduction) in dark places. Ohh, almost forgot. There is no Optical Image Stabilization, but you wont probably need it.
Huawei P9 Plus comes with a slightly larger display, that packs an AMOLED 5.5-inch panel with the same 1080p screen resolution, but with pressure sensitive technology embedded called Press Touch. P9 Plus packs stereo speakers, a non-removable 3,400 mAh battery with Dual IC Rapid Charge, meaning one will be able to get 6 hours of talk time from a 10 minutes charge.
Both handsets are coming in Ceramic White, Haze Gold, Rose Gold, Titanium Grey, Mystic Silver and Prestige Gold colours to a store near you in Europe and the Middle East (29 countries in total) on April 16. Price wise, Huawei says the P9 will go on sale for £449, while the P9 Plus asking price is £549.
