The Huawei P9 featuring cameras co-engineered with Leica is coming very soon. They have just sent invites for its South Pacific launch that’s happening on the 5 May.
The event is taking place in Bali where Huawei will be showcasing its photography capabilities. To recap on the flagship specs, the P9 retains a similar 5.2″ Full HD IPS display as its predecessor, encased in a metal unibody design. Powering the device is their in-house developed Kirin 955 processor that’s mated to either 3GB or 4GB of RAM along with storage options of either 32GB or 64GB on board.
The key highlight, of course, is its dual-lens set up that’s co-engineered with Leica. Both are 12MP shooters with one taking images in colour while the other in monochrome. Low light shots are assisted by its 1.25 micron pixel size and it focuses quicker with its hybrid focus technology. For selfies, it gets a front facing 8MP shooter that comes with a host of beautification features.
Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh battery and it also gets a fingerprint scanner mounted at the back. Out of the box, it runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei’s EMUI 4.1 running on top. Once the P9 is launched in our region next week, it shouldn’t take too long for Huawei to offer it to Malaysia. We will be attending the event, so keep it locked on to our Facebook and Twitter for the latest updates.
