Huawei has announced its latest flagship smartphones, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus, in an event held in London yesterday.
The Huawei P9 comes in two variants – one with 3GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage while the other has 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. Both the versions come with expandable memory slot of 128 GB capacity. The Huawei P9 3GB is to cost â‚¬599 (approximately Rs 45,518) while 4 GB variant has a price tag of â‚¬649 (approximately Rs 49,326). On the other hand, the Huawei P9 Plus costs â‚¬749 (approximately Rs 56,857). The Huawei P9 comes in Titanium Grey, Mystic Silver, Prestige Gold, Haze Gold, Rose Gold and Ceramic White colour variants, while the Huawei P9 Plus is to be made available in Ceramic White, Rose Gold, Haze Gold and Quartz Grey colour variants.
The USP of the phones is their dual 12-megapixel rear cameras that come with camera sensors made by Leica – a famous German camera maker. The phone actually combines the data received from the rear cameras to create one 12 megapixel picture. While one of the sensors capture red, green and blue (RGB) information, the other collects monochrome image data. As per Huawei, due to use of such dual sensors, the phone delivers better contrast and offers superior performance in low light.
