Huawei will be launching its latest flagship smartphone P9 in India on August 17. The company has sent out an invite for the same without mentioning what is the device they are planning to launch but a company official had already said to The Mobile Indian that P9 is on its way.
In April this year, the P9 and P9 Plus smartphones were launched in the UK. The USP of the devices is its dual rear camera setup made in collaboration Leica. The Huawei P9 has a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixel) IPS LCD display and it is not known if both 3GB RAM/ 32GB and 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variants will be launched in India. It a sports a 3000 mAh battery and will run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top. On the processor side, it will be powered by HiSilicon Kirin 955 SoC . It will support 4G connectivity.
At the time of launch in London, Huawei P9 3GB RAM/ 32GB storage variant had a price tag of EUR 599 (roughly Rs 45,400), while the 4GB RAM/ 64GB storage variant was priced at EUR 649 (roughly Rs. 49,200). We are sure that Indian pricing will be below the international price tag but we have wait till the Indian launch before confirming it.
Coming back to camera functionality, P9 features two 12-megapixel sensors, with one capturing light in colour, and the other in monochrome. It is expected that the combination will provide sharp and detailed images even in low light conditions.
