by Joe 9

The wait is over. Today, Huawei officially announced the Huawei P9 and the P9 Plus smartphones at an event in London. We have been bombarded with numerous leaks about the device in the past two months, and now, finally, we have some official details. As expected, the Huawei P9 series phones will be the first smartphone developed in partnership with Leica.

Huawei-P9 001


The Huawei P9 comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p display with 2.5D glass on top. The bezels are super thin, measuring just 1.7mm. Under the hood, the phone will be powered by the Kirin 955 chipset that features quad Cortex A72 cores @ 2.5GHz and quad Cortex A53 cores @ 1.8GHz. There are two variants of the device, one with 3GB RAM  + 32GB storage and other with 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The storages are expandable via MicroSD.

Now, coming to the most interesting part of the device. The P9 will feature two 12MP sensors at the back. One will be a monochrome camera while the other will be an RGB color sensor. The former sensor will aid the phone to take more accurate shots along with black and white pictures. These two will work together for taking some great shots. Up front, there will be an 8MP shooter ideal for selfies.

The Huawei P9 comes with a 3000mAh battery on board, packed inside a slim 6.95mm body. The company has done a wonderful job with the all metal design, keeping it slim and lightweight. The phone just weighs 144 grams. The 360 degrees fingerprint sensor is located at the back. As for software, the phone runs on Android 6.0 with EMUI 4.1 on top. Other features on the P9 include stereo speakers and USB Type-C.

These are pretty powerful specs and in line with what we heard from the leaks before. Coming to the pricing, the Huawei P9 3GB RAM version starts at 599 EUR ($681) and the 4GB RAM version will retail at 649 EUR ($739). There are lots of colors available like Ceramic White, Haze Gold, Rose Gold, Titanium Silver, Mystic Silver and Prestige Gold.

This will be a better-specced version of the Huawei P9, with a larger display and juicier battery. The Huawei P9 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The phone has the same Kirin 955 chipset under the hood with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option as standard. The storage will be expandable. At the back, the phone comes with the same 12MP Dual camera setup as the P9 with an 8MP front facing shooter as well. The battery is larger, measuring 3400mAh and for software, you have Android 6.0 with EMUI 4.1 like the P9. Pricing is naturally higher, more than $100 higher than the top end P9 variant. So, the Huawei P9 Plus will retail at around $850.

The company plans to release the device in a lot of regions including Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, China, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Qatar, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Egypt, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary etc.

      • Anderson Casotti

        he is really right, and the Kirin could be a good processor but is not comparable to the top processors.

If you have nothing serious to say mate, there is no need to insult people. If you Have alot of energy and don’t know how to spend it, then you can always clean a pool or cut your neighbors grass…..

          because u ar underestimating chinese smartphones.. what u think crap iphone is where manufactured? or samsung phones???
          Idiot mean stupid person .. who doesn’t know how business works in this world.. When u say ”so much for chinese smartphone”
          The even shittier quality is iphone where millions ppl goes to claim warranties or has problems so often same with samsung phones..
          The quality is on the same level There is no difference ..The difference is in the stupid name and in popularity .. If I told you or I would lie to you that particular phone is from USA you would go like ; omg that is awesome quality .. but as long as you hear china it must be crap??
          No no my dear .. time is changing china isn’t slave anymore for lazy countries such usa .. Chinese brands now standing out ! japan brands loosing .. samsung and apple will too .. The card is turning believe or not …

  • Pedro Peter

    Very NICE

  • mister unknown

    I think you misses the point. What i was saying
    Is that it is too expensive for a Chinese phone. They suppose to be the alternative devices in the west without compromising the quality, for people who can afford to buy the big brands. No my work is finance, business and data related within the IT sector so i know e few things about R&D, cost of production, nargins, USP’s etc.. So i don’t need lecturing. Also if i wouldn’t have a clue about Chinese smartphones, i wouldn’t be on this site. Finaly i owned a ZTE Elite, Oneplus One and an Oppo Find 7 and i am looking to get something new, therefore you need to know the people before you call them idiots.
