For many, first impressions count for everything when unboxing a phone for the first time. There’s little question that the Huawei P9 exudes quality from the moment you set hands on it — at only 144 grams and 6.95mm thick, it’s slender and unobtrusive in the hand, and the metal body oozes “premium.” As someone who’s more accustomed to a 5.5-inch screen, the Huawei P9 actually feels a little on the small side, but that says more about the market elsewhere than anything else. The Huawei P9 isn’t really too small.
Huawei P9 Gallery? Flip the phone over, and you can instantly see what all the hype has been about: The Huawei P9 has been “coengineered” by German optics company Leica. And the phone has not one, but two lenses — one for the RGB camera that specializes in capturing color, and one for the monochrome camera that’s all about capturing the details.
One of the key features on the Huawei P9 is the camera. Huawei is betting big on its partnership with legendary German camera-maker Leica, and it promises to revolutionize smartphone photography with the dual-sensor camera on the P9.
Huawei P9 Gallery? The P9 has a 12 MP dual-lens setup on the back, one with an RGB sensor specifically for color reproduction and the other purely for capturing black and white detail. The f/2.2 dual lenses carry the Leica seal of approval. While there was some concern over how involved Leica actually was during the design phase, that has all been cleared up. The camera setup was co-engineered with Leica as part of a long-term partnership that was announced back in February.
