Huawei P9 to launch in India soon


Huawei made Nexus 6P is undoubtedly the no non-sense Android smartphone currently. While the company basks in that glory, many are keen towards its new creation – Huawei P9 with Leica certified dual cameras at the back. Allen Wang, Head of Consumer Business Group for Huawei, told IndianExpress, “We’re looking at the right time for launching P series devices in India.”

Huawei has worked with Leica, a premium camera and optics maker, to co-engineer the camera modules of the Huawei P9. Huawei claims that since its partnership with Leica since February this year, Leica has been deeply involved in several aspects of the camera module including optical design, image data processing, optimisation, image quality and mechanical construction. Only after that the P9 is able to carry the Leica branding for its twin pair of 12-megapixel camera modules. Out of the two, one is regular camera while other is monochrome module.


Sporting a 5.2-inch Full HD display, Huawei houses its own Kirin 955 octa-core mobile chipset. The phone is offered in two variants – 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage. This phone boots EmotionUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. For connectivity, the P9 supports 4G LTE and dual-band Wi-Fi. It packs a non-removable 3,000mAh battery.


In Europe, Huawei sells the P9 at Rs. 45,000 approximately (EUR599) for 32GB storage model with 3GB of RAM and at Rs 48,800 approximately (EUR649) for 64GB storage model with 4GB of RAM.
