Huawei really shot into the limelight with the Nexus 6P, which has been a blockbuster hit. Thanks to the beautiful construction of the phone, a cold metal body as well as native Android, Nexus 6P is one of the best Android phones that you can buy today, even though it is about a good eight months old now. When you deliver such a hit product, following it up is always a challenge, and Huawei seem to have accepted the challenge. As a result, they have gone back to the drawing board and announced an innovative device in the form of the Huawei P9. The P9 was launched in India today, even though the global launch was about three months or so ago. The phone has been priced at Rs 39,999
The P9 comes with a Dual Lens setup on the back, which has two 12MP cameras on the device made by Leica. The way these two camera sensors work in tandem is rather interesting. One camera is used to take your usual shot, while the other camera takes monochromatic shot for an extra set of details, and the two are then merged together in order to give you a really neat output. We have seen other phones like LG G5, HTC One M8 sporting dual cameras and if the rumors are to be believed then the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus would also have a similar setup.
Other than the dual camera, the phone features a very comfortable form factor. You have a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS display with octa-core Kirin 955 processor at the heart of the device. Huawei has announced the phone in 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage, though, in the international market, you do have a 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM variant too. The phone will run Android Marshmallow with Huawei’s own EMUI on top of it. There is a USB Type-C connector, fingerprint scanner as well as a 3000 mAh non-removable battery that is bundled with the device. The phone will come with a hybrid SIM slot.
Huawei’s sales partner Flipkart is offering a 2-year warranty with the phone as well as a 3-month screen replacement guarantee if you are to break it. It will go on sale starting today at 3PM.
