Huawei has kept a low profile in the Indian market this past year, deciding not to launch its previous flagship phone, the Huawei P8. Although sister brand Honor has been active in the market all this while, the only significant Huawei-branded device to launch in India recently was the Google Nexus 6P (Review). This has now changed, with the launch of the new Huawei P9.

Huawei P9 Summary

The Huawei P9 is the joint effort between Huawei and Leica as it boasts of a dual-lens camera setup for better low-light photography. The P9 features a 5.2-inch full-HD display with tapering edges all around. It's powered by Huawei's Kirin 955 octa-core SoC, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage which can be expanded by up to 256GB. You get Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei's Emotion UI 4.1 running on top. The two 12-megapixel camera sensors mange to deliver excellent performance in daylight and low-light. We just wish we had OIS and 4K recording support too, to seal the deal. Battery life is pretty good too. If a good camera is important to you, the Huawei P9 is certainly worth considering.

  • A good gift for my wife
    Flipkart Customer on Flipkart
    A good gift for my wife TOP 1: Leica Certified Lens Leica, known for fine German craftsmanship and reliable quality, has been held as a legendary brand in the world of photography. Fans of the brand praise these lenses for blowing life into photos. When describing excellent lenses we use phrase like ?high permeability? or sentence like ?capture the sense of airiness in the picture.? High permeability here is easily understood while ?airiness? takes time to come across. Airiness refers to unparalleled resolution and restoration capability that Leica lens possesses. Leica lens captures micro details in dark areas, with no overexposure in bright areas, and presents richer and smoother color saturation, bring airiness to photos. Leica uses low-contrast lens, giving photos more details in tonal value. An additional advantage of shooting with a Leica is that there?s more room for editing even though in the same RAW format. Leica RAW format photos have greater tolerance than RAW photos shot by any other brand?s camera on the market, hence greater color range to adjust in post-production. Leica lens? color performance and capability to suppress high brightness gives photos richer details and greater color saturation. By reducing the high brightness, Leica lens captures richer colors than human eye. The optics and coating technologies of Leica lens ensures greater light control, thus details can be preserved and photos are more color dynamic. P9 features the Summarit camera lenses from Leica, subject to stringent quality screening by engineers at Leica in accordance with the most demanding quality criterion. TOP 2: Leica Picture Quality: Clarity, Details, Color & SNR RGB camera (color) is for recording color information, and the monochrome camera (mono) is for capturing silhouettes and details in high resolution. The light sensitivity and resolving power of monochrome camera are superior due to the absence of color filter. Dual camera solution combines strengths of monochrome camera and RGB camera that lead to better image quality. Every Picture output can Produce Signature Leica Color and Monochrome sharp Outputs for every Click , With a merging Algorithm running on QUAD Core ISP. TOP 3: Dual Camera Two Customized 12-megapixel sensors ? one RGB color and one black and white ? allows the P9 to capture up to 50 percent more detail and 300 percent more light than conventional single-camera smartphone designs. P9 Features Pixel size of 1.25 m, Dedicated QUAD Core ISP, Virtual Aperture up to F0.95 , Better Bokeh effect than entry level DSLR. TOP 4: Image algorithm Huawei?s proprietary IMAGESmart 5.0 algorithm, designed to work seamlessly with the dual-camera architecture to create pictures with enhanced color and detail TOP 5: World First Smartphone with Dedicated Depth Sensor World?s first smartphones to ship with built-in depth measurement integrated circuits, resulting in faster image focusing and processing speeds. Dedicated Depth Measurement chip also helps improve power consumption and smartphone performance by reducing the workload of the central processor (CPU). TOP 6: Hybrid Focus Technology Huawei?s proprietary Hybrid Focus technology, Leverages three sensors ? laser, depth and contrast ? to determine the best focus for each photo taken and to yield the highest-quality result. TOP 7: Large Aperture Large-aperture photography function on the P9 and P9 Plus enable users to experiment with innovative imaging effects, making the background appear out of focus while accentuating the main object. TOP 8: Leica Film mode Three Leica film modes for their cameras: Standard, Vivid Colors and Smooth Colors. Each film mode faithfully reproduces the authentic colors of Leica, capturing the unique style of Leica TOP 9: Better Selfies Autofocus in the front camera for better selfies , Instant Preview. TOP 10: Industry Design Superior-grade 2.5D glass and an aerospace-class aluminum unibody, featuring diamond-cut edges rounded out by carefully balanced curvatures, 6.95mm in thickness.
