Huawei P9 Set to Launch in India Today

Highlights

  • The Huawei P9 features a larger variant - the Huawei P9 Plus
  • Differences between the two phones include displays, batteries
  • Both smartphones feature a dual rear camera setup
China's Huawei is set to launch its flagship smartphone in India at a gala event in New Delhi on Wednesday. The Huawei P9, which was unveiled alongside the Huawei P9 Plus back in April, is already listed on Flipkart with an 'exclusive' tag, though there's no sign of the P9 Plus just yet.

Huawei made headlines when it launched the P9 and P9 Plus, with the smartphones featuring a dual rear camera setup that was designed in collaboration with Leica. The setup comprises two 12-megapixel sensors with f/2.2 apertures, and while one captures light in colour, the other captures monochrome images. As for the selfie cameras, both smartphones come with 8-megapixel offerings.

The primary difference between the Huawei P9 and the Huawei P9 Plus are the display sizes, with the former sporting a 5.2-inch full-HD IPS LCD display, and the latter a 5.5-inch full-HD Super Amoled display (with Pressure Touch technology). While the Huawei P9 was launched in two memory/ inbuilt storage variants, the Huawei P9 Plus only comes in one configuration. While the P9 bears a 3000mAh battery, the P9 Plus bears a 3400mAh battery.

We can expect the Huawei P9 price in India to be roughly the same as its pricing during the global launch. The Huawei P9 3GB of RAM/ 32GB storage variant was priced at EUR 599 (roughly Rs. 45,400), the Huawei P9 4GB of RAM/ 64GB storage variant at EUR 649 (roughly Rs. 49,200), and the Huawei P9 Plus 4GB of RAM/ 64GB storage at EUR 749 (roughly Rs. 56,800).

Apart from the display, battery, and memory/ storage configurations, other specifications of the Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus are identical. The two Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones run EMUI 4.1 on top, and are powered by the company's Hi-Silicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor (four Cortex-A72 cores clocked at 2.5GHz + four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz).

Both smartphones support expandable storage via microSD card (up to 128GB); and offer 4G LTE and USB Type-C connectivity support. The company is expected to bring at least some of the colour variants announced at the global launch to India - Ceramic White, Haze Gold, Prestige Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and Titanium Grey.
