Huawei P9 Launched in the Philippines, Dual 12MP Leica Camera in Tow

Chinese tech giant Huawei recently announced the entry to the Philippines their latest flagship devices, the Huawei P9. A followup to last year's P8, the P9's biggest selling point is its dual 12-megapixel Leica-developed rear cameras, with one featuring an RGB sensor and the other a monochrome sensor—which in theory would enable the device to reproduce images with brilliant detail, as more information is available for processing (we've been unable to try the P9 yet, so we can't vouch for its camera).

Specs-wise, the Huawei P9 boasts its homegrown 2.5GHz + 1.8GHz HiSilicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor, 3GB/32GB 4GB/64GB RAM and onboard storage configurations, a 5.2-inch FHD display, dual SIM connectivity, and Android Marshmallow 6.0. Interestingly on the display side, Huawei still opted for FHD instead of QHD for their caliber device, deviating from other leaders such as Samsung and LG.

Huawei will also launch the variations P9 Plus and P9 Lite mid this month at Huawei stores and Leica branches at Shangri-La and Greenbelt.

The Huawei P9 will sell for PHP 23,990, the bigger P9 Plus for PHP 29,990, and the more affordably configured P9 Lite for PHP 12,490.
