Huawei P9 Plus

Last updated: Oct 12th, 2016.

The Huawei P9 Plus is a 2016 flagship from the Chinese company. It marked the first time Huawei made a significant marketing effort in Europe, with the device having made its debut in London. 

It features a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED pressure sensitive display, Huawei's custom Kirin 955 Octa-Core chipset, and 4GB of RAM + 64GB of storage.

The Huawei P9 Plus made headlines with a dual-rear 12-megapixel camera setup. The cameras were made in concert with Leica. One sensor captures imagery in a full RGB pixel array, while the other is taken in strict monochrome. The sensors work together to create an extremely high dynamic range of light, making it accept as much as 90% more light than other leading Android phones on the market at the time of its launch.

Beyond that, the Huawei P9 Plus is beautifully constructed with its metal unibody build, an infrared blaster and makes use of an advanced fingerprint scanner that can judge 3D depth.
