Huawei P9

[blockquote right=”pull-left”]
Huawei has today taken the wraps off the Huawei P9 flagship smartphone for 2016. Just like the current flagship norm, it will come in two flavors, the regular  p9 with a 5.2-inch screen and the larger phablet size 5.5 inch version. The rather standing feature of the P9 is the pair of 12 megapixel camera which are Leica-certified. One is a normal camera, but right next to it is another, monochrome module and according to Huawei, together, the two sensors can improve contrast in photos by 50 percent and triple the light information taken in by the phone.
