For performance-wise, it is powered by Huawei own-developed 64-bit Hisilicon Kirin 955 octa-core processor, which consists of four Cortex A72 cores, four Cortex A53 cores and Mali T880-MP4 GPU alongside 3GB of RAM memory. The internal storage of Huawei P9 is 32GB and you don’t have to worry about storage because it also supports external storage expansion through microSD card.
This 5.2-inches device has dual 12-megapixel rear cameras with Leica SUMMARIT lenses and 1.25-micron pixels promising brilliant image quality in low-light conditions. It also has an independent depth measurement chip and proprietary hybrid-focus technology. These phones also have full manual control and RAW support. On the other hand, the front-facing camera of Huawei P9 is an 8-megapixel shooter. With the supportive dual-tone LED flash on the back, users are able to capture brighter photos during the night and under low light conditions. Furthermore, the LED flash is can be used as a flash light as well.
The fingerprint sensor of Huawei P9 is on the back panel, right below the camera lens. Other key features/specs of this smartphone are NFC (selected model), infrared sensor, 3.5mm audio jack, multiple sensors, Bluetooth, GPS, USB Type-C, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.
Regarding its network support, P9 is compatible with multiple LTE network bands. As a result, the device supports at least download speed on 4G of 150Mbps and upload speed on 4G of 50Mbps. This Huawei branded smartphone supports dual-SIM, hence users are able to insert two SIM cards together. However, the microSD will take up one of the slots.
EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow version is the operating system of Huawei P9. As for the battery, it does come with 3,000mAh of battery juice (non-removable).
This Marshmallow flavoured smartphone is available in silver, grey and gold colors and is priced at MYR 2,099. Unfortunately, the 4GB RAM version is unlikely to launch here after the Chinese firm confirmed that the P9 Plus will be launched in the near future.
