Huawei P9 Will Feature a Leica-Made Dual Camera Setup

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

Huawei has confirmed that Leica is the company behind the P9‘s camera bits. The smartphone is set to launch at an event in London this Wednesday, and the vast majority of Huawei’s marketing has focused on the handset’s photography credentials.

A major specs leak last month suggested that the P9 would feature a 12-megapixel dual camera setup, similar to the one found in the LG G5. “We are going to launch our P9 flagship phone very soon and this is a product that we worked with Leica to produce,” Huawei deputy chairman Guo Ping reportedly said during a recent press conference in China.

As well as LG, Samsung has made its own major camera push with the S7 and S7 Edge, and it’s been reported that the upcoming HTC 10 will also feature a dual camera arrangement. As ever, it’s nice to see everyone doing things differently.

Camera specs aside, the Huawei P9 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch, Full HD display, a 2GHz Kirin 950 octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a hefty 3,000mAh battery. It’s rumoured to be launching alongside a P9 Max and P9 Lite, which should squeeze in different processors. Wherever the chips fall, we'll be there on Wednesday to clear everything up for you. [NDTV]
