Huawei launched their new high-end smartphone P9 in India today. P9 is priced Rs. 39999 and available exclusively on Flipkart from today via open sale (no registration required). Huawei P9 comes with 5.2” full HD display at 1920X1080 resolution and powered by HUAWEI Kirin 955 (64-bit), Octa-core (4 x 2.5 GHz ARM Cortex A72+ 4 x 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex A53) CPU with 3GB RAM. It has an internal storage of 32GB and expandable memory support up to 128GB.
P9 equipped with dual 12MP Leica lens (f/2.2 apertures) rare camera and 8MP front camera. Two lenses used to capture more light, one is monochrome and the second one is RGB sensor. Huawei P9 runs on their EMUI 4.1 UI based on latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow and backed by 3000 mAH battery. It’s available in 3 colors – Mystic Silver, Prestige Gold and Titanium Grey.
Customers will get 3 added benefits with Huawei P9. Extended warranty of 2 years, 3 months free screen replacement if broken and 3 months product replacement guarantee in case of any hardware issue.
According to the features, I think it’s overpriced and may not be able grip attention compared to other high-end smartphones available at much lower price.
