Huawei P9, 32GB, 4G LTE, Mystic Silver

AED 2,999 AED 1,289

The Huawei P9 is the new flagship for Huawei. Display diagonal is 5.2 inches, resolution is 1080p, and it’s an IPS LCD panel. It’s the in-house Kirin 955 chipset powering things, a modified version of the Kirin 950 inside the Mate 8. Its octa-core CPU is set at 2.5GHz for the quad-Cortex-A72 cluster and 1.8GHz for the quad-Cortex-A53. There will be two versions – the lower-specced one containing 3GB of RAM and 32 of storage, and the better-equipped one with 4GB and 64GB storage. A microSD slot provides an option for expansion. It’s all about the camera though, the dual setup being the headline feature. Co-developed with German optics specialist Leica, the P9’s rear shooter consists of two 12MP units, one capturing color, the other seeing only black and white. And varying levels of gray, naturally. They work in unison to deliver more detailed shots in good light and significantly reduce noise in low light.

Product Description


The P9 is one of the best looking smartphones available at the moment, with clean lines and smooth edges.

The phone feels like a premium piece of electronics. It’s all-metal body, smooth glass front and slightly-rounded sides are solid and well made – a big step up over last year’s P8. It’s tactile and nice to hold, but the back isn’t too slippery, meaning it’s easier to hold than some other all-metal phones.

The P9 is definitely thin and light enough. It weighs 144g and is only 6.95mm thick, which is almost a full millimetre thinner than the 7.9mm-thick Galaxy S7 and 0.15mm thinner than an iPhone 6S.

The 5.2in full HD LCD screen is one of the better displays currently available on a smartphone, with good colour saturation and viewing angles.

Huawei produces its own processor and graphics chips. The P9 has an octa-core Kirin 955 chip, which compares relatively favourably to the current crop of top-of-the-line processors.

Huawei insists on heavily customising the standard Android experience with what it calls Emotion UI (EMUI). The P9 runs EMUI 4.1, which is a little more polished than previous versions, with smoother animations and snappier response, and is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The fingerprint scanner is on the back of the phone below the camera strip. Just tapping the sensor is enough to unlock it if the phone is already awake.

The P9 is the first phone to come with two full resolution cameras on the back. One is a 12-megapixel colour sensor, the other is a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor.

The two work in tandem to boost low-light performance – one recording colour information, the other recording additional light information. The result is very impressive low-light photography, producing images that are balanced without noise that are easily as good as any other smartphone, and perhaps better.

The cameras deliver good detail, good colour balance and offer a variety of interesting modes. One is dynamic software-based aperture adjustment both when taking the photo and after the fact. It’s a cool trick and can produce some stunning photos with bokeh effect – characteristic of shallow depth of field photography using a DSLR.

The monochrome camera can be used on its own for very crisp black and white photos, which is a lot of fun to use and can product stunning images.
