Huawei P9 Plus Announced: An Upsized P9, Still w/ Leica Optics

Apart from the P9, Huawei has also announced a bigger version of it dubbed as the P9 Plus.


Basically, Huawei bumped up the screen size to 5.5-inches from the 5.2-inches of the standard P9. Resolution is the same at Full HD or 1920 x 1080 pixels but it’s pressure sensitive, something similar to the 3D Touch of the iPhone 6S, called Press Touch. The processor is Kirin 955 running at a maximum clock speed of 2.5GHz paired with 4GB of RAM. Storage is very spacious at 64GB.



Since it’s a P9, it still has the dual-lens setup co-developed with Leica. We have a dual 12-megapixel sensor at the back which has a pretty complex technology that should level up mobile photography including an RGB and a monochrome setup, hybrid autofocus, and a 6-piece optics. Although, the front-facing camera gets an upgrade to an autofocus system and an f/1.9 aperture.


Being a larger device, the P9 Plus have a bigger 3,400mAh battery plus a dual-IC Rapid Charge tech through it’s USB Type-C port. Also, Huawei added an IR blaster on top.

    The social media link on the left side of the screen is really annoying. Nawawalan ako ng gana magbasa ng website ninyi

  3. 40K and no 4K video recording. Pa-iPhone 6 lang ang peg? Must be the chipsets fault. Its a must for a flagship device.

      Who consumes 4k on a daily basis anyway? Upload mo sa social media idodowngrade din. I play mo sa tv, 4k ba tv mo? Sa small screen naman mapapansin mo pa ba kung full HD or 4k? No reason for 4k bro unless you’re a serious professional videographer. Just my opinion.
