Huawei P9

Recently, Huawei officially announced the Huawei P9. The Huawei P9 is the company’s flagship device of 2016 and comes in three models; the simple P9, P9 Plus, and P9 Lite. The Huawei P9  is a very strong competitor in the smartphone market. The hardware and specification of the device are top levels including the brilliant dual camera.

The company took the dual camera premise to a whole new level. This was done by including two Leica-certified modules of equal resolution. The smartphone includes two 12 megapixel cameras with 2.2 aperture. Huawei’s partnership with the company that is known for its high-quality cameras and optics has yielded an amazing camera.

The camera modules work individually to capture the images. One module captures color images while the other shoots in monochrome. Afterwards, the two images are intelligently merged with each other. This produces a photo with combined colors of the regular camera merged with the detailing of a monochrome one.Huawei P9
