After long weeks of waiting, okraszonych many leaks, rumors and speculation, saw the light of day today smartphones Huawei P9 family. Meet solid proposals for a Chinese manufacturer for 2016 – it is to admire.
Last year was exceptional for Huawei – the company recorded record revenues and smartphones sold sensational. Recall that the Chinese manufacturer shipped more than 100 million copies of their smartphones, of which a big part belonged to the family of flagship proposals Huawei P8 (especially great interest enjoyed the Lite version, accounting for less than 10% of sales). They are presented today successors of these devices have a chance to achieve similar success?
Meet Huawei and P9 P9 Plus
Displays. Full HD with different diagonals
Huawei came to the conclusion that in smartphones, or devices with relatively small displays, higher resolution than Full HD is not needed to do anything. Well, at this moment the only reasonable argument against this thesis is a virtual reality, but for many geeks this is not a game worth the candle, so the Chinese manufacturer certainly did not lose too many customers for such, and not a different decision. Huawei P9 is equipped with a 5.2 inch IPS display with a brightness of 500 nits, while Huawei P9 Plus is slightly larger – has exactly 5.5 inches and is made of AMOLED technology. Considering the comparison of the first model to the iPhone 6s is not difficult to conclude that the Chinese are putting their smartphones as an alternative to Apple products. This is particularly noticeable in the case of a larger version of the flagship, as the supporting technology Force Touch / Touch Press, the equivalent of 3D Touch.
Dual cameras and cooperation with Leica
Huawei for several weeks promoted today's launch with hasztagu #OO that suggested exactly what we knew for a long time – a dual, 12-megapixel camera, which was developed in cooperation with Leica. It is characterized by the light of f / 2.2 and a focal length of 27 mm (equivalent to full frame); pixel size is 1.25 um – so they are relatively large, and this should make it easier to take pictures in difficult lighting conditions (despite the poor aperture). One of the cameras captures only black, white and gray, and the other the whole palette of colors RGB, and their cooperation is to give sharper and more contrasting pictures of a small amount of noise (but you will be. Unfortunately, the presence of two cameras prevented the use of optical image stabilization, a solution for Huawei and Leica should compensate for this lack. the use of hybrid focus – a proprietary technology Huawei – provides P9 exceptional speed, precision and stability of both cameras. it involves focusing using three methodologies of measurement: laser, depth and contrast – automatically selects the , which currently bring the best possible result. Provide manufacturer's sound great, but personally I prefer to wait for our maniacal test.
SoC, RAM, internal memory – solid sets
The heart of Huawei and P9 P9 Plus is a proprietary system Chinese manufacturer – HiSilicon Kirin 955. SoC that consists of ośmiordzeniowego processor (4xCortex-A72 @ 2.5 GHz and 4xCortex-A53 @ 1.8 GHz) and the GPU Mali-T880MP4. This combination provides a very solid performance CPU and GPU performance theoretically average, but at an affordable resolution of the displayed image is not much of a problem. Huawei P9 will be performed in two variants: with 3 GB RAM / 32 GB of internal memory and 4 GB RAM / 64 GB of memory. The variant with a plus offer only the second combination.
Pricing and Availability
At the moment prices for specific models are as follows:
- Huawei P9 3 GB RAM – 599 euros (in Poland, probably 2399 PLN)
- Huawei P9 4GB RAM – 649 euro,
- Huawei P9 Plus – 749 euros.
For starters, both smartphones hit the 29 European and close to the eastern markets – will it have on April 16.
