The smartphone for photographers.

If you love photography, you need this phone.

The Huawei P9 features two high-quality Leica lenses and two separate sensors. The first lens and sensor capture regular images, while the second set shoots in black and white. A special algorithm then combines everything, creating extra-detailed, ultra-vibrant photos. A special laser helps the lenses focus, and each one has a fast aperture for shooting in low light, the ability to capture RAW images, and a manual mode for complete creative control.

The phones start shipping to Asia and Europe on April 16, and later this summer to the U.S.
