Now atleast we have this much information to see how the Huawei P9 stack up against it’s predecessor P8.
Design & Build: The P8 as we said above is one of the most impressive good-looking smartphone of 2015. The P9 is similarly flounce-free, but this time company has given great attention to details. The device will feature a all-metal body with a rounded rectangle fingerprint sensor on the rear side. And to make the charging faster, Huawei embed a USB Type-C port along with a speaker grill and headphone socket.
- Huawei P9: 6.44mm thickness
- Huawei P8: 144.9 x 72.1 x 6.4mm, 144g
On the rear of P8 theres’ a 13MP snapper which packs a dual-LED flash, it’s a pretty decent camera. The P9 on the other hand is rumored to come with a 12MP dual camera sensor which we expect will deliver more DSLR-style images.
