The P9 will be available through Optus, Telstra, Vodafone, Virgin Mobile, JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Leica Boutique and digiDIRECT.
Decked out with an “industry-first dual-camera design that unleashes the power of Leica’s optical lenses”, the P9 sports a dual-lens 12 MP camera with RGB and BW sensors, along with laser-assisted focus.
Sporting a 5.2” full-HD display, the P9 is powered by Huawei’s latest Kirin 955 chipset, runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, using the Huawei Emotion UI 4.1 interface, comes with fingerprint recognition and is equipped with USB Type-C connectivity.
Huawei states a virtual-triple-antenna architecture provides “for robust and seamless connectivity to cellular and Wi-Fi networks”.
“As Australians increasingly rely on their smartphones to capture life’s important events, mobile camera technology needs to keep pace,” Marc Di Giacomo, Huawei Australia head of consumer marketing, commented.
“By leveraging Leica’s market-leading lens technology, the P9 provides mobile photographers with an unmatched experience of clarity, richness and authenticity in a powerful smartphone that looks and feels incredible.”
Sporting a brushed metallic finish, available in titanium grey with 32 GB onboard storage, the P9 will be priced at $799 RRP.
