Huawei teased the Philippine release of the P9 Plus just days after it released its flagship P9 model. Touting a co-engineering partnership with Leica to develop a smartphone packed with possibly one of the best cameras in the market, the P9 and P9 Plus are both powered by a 64-bit HUAWEI Kirin 955, Octa-core (4 x 2.5 GHz A72+ 4 x 1.8 GHz A53) and a Mali-T880 MP4 GPU, with 3 GB RAM for the P9 and 4 GB RAM for the P9 Plus. The Leica-engineered main camera is a Dual 12-megapixel rear with OIS and laser focus, while the front camera is 8-megapixels.
With excitement already building around the release of the P9, Huawei took the opportunity to raise the stakes by releasing a teaser for their P9 Plus model on the official Huawei Mobile Philippines Facebook page. Using the taglines “Extraordinary events are about to unfold. Soon.” and “Are you ready for what’s coming?”, it looks like Huawei is preparing an even bigger debut for the P9 Plus. The P9 is priced locally at Php 23,990 and the P9 Plus is priced locally at Php 29,990.
