The Huawei P9 Camera
Together with the photography legend Leica, Huawei built their new Flagship what is called “the ultimate camera-phone”, the Huawei P9. Besides it is the best looking Smartphone that Huawei has ever made, it has also a 5.2-inch display and the FHD 1080 x 1920 resolution puts it well behind competing smartphones such as the Galaxy S7.
But the most interesting feature of the P9 is without doubt the dual-lens Leica camera setup . Leica is a powerhouse camera brand that is producing premium and ludicrously expensive cameras, and was the company that popularised 35mm film.
So the camera in the P9is pretty impressive. The dual setup will radically improve low-light performance, so the black-and-white sensor can capture as much as 300% more light than regular smartphone cameras. The only difference between the two cameras in the Phone is that one sensor is set to capture monochrome images, while the other captures the colour spectrum. Besides that each one has an LED flash, a 12-megapixel Sony IMX286 sensor and hybrid autofocus. The front-facing camera has 8 megapixel, so you can achieve clear photos even in low light.
