Huawei P9 debuts with dual Leica-certified cameras

Huawei has announced its new pair of flagship smartphones, the P9 and P9 Plus, in London today, and just as was predicted a few weeks ago, they feature cameras developed in collaboration with Leica.

Huawei P9 poses for an unofficial photoshoot

Huawei is definitely in the big leagues. It is now experiencing what Sony was once notorious for: not being able to keep any of its flagships under wraps. The Huawei P9, which has yet to see the light of day, is probably the company's wost kept secret now, having most of its specs leaked in their entirety just recently.

But now even, or perhaps especially, rising stars like Huawei are getting their fair share. Take for example this batch of photos of the Huawei P9, which practically reveals everything interesting about the smartphone ahead of MWC 2016.
