Huawei P9 to be launched in India on August 17

Huawei had officially launched the Huawei P9 along with the P9 Plus at an event in London back in April this year. Both of them come with dual 12 megapixel rear cameras that feature the Leica SUMMARIT lenses and 1.25 micron pixels, which promises brilliant image quality in low-light scenarios.


Huawei India is gearing up to launch the P9 in the country on August 17. The company has started sending out media invites for a press conference in New Delhi for the launch of the flagship smartphone. The conference will be addressed by the CEO of Huawei Consumer Business. He will also discuss about the new product strategy for Huawei and highlight the growth plans for the company in India. We are not sure if the bigger variant, the P9 Plus will make its way to India or not. Lets check out the specifications of the P9 below, in case you have forgotten it.
