Huawei seems to rush towards the upper echelons of Mobile phones. They have released a number of mobile phones that really entice the crowd.
They’ve just released their new flagship phone in the form of the P9 and the company doesn’t want to stop there. They’ve probably wanted ala Apple scheme and they’ve now released a little bit of an upgrade to the P9.
Today, we are going to talk about the Huawei P9 Plus. This is the supposed big brother of the P9 and it aims to improve some of the areas of its smaller counterpart.
Although the Huawei P9 Plus is a little bit bigger having a 5.5-inch display, the company managed to make the bezels as thin as possible to not only preserve the screen real estate but also highlight the phone itself.
The Huawei P9 Plus is also light as it only weighs 162 grams. You can pretty much handle the phone with one hand.
This mobile phone is also constructed with a ceramic glass and it also has a metal frame. Personally, I’ve never encountered a phone that is made of ceramic glass but it looks absolutely beautiful. Furthermore, the metallic rim actually adds to the premium overall look of the phone.
The display is a little bit better than its smaller brother. The Huawei P9 Plus is equipped with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED display. The P9 only has an IPS display, although it is pretty good, the Super AMOLED just has better color saturation and contrast.
The only problem I have with the screen, and it sucks to say this, is that the Huawei P9 Plus only comes with a Full HD resolution screen. Since this was supposed to be an upgrade over the P9, I am kind of disappointed that the screen resolution is only a measly 1080p in a market that is already saturated with 1440p screens.
The Chinese company also makes use of China-made components such as the Kirin 955 processor. It is a 64-bit octa-core processor that literally blazes through every application you throw at it.
The Kirin 955 processor is also accompanied by the Mali-T880 MP4 GPU and 4GB of RAM. Benchmark scores are phenomenal and it just sits below the Samsung Galaxy S7.
The Huawei P9 Plus is also equipped with a handy and sensitive fingerprint scanner. The Fingerprint scanner is situated just below the phone’s cameras at the back.
It can be used to unlock the phone and it can also be used with a number of applications. If you’re using Google Pay, for example, you can use the fingerprint scanner to authorize your access.
Aside from the impressive specs, there is another area where the Huawei P9 Plus excels and that is the camera. The Chinese mobile phone company teamed up with a German photography group called Leica.
The Huawei P9 Plus comes with 2 Leica Lenses at the back and it works in their own separate way to produce high-quality images. Just like the P9, the P9 Plus has one camera that is in charge with the color and one monochrome lens for the blacks and the whites. The result is a visually stunning image each and every time.
The Huawei P9 Plus is a worthy little upgrade for people who want a bigger phone with a bigger display and impressive specs. If you’re looking for a new phone, the Huawei P9 Plus is a worthy choice.
