Four months after its international debut, the Huawei P9 has made its way to India. The phone will be available in Titanium Grey, Mystic Silver, and Prestige Gold color options, and will go up for sale starting later today for ₹39,999 ($600).
Since its launch, Huawei has sold over 4.5 million units of the P9. The highlight of the phone is the dual 12MP camera arrangement at the back, with the lenses certified by Leica. Huawei is also offering two-year warranty for the P9, which includes fixing any display damages for up to three months following the purchase of the phone. Here's what's on offer:
|Display||5.2-inch IPS LCD, 1920x1080|
|Processor||Octa-core Kirin 955
Four Cortex A72 cores + Four Cortex A53 cores
|Storage/RAM||32GB/3GB or 64GB/4GB|
|OS||Android 6.0 with EMUI 4.1|
|Rear cameras||Dual 12MP (monochrome + color), f/2.2
1.76-micron pixel equivalent
|SIM/SD||Dual SIM with hybrid microSD slot|
|Dimensions||145 x 70.9 x 6.95mm|
|Other||Infrared, stereo speakers|
Huawei has been uncharacteristically late in bringing the P9 to India, which will undoubtedly hurt the brand. With the Galaxy Note 7 going up for sale in two weeks' time and mid-range phones like the OnePlus 3 available for ₹27,999 and the ZenFone 3 series making its debut later today, Huawei will face an uphill battle to convince buyers to go for the P9.
