The presentation ceremony highlighted the dual-camera technology of the mobile phone but gave little details of the other features which come along with it.
Three workships were offered by to the people which attended the event namely How to take a selfie’, ‘How to take the best shot’ and ‘How to take the best fashion shot’.
President of Huawei Consumer Business Group in the Middle East Jiao Jian gave an introduction of the company while Regional Manager of Product Marketing & Training for Huawei in the Middle East George Al Kafrouni spoke about the features (mostly camera) of the two new sets.
“Huawei is excited to give P9 users the best smartphone photography experience by leveraging the unrivalled capabilities of Leica, the leader in the world of imaging for more than 100 years,” said Jian Jiao.
“Consumers around the world use their smartphones to take billions of pictures each year, making photography critical to user experience. P9 users can now capture images with unmatched clarity, richness and authenticity, with a masterfully designed and powerful smartphone that looks and feels incredible,” he said.
Founder of UAE-based Capital D Studios Damouni along with the cell phone’s management also talked about the capabilities of the dual camera technology in the newly launched phones.
The one of the two cameras has a colour lens while the second has a monochrome one. Both work independently to each other in order to capture colour and detail separately, and then combine the results in one shot.
The company claimed that the latest camera design, allowing more light and detail to be captured, the cameras work great in low-light conditions. It also leads to the sharper contrast and better depth of field than more traditional lenses, Huawei claimed.
Apart from the camera technology, the company has upgraded its processors as both P9 and P9 Plus have Kirin 955 (64-bit) Octa-core processor.
The metallic body of the two phones have been given curved edges for better and the sets are slimmer. P9 is 6.95mm while the P9 Plus is 6.98mm thick. In comparison, the iPhone 6s (7.1mm) and the iPhone 6s Plus (7.3mm) look a bit overfed.
