Huawei P9 Deluxe Available for Pre-order from Today

From 12 noon today, you will be able to pre-order the Huawei P9 Deluxe (S$888) from Lazada Singapore. The main difference between the standard Huawei P9 and P9 Deluxe is the RAM and storage size. With 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage, I believe it is one of the higher range for most mobile phones.

Other differences include the Haze Gold finish finish (only the P9 Deluxe comes in this color), with the use of techniques including brushed hairlines and metal polishing at micron-level precision to create a translucent metal surface.

Why you should pre-order the Huawei P9 Deluxe now

If you pre-order the Huawei P9 Deluxe at Lazada.sg, you can get an exclusive Leica leather phone case (available while stocks last). And when I visited the Pre-order website, I saw that they are offering a free pair of X-mini Evolve headphones (again, while stock last) on top of the Leica leather phone case. Wow!!

I think these two freebies should entice you to pre-order now.

How to Get Huawei P9 Plus

If you can wait, and don’t mind a slightly bigger handset (5.5-inch), you can get the Huawei P9 Plus. It will be available from late June 2016 at S$998.

Here is an excerpt of what the P9 Plus features: –

Huawei is also unveiling the P9 Plus, featuring a 5.5-inch Press Touch display and a larger 3,400mAh battery. The P9 Plus also offers dual-IC Rapid Charge, giving users six hours of talk time after a 10-minute charge.

 

However, if you don’t need the P9 Deluxe or the P9 Plus, you can get the Huawei P9 now at Huawei Flagship Store (Plaza Singapura), all telecommunication outlets and selected of the Telecommunication’s Exclusive Partner store for S$768.

Huawei P9 Sports Dual Camera Lens, Reinvents Smartphone Photography in Collaboration with Leica

New Huawei Flagship Device Combines Groundbreaking Innovation and Exceptional Design, Setting a New Standard in Smartphone Photography

Singapore – May 5, 2016 – Huawei Consumer Business Group today launched the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus, the first smartphones co-engineered with the global iconic brand, Leica Camera AG. The P9’s dual-lens camera takes smartphone photography to the next level, allowing people to capture both vivid colors, as well as striking black and white images.

“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 Richard Yu, CEO, Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Consumers around the world use their smartphones to take billions of pictures each year, making photography critical to the 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.”

Reinventing Smartphone Photography
Integrating the design values and engineering excellence of both Huawei and Leica in a smartphone photography system co-engineered by the two companies, the P9 brings together best-in-class hardware and software, from optical lenses and sensors, to image processing algorithms, empowering users to capture the highest-quality images.

Key to the P9’s superlative imaging capabilities is a dual-camera design that fully unleashes the power of Leica’s optical lenses, renowned for precision and attention to detail, and subject to the industry’s most stringent quality screening requirements. The RGB camera on the P9 specializes in capturing color, while the monochrome camera is outstanding at acquiring picture detail. The two rear cameras of the P9 work in tandem to enable users to create images of superior detail, depth and color. The P9 truly excels in low-light conditions, as the dual-camera design guarantees that more light and detail can be captured.

Each picture taken by the P9 carries the unique emotional resonance and timelessness that are the hallmarks of Leica, as users may choose between three film modes: Standard, Vivid Colors, and Smooth Colors, depending on their personal preferences. With meticulous calibration of the P9’s camera parameters, each film mode faithfully renders the authentic color and style of Leica. By selecting the monochrome mode, P9 users can use their devices as a true monochrome camera to capture powerful and evocative black-and-white images of superior quality.

Deploying Huawei’s Hybrid Focus technology, the P9 captures images with superior speed, accuracy and stability. The P9 supports camera focusing based on three methodologies – laser, depth calculation, and contrast – and automatically selects the one that yields the best result in any given environment.

The wide-aperture photography feature on the P9 allows users to experiment with innovative visual effects to create unique images and content. The P9 makes it easy to adjust the camera aperture to create bokeh and other depth-of-field effects, while keeping the main object in sharp focus.

“Leica and Huawei share an uncompromising commitment to imaging excellence, and our partnership will put outstanding photography into the hands of more consumers around the world,” said Oliver Kaltner, CEO, Leica Camera AG. “We are deepening our collaboration to give users a more optimal smartphone photography experience.”

Taking Industrial Design to a Higher Level

The P9 is a masterpiece of state-of the-art industrial design, with the same minimalist design DNA as earlier products in Huawei’s acclaimed flagship P-series premium smartphones. Each P9 device is a perfect construct of superior-grade 2.5D glass and an aerospace-class aluminum, with diamond-cut edges rounded out by carefully balanced curvatures.

The 64GB version of the P9 comes in a stunning and unique Haze Gold finish, setting new industry standards in industrial design, with the use of techniques including brushed hairlines and metal polishing at micron-level precision to create a translucent metal surface. The 32GB version comes in Mystic Silver, Titanium Grey and Prestige Gold, offering a myriad of choices to consumers.

Power and Performance

The P9 is equipped with the power, connectivity and speed that today’s high-end smartphone user expects from Huawei. With a 5.2-inch 1080p display, the P9 is powered by the new Kirin 955 2.5GHz 64-bit ARM-based processor for class-leading mobile performance. The 3,000mAh high-density battery offers P9 users outstanding mobility and battery life.

Huawei is also unveiling the P9 Plus, featuring a 5.5-inch Press Touch display and a larger 3,400mAh battery. The P9 Plus also offers dual-IC Rapid Charge, giving users six hours of talk time after a 10-minute charge.

Leveraging Huawei’s industry-leading capabilities in telecommunications, the P9 and P9 Plus offer unrivaled new features including a virtual-triple-antenna architecture, designed for users who need robust and seamless connectivity to cellular and Wi-Fi networks to fully harness the power of the mobile Internet no matter where they are in the world.

The P9 and P9 Plus also protect users’ privacy and information security with Huawei’s world-leading biometric fingerprint recognition technology. The enhanced fingerprint sensor allows users to personalize and safeguard their devices by significantly lowering the possibility of fraudulent or accidental device access, while also ensuring users can quickly and securely access their smartphone.

Dedicated After-Sales Care

The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus comes with Huawei HiCare – a first-of-its-kind service specially designed for Huawei’s customers in Singapore. Huawei HiCare offers a suite of premium after-sales services to Huawei customers, as a further commitment from Huawei in unparalleled end-to-end consumer experience.
