Huawei’s all new flagship smartphone, the Huawei P9 is now available to pre-order in Thailand.
Huawei officially launched the P9 at the Thailand Mobile Expo, which is being held until Sunday 22nd May at the Queen Sirikit Convention Centre in Bangkok.
The Huawei P9 is available to pre-order at the event and at Huawei stores throughout Thailand until May 31st, before the device is released on general sale in early June.
Pre-orders require a 2,000 baht deposit with Huawei giving away a Leica case worth 1,990 baht and a 128GB MicroSD card worth 2,190 baht to anyone who reserves a P9.
The phone is particularly interesting thanks to its dual lens which is the first of its kind. The lens allows users to refocus pictures after they have been taken thanks to Huawei teaming up with German camera manufacturer Leica.
The two firms had collaborated before with the Honor 6 Plus but the version available on P9 is far superior to the previous endeavours and produces higher quality, 12 megapixel images.
The unique dual lens gives users the opportunity to focus in on different aspects of the same photograph after the picture has been taken.
The standard device also has a number of other attractive features such as 5.2 inch display, 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of internal storage.
There is also a 4GB RAM/64GB ROM version. Both version can use a MicroSD card to increase storage is so required.
A 128GB version will be available in China but at this point there are no plans to release this model worldwide.
The P9 runs Android Marshmallow and is powered by Huawei’s Octa-core Kirin 955 processor and has a 3000mAh battery that will keep the phone running for 1.15 days when used heavily or 1.6 days of normal use.
The P9 is available in white, grey and three variants of gold although it is unclear at this stage if all three variants will be available in Thailand.
