Comparing the New Flagships; Huawei P9 Series

Huawei P9 vs Huawei P9 Plus

Huawei has been aiming for the sky with the announcement of their new smartphone series. Intending to dominate the tech industry, Huawei has to deal with some big shots of the game including Samsung, Apple, and LG. However, it can be safely stated that in the last few months, the firm has come up with some compelling devices which offer both elegance and performance. Huawei has been finding the perfect harmony between classy good looks through its metal body finishes and hardcore performance through their Kirin processor series. Perhaps the real standout models of Huawei were either Google’s Nexus 6P or Huawei Mate 8. This year around, Huawei is back with two sturdy flagship devices named Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus which aim to give a tough time to their competition.

Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus come out distinctive from their competition with the dual camera setup that these flagship devices are sporting which enables them to click DSLR quality pictures. Huawei has developed this interesting technology in a collaboration with a firm called Leica.

Huawei’s P9 series is a major upgrade over their predecessor, the P8. The CPU alone has gotten an exponential 100{4b8db105d51fc49c1c727c21ad8f1560ea0d09dcad6eb0845e46ab84b524419d} increase.


In the following segment, we would be reviewing the fundamental differences and similarities between the two variants of the P9 series.

Display Panels

The P9 is the smaller of the two devices boasting a 5.2in display bearing 423ppi; P9 Plus bears a Super AMOLED display with a size of 5.5in and boasts 401ppi. The P9 Plus also comes equipped with a Press Touch display which enables the panel to sense two different levels of pressure.

Storage & RAM

The P9 comes in two variants, one sports 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of Internal Storage whereas the other bears 4 GB of RAM coupled with 64 GB of internal space. P9 Plus has only one variant, the 64 GB one which is coupled with 4 GB of RAM.


Both devices boast the same camera resolution (a dual 12MP camera system on the rear and an 8MP snapper on the front) and are equipped with the same laser autofocus props in the rear camera system (except that the P9 Plus has a laser autofocus system in its front camera panel as well). The devices are similar in the CPU segment as well with both devices bearing Kirin’s 64-bit processors.

Final Verdict

We believe that the smaller P9 is much more pocket-friendly, however if carrying a big device is not a hassle, then P9 Plus with its significant differences is the way to go.
