mcbzultra, 29 Apr 2016The gpu on the P9 is different from P8. Seemingly the cause of poorer performance on the P8. What about the nexus 5x vs p8
BASHIER4, 29 Apr 2016Is it much of an improvementAfter investigation the P8 gpu/soc is manufactured using 28nm process technology. The P9 is manufactured using 16nm technology

mcbzultra, 29 Apr 2016I'd say P9.. The Kirin chip is improved in the P9 (better gpu)... My cash will be going on P9 plus!Is it much of an improvement

This is the statement released jointly by Huawei and Leica.
In February, Huawei and Leica announced a long-term strategic partnership. The camera function is the most used smartphone application and our aim is to bring it up to the high standards demanded by the Leica product philosophy. Leica brings to the cooperation their expertise gathered from decades of experience in optical engineering and optical design. The collaboration between Huawei and Leica aims to deliver the best possible picture quality in the smartphone segment.
Both companies have been working closely to co-engineer HuaweiÂ’s recently launched premium smartphone Â– the P9 Â– based on innovation and excellent craftsmanship.
The camera module of the P9 series and the achievable picture quality is the result of the intensive technological collaboration between Huawei and Leica. Leica has been deeply involved in the development of the camera-module of the P9 and P9 Plus. Our joint objective was to achieve the best possible image results and optical imaging performance in order to provide consumers in the smartphone photography segment with the best possible picture quality. The result raises smartphone photography to an entirely new level.
Our co-engineering is deeply embedded in the product and LeicaÂ’s contribution has involved:
Collaborative development, evaluation and optimization of optical design (lens calculation) in compliance with Leica standards.
Collaborative development of the mechanical construction of the camera module to reduce stray light effects (Â“ghost and flareÂ”).
Definition of imaging quality in terms of color rendition/color fidelity, white balance, stray light reduction (Â“ghost & flare effectsÂ”), exposure precision, dynamic range, sharpness and noise characteristics.
Processing of image data with the aid of long-standing Leica optical and signal processing expertise.
Definition of the most stringent common quality standards and production requirements for serial production by Huawei to ensure consistently high quality.
LeicaÂ’s globally recognized expertise is based to a large extent on the ability to guarantee the narrowest tolerances on the market. This justifiable claim to excellence is naturally also an integral component of the technology partnership and is implemented in HuaweiÂ’s production processes of the P9 camera module to ensure uncompromising quality.
Other companies have collaborated to produce an improved product.. Nokia/Microsoft and Carl Zeiss.. I don't recall any suggestions that they were lying. I feel it's unlikely that a very high quality brand like Leica would allow their name to be attached to any product that would diminish or tarnish their high reputation.

Tcool, 28 Apr 2016No FM radio...Video Recording is low compared to other flagships
No Water Resistance
No Wireless Charging
No Stereo Speaker
No Apple logo but that is a good thing because otherwise this would cost $700
denzab, 27 Apr 2016This is a new addition. Can't wait to have it....soon.Already have one... it is really superb! Love it!

Huawei claims the P9Â’s cameras let in a whole lot more light than competing phone cameras, saying the figure is a massive 270 percent more than the iPhone 6S and 90 percent more than the Galaxy S7. That means shots taken in low light Â— whether thatÂ’s at dusk, in a dark room, or outside at night Â— should look great.

Other than this, nothing special in their smartphone.
