Reinvent Smartphone Photography
Even though Huawei’s P9 features superior software and hardware, it doesn’t compromise on its compact and elegant design.
A Ground Breaking Dual-lens
Huawei’s merging algorithm masterfully processes light captured by this smartphone’s RGB sensor and monochromic sensor for vibrant, crystal-clear images. Complemented by Huawei’s IMAGEsmart 5.0 technology, this smartphone’s 12-MP rear camera has a pixel size of 1.25 micrometre so you can catch professional-grade photos even when it gets dark. A picture-quality algorithm that’s been co-engineered by Leica further adds to contrast in images that have been taken in low-light conditions.
Clear, Fast, Precise Imagery
An in-built dual-core ISP (Image Signal Processor), professional DSP (Digital Signal Processor) and a DSP for depth measurement ensure that images are captured and processed quickly. They also enhance image focusing. Hybrid Focus technology takes it up a notch with added depth, clarity, focus and contrast. While the Kirin 955’s dual-core ISP enhances colour and reduces digital noise, its DSP is dedicated to image post-processing.
A Professional Camera Effect
A professional mode, monochrome mode, wide aperture effect and a host of film modes which help you in achieving your best as a professional photographer. Standard, Vivid and Smooth Colours are but some of film modes you could use for accurate colour reproduction.
