They say the best camera is the one you have with you. So, why not get a good camera phone?
Tomorrow could be that day! On June 11 and 12, the first 200 customers of the Huawei Concept Store in the SM Mall of Asia can get up to 20% off on the Huawei P9 when they trade-in their old working or non-working cameras. That’s a huge discount for an old camera you may have lying around collecting dust. Buyers also get freebies like a Gouche bag, a 13,000 mAh powerbank and a VIP service card.
Leica-Powered Huawei P9
The Huawei P9 caused quite a stir when it was announced because of its dual Leica-certified 13MP main cameras. The idea is that more light can be captured by these sensors (one is monochrome, while the other RGB). The phone uses a merging algorithm which intelligently combines the colours taken by the RGB sensor with the detail of the monochrome sensor.
Under the hood, you’ll find an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 955 processor, a Mali-T880 MP4 graphics chip, and up to 4GB of RAM. There are two storage options, 32GB and 64GB, and a microSD card slot that supports up to 256GB via the second SIM slot. The rest of the specs include a NFC, a fingerprint sensor, a USB Type-C port, and a 3,000mAh battery.
The Huawei P9 retails for P23,990.
