The Huawei P9 will be in South Africa by June at a recommended retail price of R11,999.
Charlene Munilall – Huawei’s head of consumer business group – said the device will also be available on contract from around R499 per month.
Huawei’s new flagship is the world’s first Leica dual-camera smartphone. The twin cameras “work in tandem to enable users to create images of superior detail, depth, and colour”.
The P9 will feature an aluminium body, 2.5D glass, and diamond-cut edges.
Huawei also unveiled a “P9 Plus” version of the device, which boasts a 5.5-inch Press Touch display and a 3,400mAh battery.
