It’s got a camera co-engineered with the world’s most foremost camera gurus. And it then pairs this with top-notch specs and a next-gen processor.
The P9 has a lot going for it that other phones just can’t hope to match. For starters, it’s got a next-gen twin camera system co-engineered with Leica. And the icing on the cake is that it gives you fantastic performance at the same time. Refuse to compromise and insist on getting the best of everything? Look no further than the P9.
Leica bit ‘o magic?
We just can’t stress this enough. The P9’s camera will change how you view smartphones. It’s co-engineered with Leica, and you get a unique twin-camera system that’s tuned perfectly. You get twin 12MP sensors at the back, with one of them weaving its magic in monochrome.
So, you not only get a lot more light coming in (say hello to noise-free low-light shots), you also get to take real black-and-white photos that look, for want of a better word, delicious! Smooth gradations, a wide dynamic range and absolute sharpness - that’s what you’ll get from the P9. And there really isn’t any other smartphone that could boast of this.
Mode in heaven
The P9’s camera system is smart, very smart. You get plenty of cool modes like light painting, but there’s other stuff you must check out - the Leica film mode, which makes your photos appear similar to those shot by Leica’s famous film cameras, and the full manual mode. Aperture, exposure, focus, and ISO - it’s all yours to tweak and change just the way you want to - and yup, you get to shoot in RAW. (That sound you just heard was that of the competition sighing in resignation).
Want to know what else is there in the P9’s cameras? Hybrid focus, which uses a combination of laser and depth sensing and contrast detection to make sure you’re locked on to your subject before anyone else. And finally, what really seals the deal (the competition should just pack its bags and head home. It’s over, folks) is the P9’s ImageSmart tech and Picture Quality Algorithm, which crunches every image to make sure it comes out the way it should. Entering a photo competition? The P9 might be all the gear you need.
Hard rockin’ hardware
But there’s so much more to the P9 that we’re wondering where to begin. You see, the Leica camera might be its USP - something no other flagship smartphone can match - but the P9 also comes with top-notch specs.
There’s a virtual Triple antenna system which gives you fantastic download speeds even as everyone around you complains of poor network reception; there’s a novel Wi-Fi ranking system which automatically chooses the best wireless network around you; there's an enhanced fingerprint sensor that doesn’t just keep your data safe, but also saves you a lot of time whenever you pick up your phone; and, of course, let’s not forget the crisp, vibrant Full HD display and the metal alloy body.
Finally, we must mention the 64-bit octa-core Kirin 955 processor that powers the P9. It’s fast, efficient, runs cool and has fantastic graphics abilities So you get a proper flagship device that’s great for multitaskers and gamers - something that’s even more certain when you factor in the 3GB RAM you get.
Let’s see if we got that right. The P9 gives you top-notch specs? Check. It’s got a speedy processor? Check. All the features you expect from a flagship? Check. And it’s got a camera better than anyone else? Check! Quite the all-rounder, isn’t it?
