Today we’re going to talk about the Huawei P8 device, which was released in April 2015 and its successor, the Huawei P9 flagship that’s expected to be released by the end of this month and which comes with an impressive dual camera on its back.
The Huawei P8 measures 144.9×72.1×6.4mm and weights 144 grams. On the other hand, the Huawei P9 is thicker, as it measures 145×70.9x7mm, but it has the same weight. Their designs are almost identical, meaning that they have a metal body with a horizontal strip at the top of their back, where the rear camera is located, only that the new model has also a fingerprint scanner under the strip, right in the middle.
The Huawei P8 handset has an IPS-NEO LCD display of 5.2-inch that supports a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 424 ppi and it’s protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Huawei P9 has the same display size and resolution, but it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4.
