On the other hand, the Huawei P9 Plus is slimmer but heavier, as it measures 152.3×75.3x7mm and weights 162 grams, but its body was made of metal and on the back, at the top was placed a glass strip that houses the rear camera. Both devices have a fingerprint scanner on the top center of their rear panels.
