As a refresher, those handsets received a lot of hype and noise as Huawei co-engineered the dual cameras at the back of Huawei P9 and P9 Plus with Leica, the respected high-end German camera brand.

Together, both Huawei and Leica tuned the P9 to be the best camera for stills on a smartphone today. Dubbed as the "Leica in your pocket" or the "Point and shoot killer", Huawei and Leica used a dual f/2.2 13 MP Summarit lenses here, an RGB that registers accurate colors of the scenes and a Monochrome lens for black and whites / sharpness.

That makes it a great deal considering that the SRP of the P9 series were priced much higher in European countries.
