Huawei P9 vs Huawei P8: Design and hardware comparison

As we know, Huawei P8 launch happened last year with a good-looking appearance. Although it is simple, stylish and straightforward, P8 still gives a premium feeling for those who hold it in their hands. As for Huawei P9 design, this time the company pays much attention to detail such as “shiny chamfered edges, a rounded rectangle for the fingerprint scanner and the beautiful engineering.” Well, we cannot tell you which one is prettier since they are all pretty. We’ll let you speak your mind.

In terms of Huawei P8 specs and Huawei P9 specs, there are some major similarities and differences you need to know. First of all, both P8 and P9 sport Full HD IPS-NEO LCD displays which have very similar size (5.2 inches and 5.1 inches, respectively), dual SIMs, and 8MP front-facing cameras. For the rest, they are quite different from each other. Specifically, the P8 is powered by a Kirin 930 or a Kirin 935 chipset, 3GB of RAM, 16/64GB of internal storage (expandable up to 128GB), Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OS (upgrade to Marshmallow soon), a 13MP rear shooter, and a 2,680mAh battery. No doubt it is strong to do any task you want, but Huawei P9 is better.

It has been claimed to boast a Kirin 955 processor, said to be even faster than Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chip. Besides, other Huawei P9 specs will probably pack 3/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of ROM (expandable up to 128GB), Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS, a 12MP dual rear cam setup, a 3,000mAh cell, a fingerprint scanner and a USB Type-C port. These features are definitely more advanced than the P8’s. Actually, this is not strange at all because Huawei P9 comes when technology has developed so much. Do you agree?

Huawei P9 vs Huawei P8: Price and available

Since the Huawei P8 release date, it has been priced around $350, a reasonable cost in our opinion. For Huawei P9 price, the device will probably be sold at about $500, but that has not been confirmed by Huawei yet. Anyway, we guess it’s okay if the P9 is more expensive than the P8, for what it can offer us is cool, don’t you think?
