As the cost of mobiles plummet, manufacturers race to set themselves apart and find ways to keep flagships exorbitantly priced. For a time, it was 1080P displays, OTG, gyroscopes, and Touch-ID, but we’ve come to a point where all of this can be had in the $150-$225 range.

Hoping to keep you clamoring for the latest and greatest, manufacturers are banking on dual-cameras to be the next big draw: the new LG G5 has already been confirmed to have dual-cameras, and it’s been rumored iPhone 7 will carry a dual-camera setup as well.

Not content to stand-by, Huawei’s newest flagship P9 will also carry a dual-camera setup.

The main camera module will be 12MP with laser-autofocus, and optical image stabilization (OIS) which makes this the first mobile dual-camera setup with OIS.

It hasn’t been confirmed exactly how the two lenses will work together, but a couple of possible applications are 3D video and simulated depth-of-field (DOF), or ultra-HiRes digital zoom. Another possibility is having different fields of view: eg, one camera with 24mm for landscape shots, and the other 50mm for portraits.

Known specifications of the Huawei P9

  • SoC: Huawei in-house Kirin 950
  • RAM: 3GB
  • ROM: 32GB
  • Display: 5.2″@1080P
  • Battery: 3000mAh
  • Front camera: 5MP
  • Depth: 6.44mm
  • OS: Android 6.0 Marshmallow

We like that Huawei is releasing this flagship with a 5.2″ display, but those who prefer something bigger: don’t fret, as there’s a Huawei P9 Max with a bigger display and higher-spec SoC.

For those who aren’t looking to spend $600-800 on a new phone, there will a Huawei P9 Lite as well.
