Huawei has released it’s flagship line of premium smartphones with unique design. They have teamed up with Leica, a leader in imaging, to re-invent smartphone photography. The P-series which include the P9 and P9 Plus have an amazing camera, that could easily be the best in a smartphone.

Huawei claims that the dual-camera design on the P9 “fully unleashes the power of Leica’s optical lenses,” lending precision, detail, and quality to the photos it takes. The two 12-megapixel camera sensors on the back of the phone work together to create one image that captures both natural color and impressive detail, Huawei says. The RGB camera on the P9 focuses on capturing the color in an image, while the monochrome camera snaps up all the detail. The company also boasted about the P9 camera’s low-light performance.

When you use the P9’s camera, Huawei wants you to feel like you’re using one of Leica’s high-end cameras. The UI gives you the choice of three Leica film modes: Standard, Vivid Colors, and Smooth Colors, so you can tweak the image to your liking. Huawei says that each film mode imitates the effects you’d get with a Leica camera. There’s even a monochrome mode, for those who like black and white photography.
