Huawei P9 and P9 Plus flagships have been introduced during the company’s press event in London yesterday. These are the two new flagship smartphones which sport two 12-megapixel cameras on the back with Leica’s imaging technology. We already have plenty of coverage on our site, and first camera samples have surfaced earlier today. That being said, Huawei did announce that the two devices will go on sale on April 16th in 29 countries all over the world, UK included. Well, a first UK-based carrier is now offering the P9 for pre-order, read on.
Vodafone UK reached out to let us know that the Huawei P9 (not P9 Plus) is available for pre-order. The Grey variant of the device can be pre-ordered from the carrier (Silver one will be available for a pre-order starting April 11th), and if you pre-order it, you’ll also get some free goodies. Vodafone UK is going to throw in Huawei’s W1 Classic Smartwatch with a leather strap in for free, the watch is worth £289 on its own. That’s not all though, you’ll also get a flip case for the Huawei P9, free of charge as well. One thing to keep in mind here, is the fact that this is the 3GB of RAM + 32GB of internal storage variant of the device, the 4GB RAM variant is not available at Vodafone it seems. You can pre-order the Huawei P9 on a Vodafone Red 2GB Bundle for £30 per month, and you’ll get unlimited texts, minutes and 2GB of data. You can also opt for the Vodafone Red Value 4GB Bundle which will cost you £35 per month, and you’ll get unlimited texts, minutes and 4GB of data. If you opt for the Vodafone Red Value, you’ll also get a 6-month free access to Sky Sports Mobile TV, Spotify Premium or a NOW TV Entertainment Pass
The Huawei P9 is the smaller of the two flagships announced by the company yesterday. The P9 sports a 5.2-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, 3GB / 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage. The device is fueled by the Kirin 955 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it sports a 3,000mAh battery. Two 12-megapixel shooters are available on the back of this device, and Android Marshmallow comes pre-installed with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 4.1 on top of it.
