Huawei has upped their smartphone game with the release of three fabulous new P-series smartphones.

One of the most exciting features about the P9 series is the camera. Huawei has teamed up with iconic camera brand Leica to create an outstanding dual lens camera. 'Leica and Huawei share an uncompromising commitment to imaging excellence, and our partnership will put outstanding photography into the hands of more consumers around the world,' said Oliver Kaltner, CEO, Leica. 

However, it's not just the camera that's worth singing about. Here's a quick rundown of what you need to know about each of the devices. 

Huawei P9 

The 5.2-inch smartphone has a great camera, beautiful design, fast performance and long-lasting battery life.

Huawei P9 Plus 

The larger 5.5-inch P9 Plus will appeal to phablet fans who prefer a bigger screen. Like the Huawei P9, it has an awesome camera, great looks and performance. The larger size of the P9 Plus means there's room for front-facing stereo speakers.
