The highlight of the Huawei P9 are the Leica cameras, a dual lens setup which features the world’s first 4-colour RGBW Sensor. One of the cameras uses an RGB Sensor while the other is a Monochrome Sensor, thus ensuring better low light images. Adding to this, is the laser focus placed below the Dual LED Flash.
