Huawei Mate 9 takes on the iPhone 7 Plus with powerful dual cameras

Mashable


Back in April, five months before the iPhone 7 launch, Huawei launched a phone with dual rear, 12-megapixel cameras, the Huawei P9.

Huawei's approach turned out to be different than Apple's -- instead of focusing on zoom, its secondary camera only took monochrome photos that were combined with the other camera's color photos for enhanced sharpness and details.

Now, at an event in Munich, the company showed the evolution of that concept with its new phablet flagship, the Huawei Mate 9. The 5.9-inch phone has a dual rear camera with the main sensor taking 12-megapixel color photos, which are then combined with the monochrome photo taken by the other, 20-megapixel rear camera.
