Huawei P9 design

It has a dual lens. Huawei is keen to stress though is that the camera lenses are flush to the rear casing, Unlike most rival phones the lens sticks out a tad, thereby making the back look a little clumsy.

P9 enhanced model will come in haze gold and ceramic white. The P9 Plus will also feature same, while a different quartz grey colour will be an option.
