Huawei’s flagship P9 smartphone is doing very well in terms of sales, as it turns out. First the Chinese company told us that it managed to ship 2.6 million of the P9 and P9 Plus handsets within the first six weeks of their availability, and now there’s a much bigger milestone to speak of.
Huawei has already sold over 6 million P9 units globally, according to an official release sent to us. This does not mention the P9 Plus, so we assume the number is just for the P9 itself.
The company says its customers are praising the smartphone’s built-in “professional photographic effects” like the “artistic black and white images” and the bokeh effect achievable when using the P9’s dual rear camera arrangement developed in partnership with Leica.
