Huawei launches new P9 smartphone

Chinese telecommunications equipment and services company Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd has launched its latest flagship smartphone the P9 in Papua New Guinea.

The new smartphone was officially launched in Port Moreby by Minister for Treasury Patrick Pruaitch last night.

Pruaitch congratulated Huawei for introducing this product into the PNG market and meeting the demand of customers.

The Huawei P9 enables you to capture high quality pictures without compromising on the handset’s sleek and compact style.

The P9 offers 3 film mode to ensure images are timeless and have a unique emotional resonance.

Its features include clear, fast and precise imagery, premium metal and ultra slim body with a large, bold and colorful display.

The P9 has long lasting performance and can stay charged for up to two days.

You can enjoy listening to music nonstop for up to 56 hours, 10 minutes recharge and five hours talk time.

Huawei chief executive officer Dennis Hou thanked the operators, distributor and dealers for the support in innovating people's lives with their smart devices.

Huawei started to bring its smartphones into PNG since 2012 by working together with major distributor Digicel PNG Limited.

Hou said their goal is to become the leading smart device player in the world and PNG is an integral part of Huawei's growth strategy.

Meanwhile, head of Digicel Business Gary Cobain said launching the P9 and the introduction of their flagship is important as Digicel is driving smartphones across its markets.

The P9 is selling for K1999 and is available along with Huawei's other smart devices in shops across the country.
