Huawei P9 Plus specs

5.5-inch IPS screen

Full HD (1920×1080) resolution

Kirin 955 processor

4GB RAM

64GB storage

microSD memory card

3400mAh battery

Huawei P9 Plus vs Huawei P9, what’s the difference?

There’s actually very little difference between the Huawei P9 Plus and the original P9 mobile when it comes to specs. They both pack the same processor, same camera tech and so on, but the P9 Plus does sport a bigger frame, now 162g compared with the 144g P9.

That boost in size means the original P9’s 5.2-inch screen has been blown up to a mighty 5.5-incher (the same size as the OnePlus 3 and Moto G4). However, despite the increased dimensions, it’s pretty much the same IPS display, down to the Full HD resolution.

More internal space also means a bigger battery, so you get a 3400mAh cell packed inside the P9 Plus, compared with the P9’s 3000mAh battery. And finally the P9 Plus only comes in a 64GB model with 4GB of RAM, whereas the original P9 also came in a 32GB and 3GB of RAM flavour.
