Huawei P9 price and release date: where can I get it?

Get your hands on the double-camera marvel

Huawei has launched its latest flagship handset - the cannily-named Huawei P9 - with dual cameras to help you take great black and white photos.

There's also the larger P9 Plus phablet in the mix too, which offers a larger battery, amount of RAM and screen, but it's arriving later and not all the networks will be stocking it.

It's not landing in stores, but who's actually offering it? Luckily, we've got the answers.

Huawei

The Chinese phone giant has its own online store, slightly confusingly called vMall, and the Huawei P9 is available to pre-order right now for £449 SIM Free - we're not sure why it doesn't have stock like some of the other retailers and networks, but no doubt it'll arrive soon.

Carphone Warehouse

Carphone Warehouse has stock of the Huawei P9 with deals starting at £28 per month with a free handset and going all the way up to £47. You can also grab it SIM free for £449.99.

There's a wide range of tariffs on offer from EE, Vodafone, iD and O2.

Vodafone

Vodafone was first in with the info for the Huawei P9 price and release date, and it's getting the P9 Plus later on too!

For now, you can buy the Huawei P9 on a Vodafone for £10 up front and £28 each month giving unlimited texts, unlimited minutes and 1GB of data.

O2

O2 has the Huawei P9 for sale on its website with it's highlighted offer requiring no payment up front, and £33 each month for two years.

There's also the option to get the P9 on PAYG, which will set you back £369.99 up front.

EE

EE still has the Huawei P9 in stock. Contracts start at £30.99 per month if you don't want to pay anything upfront, and that will get you 1GB of data, 500 minutes and unlimited texts.

Three

Fancy getting the Huawei P9 on Three? Well you're in luck as it's also selling the handset. You can't get the P9 for free upfront, you'll need to part with at least £29, but pair that with a £31 per month payment and you'll get 4GB of data and unlimited calls and texts.

giffgaff

If you'd rather trust a more customer centric network then check out giffgaff, which has the Huawei P9 in stock. You can buy it out-right for £369 or opt for a contract with upfront prices starting at £25 and a monthly outlay of £32.06 in return for 4GB of data, 1000 minutes and unlimited texts.

Online retailers

Looking for a SIM-only P9? Well Clove has the handset available for £460 with no tie to any network - although it's only available for pre-order at the moment.
