Huawei P9 Leica camera setup is made by Sunny Optical Technology

A key feature of the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus is their dual-camera setup, featuring Leica-certified optics. Recent information regarding the two cameras reveal they are made by Sunny Optical Technology of China, which is a camera manufacturer authorized by Leica.

This is the first time the Germany-based Leica is cooperating with a Chinese OEM. If this first endeavor proves successful, it’s quite possible to see more Leica camera tech in future smartphones.
