Last year’s collaboration with Huawei to produce the dual-lens camera Huawei P9 Smartphone was met with mixed responses. Some said it was just a gimmick, while others thought it was the best thing to happen to mobile photography. Although its release was not without a little controversy. And then a little more. But I know a number of people who own a P9 and absolutely love it.
It seems Leica, or at least Leica Chairman, Andreas Kaufmann, isn’t quite as pleased with it. In an interview with CBNC, Kaufmann said that it was a “personal dream” to reinvent the smartphone. He wants a “true Leica phone”. He isn’t quite sure if it’s a reality for the company, but it is his personal dream.
