The Huawei P9 has now gone on-sale in Australia with Vodafone first out of the gate offering a great deal on a Huawei Watch as a bonus when you order the handset. Optus too is carrying the P9 and is offering the Huawei Watch as a bonus when you sign up to any My Plan Plus or My Plan Business plan while stocks last.

The Huawei P9 is a very nice handset, with a metal unibody design that’s comfortable to hold, with a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. The 5.2″ FullHD display is covered in 2.5D curved glass and looks amazingly good. The star of the show is of course the dual-lens 12MP sensor on the rear which was engineered with camera and lens maker Leica.

The Huawei P9 review will be coming soon, but having used it for a week, and used the P8 extensively last year this phone has some very, very good hardware. Full specs on the Huawei P9:

The Huawei Watch is of course fairly well known having been on the market for some time. Our review of the watch is live and as a regular user, it’s worth the effort to check out.

The Optus deal with the P9 + Huawei Watch is now live on the Optus website, with plans for the Huawei P9 starting at $52 per month ($40 Plan + $12 Handset repayment) with 1GB (500MB + 500MB) of data per month and ranging up to $120 per month which includes 20GB of data as well as all the usual calls to landlines and mobiles in Australia. For full details of the plans, head to the Optus website, but as an overview you’re looking at:
