Huawei’s phones have been well-regarded for their cameras for the last couple of years — especially since the Huawei P9 became one of the first smartphones to introduce dual-camera setups to the world in partnership with Leica. Huawei brought the same concept to its Honor 8 earlier this year (which launched in the US), and it’s continuing the trend with the Mate 9.

So it’s not surprising that the Mate 9 would be able to put out some fantastic photos. But if you wanted proof before going all-in on the device, here’s a gallery of shots to help you make up your mind…

The Mate 9 went official last week, sporting a 5.9-inch 1080p IPS display, the new built-in-house Kirin 960 octa-core chipset, a Mali-G71 MP8 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 4,000 mAh battery, USB Type-C, and Bluetooth 4.2. The phone lands at 156.9mm x 78.9mm x 7.9mm in size, which is just slightly beefier than the Huawei-made Nexus 6P.

That dual-camera system has a 12MP sensor, and a f/2.2 and a 20MP monochrome sensor, similar to the Huawei P9. There’s also “Hybrid Zoom” feature works a lot like the one on the iPhone 7 Plus. The phone has optical image stabilization and 4K video capture, and on the front side you’ll find a decent sensor as well: 8MP with an aperture of f/1.9.

You should definitely check out the full gallery of shots over on Flickr, but you can find just a few of the best of them below to give you a quick peek:
