We got a preview of this beautiful Huawei ad at the launch of the P9 in London, and now it appears the full version is about to roll out as expected in the next few days. @SophieLinYF shared these new pics/caps of Henry during the filming of the commercial in Shanghai (he also shot part of it in New Zealand). They were posted on a Chinese site that talks about Henry's visit to a Chinese night market where it was filmed (we'll try and get it translated, he was super nice).
UPDATE: Translation by Kat (@super_merLUNA) is in. Thank you so much.
Superman landed in Chinese night market - went into 'super' eating mode.
Recently, Hollywood's Superman actor, Henry Cavill flew into the streets of a Chinese night market. Like a kid, Henry couldn't contain his excitement while he walked the street, feasting on the local delights like steamed dumplings, lobster spicy soup, also at times, taking out his phone taking pics, chatting & being very friendly with his crew. Henry was handsomely clad in a black suit with a bow tie exuding a gentlemen's aura even when walking the streets, makes you feel as though you are at a Hollywood set in Chinatown. One fan quipped online: so, Superman loves eating meat on skewers when he's not flying. Henry Cavill went from stall to stall, smiles and look of surprises throughout. He would also whip out his phone and took pics with the chefs of the stalls. You could sense he was very excited. At one point, at a ramen stall, Henry Cavill lifted his 'hormones-filled' arms taking some selfies. Henry Cavill seemed to have gotten lost a little as he walked the streets, pointing and asking for directions along the way. But it didn't stop him from taking pics of the local delights, seemingly sharing them with his friends & family. He flashed his mesmerizing Superman smile especially when he was taking selfies with the steamed dumplings & ramen. Another fan jokingly commented: if Superman can't fly, it definitely started from today's night market. Be careful, you won't be able to fly if you put on too much weight! As Henry Cavill happily enjoying his time there, he chanced upon some excited fans. Obviously in a good mood, he initiated conversation with the fans & showed them pics he took earlier, which led a female fan to excitedly proclaim: Wow, it's Superman."

Ad Age explained a bit more about the story it follows:
The ad looks to be highlighting the quality photographic capabilities of the P9 and P9 Plus. The phones, which aimed at competing with both Samsung and Apple, feature two 12-megapixel cameras, one dedicated to color and the other to black and white shots. In the ad, Cavill represents monochrome and Johansson represents color.
