Look here: Work with lens profiles in Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, and Camera Raw and here: Supported lenses
Please note that JPEG and RAW profiles differ, and there are a lot more profiles for RAW file format.
And it seams indeed, that your lens is not (yet) supported. You can however create your own profile, if you want. I have never tried it, but I know that the option exists.
Thank you for the response, I took the images in dng format so raw data is there. I guess they haven't added the preset yet. I just wondered if the leica lens was nestled in that sub menu (I know it was a long shot!)
I'll set up my own lens correction profile as suggested, I thought I would pose the question to see if the preset was hidden waway somewhere ( I have only just moved from bridge)

Is the lens profile present in bridge? Would be strange, because I think LR and ACR use the same engine to develop pictures.
Apologies Feierwoon, I have mislead you. I use bridge for my Canon 700D, and have recently used the Huawei P9 to link to Lightroom for when I haven't got the camera.
Being fresh to Lr I wondered if I have overlooked something in the UI. I'll set up a lens profile and hope for an update!
Are you using LR mobile?
Did you create the lens correction profile for the Huawei P9?
the PNGs are quite good: they have no distortion or CA (see below image), so it looks as if these are corrected in the camera already. They are not "real Raw" files straight from the sensor, like Nikon NEF or Canon CS2 files are. To get a proper image, I just decrease the brightness and up the contrast, then save as a jpg. I use -0.1 and +20 in Camera Raw.
Problem is obviously the level of noise because of the small sensor; about 20 times less surface per pixel than e.g. an average 12Mpx APS-C DSLR. That needs to be adjusted for every image to taste depending on the subject, so I'd suggest you'd not put noise reduction in a profile, since it will do more damage than good to pictures that don't need it.
The JPGs out of the camera are a bit blurry and have a lot of JPG Artifacts, most likely because of in-camera noise reduction and sharpening that, as far as I know, cannot be switched off. See below image that compares a JPG and PNG of the same section of a shot of a tree; the lines on the JPG's are blurred with white borders. When you increase the contrast on such a JPG, they become even more visible, ruining your picture. So there is a good reason to use the PNGs and then apply a proper raw converter.
I like the camera though, because it produces the kind of quality that is looks good on web-pages or 4x6" prints. I wouldn't expect more from this sensor size.
DNG or PNG? DNG is a proper RAW file format like NEF or CR2...
