New Huawei P Smart 2020 Specifications Unveiled

It seems that the latest Huawei handset has gone live in Holland, and the rest of Europe is set to follow shortly.

Thanks to these first sales the spec of the handset has been released on the Dutch retailer site giving us a chance to see what it is all about. As you would expect for a handset with a P Smart moniker this is an entry level handset, but it still packs a reasonable punch for the price, and we think it is going to be in high demand.

The Huawei P Smart 2020

The handset features a 6.21-inch LCD screen, which puts it in a popular size category especially for those who like to stream movies and play games online. It has FHD+ and has a pixel resolution of 2340 by 1080 Ensuring that you have the best visual performance when using the phone, watching television or playing games. It is not quite an Infinity screen, as there is a substantial bezel along the bottom, but the front facing camera is a neat water drop notch and the sides of the screen reach right to the edges. 

When you turn the phone over you can see the ergonomically sited fingerprint scanner, and a traffic light stack housing the two camera lenses and the LED flash. The main lens offers you 13 mega pixels, and this works in conjunction with the two mega pixel depth sensor. The front facing camera is 8 megapixels which is not bad either for an entry level offering. 

Under the Hood

The chipset in the new phone was never going to be in dispute, it was always going to be a Kirin, and, in this case, we see a Kirin 710F chipset which means that the handset offers Google Mobile Services (GMS). In terms of onboard storage there is 128GB, with 4GB of RAM and as is typical with the Huawei handsets you have the ability to add more using the microSD card slot. It has a 3400mAh battery and is a wired charging handset with USB type-C connection.

It is expected, although not confirmed. that this handset will ship with Android 9 Pie, but whether that will be upgradeable or not remains to be seen. There will of course be the standard Huawei EMUI 9.1 skin over the top. While it won't set the world on fire, it is a well put together handset that for the average price of 200 pounds certainly does everything you need it to do. 

There is no date set for the Europe launch at the moment, but we know that the handset will come in three colours, black, green and gradient blue. The launched item in Holland also offers a three-month trial free of Huawei music so we can also expect that here too. It does seem that the dispute between her Huawei and Google is not putting users off, and their products continue to be able to use the Android operating system in many cases.
