At its presentation, Huawei not only boasted of its successes in the Ukrainian market, but also introduced a new smartphone - Huawei P Smart. Twin brother of Chinese Enjoy 7S will appear in our stores in early February.
What kind of beast?
The main chip Huawei P Smart was 5.65-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9. The heart of the device was the company's eight-core chipset Kirin 659 with a frequency of 2.36 GHz, RAM 3 gigabytes, built-in - 32 gigabytes with the ability to expand microSD cards (only instead of the second SIM). The case is metal, with plastic inserts on top and bottom. The fingerprint scanner on the back panel fires in just 0.3 seconds and supports gestures.
The main dual camera smartphone consists of a 13-megapixel sensor and an auxiliary 2-megapixel module. It is needed to blur the background in portrait mode. The front camera is 8 megapixel.
Unlike the Chinese version, Huawei P Smart received an NFC chip - you can connect Android Pay (which soon turns into Google Pay). Support for 5 GHz Wi-Fi, alas, did not appear. For autonomy, a 3000 mAh battery responds, the Micro USB port is used for charging. The smartphone runs Android 8.0 with the proprietary EMUI 8.0 shell. Available in two body colors: blue and gold.
Price issue and competitors
Huawei P Smart's branded stores will appear on February 2, and on February 9 it will be available in all major networks in Ukraine. The recommended retail price is 8000 hryvnia, but when you make a pre-order from January 26 to February 8, customers will receive a discount of 1,000 hryvnia.
Huawei P Smart stands out among models of its price range with an elongated display and a dual camera. The competition will be Motorola Moto G5 Plus (almost pure Android, more sizes) and Samsung Galaxy J5 (2017) with more modest characteristics.
Beginner Meizu M6s (review) will soon go on sale at a price of 6000 hryvnia, but the smartphone does not have a dual camera (although in the M6 Note it is) and NFC. Approximately the same can be said about Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus . If you do not plan to use contactless payments, you should pay attention to these devices.
