Brand new for this year, the Huawei P Smart 2020 is the latest addition to the P Smart series – a midrange selection from the smartphone giant. This handset may be budget-friendly, but its tech offering won’t disappoint. From the speedy Huawei Kirin 710 processor to the dual camera system, the Huawei P Smart 2020 can handle your everyday smartphone needs with ease.
Explore the top 5 features of this impressive new handset right here.
1 - Design
With its 3D curved unibody and ceramic-like surface, the Huawei P Smart 2020 is as stylish to look at as it is comfortable to hold. Measuring just 8.2mm in depth, this handset is super slim, and weighing 163g, it strikes the balance between being conveniently lightweight and feeling still feeling substantial in the hand.
It’s not just the unique, sleek shape that you’ll notice. The durable plastic body has been processed by 8 layers of sophisticated colour gradient craftmanship – leaving it with an eye-catching, iridescent finish. Over on the rear you’ll find a fingerprint scanner built into the device, so you can securely unlock your phone with a simple touch. There’s also a standard 3.5mm headphone jack located in the base of the handset – a handy inclusion that enables you to listen to music with or without Bluetooth headphones.
2 - Display
Meanwhile on the face of the Huawei P Smart 2020, you’ll find a cutting-edge 6.21-inch FHD+ display. This display is capable of achieving 16.7 million shades, so whether you’re a smartphone gamer, avid YouTube fan or love to squeeze in an episode of your favourite show on your commute, you’ll have a vivid viewing experience, rich with colour.
The screen-to-body ratio is a streamlined 89%, making bezels barely noticeable, save for the minimal dewdrop notch where the 8MP front camera sits. This camera also gives you an alternative way to unlock your phone – just point the handset to your face, and Face Unlock will quickly recognise you, granting you access to your home screen.
3 - Dual Camera System
Mounted on the rear of the handset in a vertically stacked module, you’ll find the Huawei P Smart 2020’s dual camera system. Comprised of one 13MP ultra-clear lens and an accompanying 2MP depth lens, this camera is just as capable of capturing crystal clear closeups as it is taking those scenic landscape shots. The 2MP depth lens will even help you to achieve background blur so you can create artistic photography effects, like bokeh.
As well as this, the 8MP front-facing camera boasts an automatic retouching feature, which uses Huawei’s AI algorithm to enhance your selfies – even in backlit photographs – so you see your best side every time.
4 - EMUI 9.1
The Huawei P Smart 2020 runs on the EMUI 9.1 operating system, a custom Huawei OS which is based on Android 9 and has plenty to offer in its own right. Huawei Vlog is a new feature that offers a whole host of tools which you can access to edit your video footage – add dramatic filters, special effects and background music to upgrade your film to a true cinematic experience.
EMUI 9.1 is also optimised to be up to 20% faster, and offers a significant increase in space too, with enough additional storage for all your images, music, and more. This operating system also makes sharing between devices even easier, with the Huawei Share OneHop feature. This enables you to efficiently send documents, photos and video files from your smartphone to your Huawei computer in seconds.
5 - Power
Despite being a budget-friendly handset, the Huawei P Smart 2020 is powered by an advanced selection of tech, including an octa-core CPU, Huawei Kirin 719 processor and Mali GPU. This powerful combination can perform billions of calculations per second, handling your everyday tasks with ease and switching seamlessly between apps without delay. Plus, with a 3,400mAh battery on board, there’s no need to worry about the high-performance processor draining your battery – Huawei is confident that you’ll be able to make the most of your handset all day without losing power.
You’ll also find 128GB storage, but this can be increased by up to 512GB via microSD card (sold separately).
