In recent years, Huawei received the notch with open arms. Nowadays, though, most companies are looking for ways to remove it, and as you can see, Huawei is no different.
Two tone design and a huge display
Called Huawei P Smart Z, the company's latest smartphone represents its newest offering in the budget segment and its first attempt at a full-screen device that does not include notch or trim.
Targeting fans of massive displays, the P Smart Z arrives equipped with a huge 6.6-inch LCD display that has a aspect ratio of 19.5: 9 and Full-HD + resolution (2340 x 1080p). As you would expect, the huge panel is paired with even frames, the only exception being the chin which is a bit thicker. A pop-out camera is also present, marking the first time Huawei has used this feature.
Hidden inside the mechanical module is a 16 megapixel selfie camera that offers an f / 2.0 aperture. This is paired at the rear with a vertically aligned dual camera configuration. Speaking of which, this includes a 16-megapixel f / 1.8 camera paired with a dedicated 2-megapixel depth sensor. Also present is an LED flash.
While on the topic of the back, it is worth noting that Huawei P Smart Z follows the steps of Google Pixel devices adopting a two-tone rear. But instead of using different materials or textures, Huawei opted for slightly different colors.
Specifications, price and release date of Huawei P Smart Z
Regarding the internal features of this smartphone, the P Smart Z is equipped with a modified version of the Kirin 710, dubbed Kirin 710F, along with a respectable 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Also present is Android 9 Pie straight out of the box, along with the EMUI 9.0 overlay and a large 4000mAh battery.
Huawei P Smart Z can now be bought in Italy or Spain for € 279. Presumably, sales will eventually expand into other domestic markets, but those details have yet to be confirmed.
