The Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition has officially arrived. Interestingly, the device suddenly and rather unofficially became available for pre-order earlier this month. But Huawei has now officially acknowledged the existence of the device. Moreover, the company has even offered the Huawei P Smart 2019 for sale. Incidentally, Huawei wants the device to officially arrive next year. Hence, the Chinese smartphones and wireless networking giant will initiate sales of the device on January 02, 2019.

Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition Specifications, Features
As mentioned above, the Huawei P Smart is not a premium and certainly not a flagship Android smartphone from Huawei. The device doesn’t have the latest HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, ample RAM, powerful imaging and other top-end features. Instead, the Huawei P Smart 2019 packs surprisingly humble hardware.
It is amply clear that Huawei is attempting to break into the increasingly competitive but still highly lucrative budget and mid-range Android smartphone segment with the Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition Android handset. The smartphone features a 6.21-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The device does have a dewdrop notch that houses the front-facing camera, allowing the Huawei P Smart 2019 to offer a screen to body ratio of 83.1 percent.
The Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition packs the capable HiSilicon Kirin 710 octa-core processor. The SoC, which is fabricated on the 12nm production process, works with Mali-G51 MP4. It is very strange to note the device comes in a single memory configuration of 3GB RAM + 64GB internal memory. Although, the hybrid Dual SIM slot can hold a 512GB microSD card, the amount of RAM is certainly concerning.
The Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition features a dual-rear camera setup comprising of 12MP + 2MP sensors. Embedded in the dewdrop notch is a humble 8MP front-facing camera.
The budget Huawei smartphone comes with a 3400mAh battery that supports 10W Fast Charging. A microUSB charging and data transfer port, 3.5mm headphone jack, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and dual-band Wi-Fi, sum up the highlights of the Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition smartphone.
Huawei P Smart Price, Availability
Huawei has officially launched the Huawei P Smart 2019 Edition smartphone. However, sales will commence on January 02, 2019. The single 3GB+64GB storage variant of the smartphone appears to be headed to European markets, where it will sell for €250 (INR 20,000 approx.). Customers buying through the EE, CarphoneWarehouse and O2 will have to pay £149 (INR 13,000 approx.), with shipments commencing January 11.
It is certainly odd to see a 3GB RAM Huawei smartphone. Almost all Android handset makers are steadily moving on to 4GB RAM as minimum even in the affordable and budget Android segment. Still, the device could sell in European markets where smartphone prices are quite steep.
