Does a smartphone with a notch becomes smarter? Yes, it does. This is what Huawei claims for the Huawei P Smart Plus 2019 – an upgraded variant (in terms of internals and larger display) of the recently launched P Smart 2019.
Huawei P Smart Plus – Features
The Huawei P Smart Plus 2019 brings a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display on the front with resolution of 2340 x1080 pixels and aspect ratio of 19:9. The exterior of the device is made with a combination of aluminum alloy and polycarbonate that resembles a bit with the iPhone X.
Huawei has embedded a HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset under the hood of P Smart Plus 2019 to power up the device, featuring an octa-core processor paired with the ARM Mali-G51 MP4 GPU.
The Huawei P Smart Plus 2019 is a dual SIM supported handset that comes with Android 9.0 Pie based Huawei Emotion UI 9.0. We have 3GB of RAM along with 64GB of native storage that may also be expanded by up to 256GB through a microSD card slot.
There is a headphone jack as well as a micro USB charging port that makes the P Smart Plus among the only few that still feature the old charging port. This phone is equipped with a reasonable battery capacity of 3,400 mAh that should be fine for day to day tasks. The battery supports fast charging and takes approximately 90 minutes to charge completely.
The photography department of the Huawei P Smart Plus 2019 is dominated by a triple camera setup placed at the top left corner of the device having sensors of 24MP + 16MP + 2MP resolutions. The 24MP sensor is used for regular photography while the 16MP ultrawide lens is helpful when you want to fit in more in your pictures. The selfie camera boasts 8MP and resides in the tiny notch at the top.
Pricing and Availability
Huawei has yet not shared the official price tag of the P Smart Plus 2019 but is expected to be launched in the emerging markets of Asia in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more updates.
