Huawei South Africa Consumer Business Group (CBG) introduced the phone, which features a full view display and a dual camera setup, in Johannesburg this week.
Huawei says that the P smart continues the design language of the P Series, “characterised by simplicity and elegance – a slim metallic body, flat smooth rear surface, with striking aesthetics”. It will be available in black and gold colors.
“It’s the first time the industry will see both a dual camera and FullView display at this price range and we are excited to introduce this to the South African market,” said Likun Zhao GM, Huawei Consumer Business.
Huawei P smart’s FullView display brings an immersive viewing experience, while the enhanced camera qualities provide advanced bokeh effects and photography functions like the beauty camera and gesture shot. The smartphone also introduces four intelligent sensing functions: facial recognition, gender recognition, 10-level skin improvement, and automatic perception.
The P Smart hides three antennas in the upper and lower parts of the metallic body to avoid the traditional three-section design’s impact on body aesthetics. With a 2.5D curved screen design, HUAWEI P smart feels more compact and comfortable in the hand. It also features a one-touch split-screen mode supporting the simultaneous running of two apps.
Combining 13MP + 2MP rear dual cameras and 16-level dual shot blurring, Huawei P smart can makes photos stereoscopic. Along with high-precision camera sensors, high-density phase detection pixels, a 13Mp HD camera focuses on real time, accuracy and speed. In order to improve photography at night, Huawei P smart features five groups of precision lenses, for cleaner, purer photos in low light.
Huawei P smart also includes the new EMUI 8.0 operating system, based on Android 8.0, taking usability to new levels for fast and intuitive feature use. P smart features a Kirin 659 processor made with a process for mid-range and high-end chips characterised by better energy performance. EMUI 8.0 uses an enhanced file processing system that reduces and cleans system fragmentation while reducing file fragmentation, allowing the smartphone to run faster and more smoothly.
It is equipped with fingerprint recognition, combined with other functions to develop ground-breaking apps such as fingerprint navigation, fingerprint shot and alarm clock deactivation with fingerprint.
Additionally, with Huawei’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology, Huawei P smart offers more high-quality, convenient scenario experiences, such as Wifi bridge, Phone Clone, Huawei Share and Dual Bluetooth Connections.
In order to enhance the battery life of smartphones with a full view, it features a 3 000-mAh battery in combination with the Intelligent Power-saving technology 6.0, which supports background real-time detection of power-hungry apps, comprehensive power consumption test and one-key optimisation to save power significantly.
