Huawei is the second biggest Android smartphone manufacturer after Samsung. Despite under difficult times due to the US ban, the company still managed to ship 200 million smartphones in 2049 before 64 days than the previous year. The brand has launched a number of smartphones after the US ban but none of them made it to international markets. It started re-branding its old phones with new names and that is the case with the newly launched Huawei P Smart Pro for European countries.
Yes, you heard it right, Huawei has announced another mid-range smartphone in Europe with GMS (Google Mobile Services). You might be wondering how? That is because this phone is none other than a re-branded Honor 9X which itself is a re-branded Huawei Enjoy 10 Plus from earlier this year. Thus, apart from a different name, the Huawei P Smart Pro is actually an old phone being re-used for its Google certification.
The specifications of this phone include a 6.59-inches FHD+(2340 x 1080 pixels) LCD panel without any notch or a punch-hole since the 16MP selfie camera resides in a pop-up module. The device comes powered by an HiSilicon Kirin 710F SoC paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM. Further, it has support for storage expansion through microSD card and runs EMUI 9.1 based on Android Pie. There’s less chance if it will ever receive Android 10 based EMUI 10 update.
As far as cameras are concerned, it comes with a 48MP triple camera setup including an 8MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. The power button on the right-side doubles as a fingerprint sensor and it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. A 4,000mAh battery runs it with support for 10W charging via USB Type-C. Lastly, it is priced at around $360 and will be available in European countries like Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Ukraine, and others.
