Huawei P Smart 2021: Smartphone comes to Europe for 229 euros
While Huawei is suffering more and more from the conflict between the United States and China, the company continues to release new smartphones in Europe. And so the new 2021 version of the Huawei P Smart was presented in Austria today, where the device will be available for 229 euros.
For this price you get a 6.67 inch display that has a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels and has a hole cutout in the middle. The selfie camera has a resolution of 8 MP, while the main sensor of the quad camera setup on the back has 48 MP. The smartphone also comes with an 8 MP wide-angle camera and two 2 MP sensors, each of which is responsible for calculating depth information and for macro shots. The fingerprint scanner of the P Smart 2021 is hidden in the power button on the side of the smartphone.
Inside, Huawei uses the Kirin 710A as the processor, which is supported by 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The latter can be expanded by up to 512 GB using a micro-SD card. The battery has a capacity of 5000mAh and is charged via USB Type C with up to 22.5 watts. Unfortunately, NFC is not on board. EMUI 10.1, which is based on Android 10, is pre-installed as the operating system. Because of the Huawei ban, which was imposed by the Trump administration over a year ago, the model comes without the usual apps and services from Google.
In summary, the new Huawei P Smart 2021 can unfortunately hardly set itself apart from the competition in the price range. You can usually get more for the same price from other providers in South Korea and China. But even if the new model could outperform the other manufacturers in terms of specifications, a recommendation is currently difficult due to the lack of Google services.
