Huawei P smart plus 2019 Smartphone

I am not sure what’s the rationale behind having many phone models over a few good ones, but here they are anyways, the Huawei P smart 2019 and Huawei P smart+ 2019. The former was announced earlier this year while the latter, quietly made released recently. Both devices are almost identical, save for the difference in camera setup. The Huawei P smart 2019 has a duo camera setup and the Huawei P smart+ 2019 gets a triple camera setup.

P smart flaunts a 13 + 2 MP PDAF cameras and the P smart+ gets a 24 MP + 16 MP + 2 MP cameras. The front camera on the P smart is a 8 MP or a 16 MP item, depending on the market, and the P smart+ has a 8 MP item. The cameras on both handsets are laid out in line with the P series devices, i.e. vertically aligned. Also, they are all AI camera like so many of the phones are today. Sorry. Did you hear me yawn? Because I kind of did.

Other common hard specs include a 6.21-inch “dewdrop” display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2,340 x 1,080 (FHD+) display (with TÜV Rheinland-certified Eye Comfort mode to boot), HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC (4x A73), 3 GB RAM, 32-64 GB storage – also depending on market, expandable storage via microSD (up to 52 GB), a 3,400 mAh battery, LTE FDD/WCDMA/GSM radios, plus the usual serving of sensors and connectivity – packed inside a gorgeous 3D curved unibody with “glossy ceramic-like texture.” Wait what? Can you feel ceramic? Aren’t those porous? Hmmm…

The duo, my friends, is why I never pick every phones there are in the market to feature here. The specifications are so incremental, if any at all. This is also why I adore Apple’s strategy of same models and specifications across all markets. I mean, seriously, why make it all so confusing? What’s the point even anyways? It really boggles my mind. I get the segmentation, demographics and all, but this is just too confusing. It is cannibalizing its own market at its best if you ask me.

There are nothing fancy on these mid-range devices, namely, no under display fingerprint scanner. Both of them has pretty expansive display with minimal chin and no physical ‘Home’ button, and both will run on Android 9 Pie, overlaid with Huawei’s EMUI 9 UI out-of-the-box. TBH, The specs are so mundane that it discourages me to even whip out a table of specifications. Sorry, but not sorry.

Huawei P smart 2019 is available in select EU markets now for 249 euros (about US$279), but the availability and pricing for the P smart+ is yet to be announced.
