Launched in October, Huawei’s Mate 20 series of smartphones are easily among the best Android flagships you can buy right now. However, it seems that the next smartphone that the Chinese technology major is working on is a mid-range device.
An yet-to-be-launched Huawei smartphone recently made an appearance on benchmarking platform Geekbench. Bearing model identifier POT-LX1, it could very well be Huawei P Smart (2019), Nashville Chatter reports.
Going by the Geekbench listing, Huawei P Smart (2019) attained scores of 1,517 and 5,535 in single-core and multi-core tests respectively. More importantly, the listing shows the smartphone running Android Pie (most likely with the latest EMUI baked on top), and having 3GB of RAM. The device is likely to be powered by a Kirin 710 SoC.
Last month, the Huawei P Smart (2019) was spotted in an FCC certification filing, which revealed some of its key specs. These include dual-SIM functionality, 32GB/64GB of internal storage, and a 3,320mAh battery. Up front, the smartphone is expected to have a ‘waterdrop’ notch for housing the front-facing (24-megapixel) lens. At the back, Huawei P Smart (2019) will most likely have a dual-lens rear camera system, comprised of a 13-megapixel lens and a 2-megapixel lens.
