Huawei is known for releasing smartphones catering to different customers at different price points. It is primarily known for its flagship offering but every now and then, it keeps on releasing relatively cheaper mid-range smartphones. One such new mid-range phone named Huawei P Smart (2019) is currently in works as it has been reported by XDA and spotted on the FCC website.
Starting with the XDA report, the Huawei P Smart (2019) will sport an IPS LCD display panel with a waterdrop notch. There are no details on display size but considering the modern trend, it should be at least 5.5-inch. Under the hood, it will be using the octa-core Kirin 710 processor which is an upgrade over Kirin 659 available in last year's P Smart. It is also said to come with a glass unibody design for a premium feel.
The report mentions that there will be 3GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage but there is a good possibility that we might get to see more variants. One can surely expect a 4GB RAM variant when compared with other contemporary smartphones. It will be featuring dual rear cameras but information regarding the sensors and their functionalities is currently unknown. The Huawei P Smart (2019) is expected to get official during January 2019 for a starting price of €199 which makes it quite affordable for what it has to offer.
Now if we move to the FCC listing, it reveals that the Huawei P Smart (2019) will be bearing the model number POT-LX3. It shows that there will be at least four variants (including configuration and single/dual-SIM) with up to 64GB storage option. There will be 3320mAh battery to keep the lights on which is slightly bigger than the currently available P Smart. Here is the sketch of the phone discovered in the FCC listing.
