Huawei is working on a budget handset with a pop-up front-facing camera, it has been revealed. The device, which is believed to be the Huawei P Smart Z, surfaced in an official-looking render earlier this week — with the retractable module in tow.
The Huawei P Smart Z bears a striking resemblance to rival Vivo’s NEX, in the sense that there’s a considerable amount of dead space beneath the identical 6.59-inch FHD+ screen, as well as a dual-camera and fingerprint reader on the rear.
Under the hood, the Huawei P Smart Z bundles a Huawei-made Kirin 710 CPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a 16MP front-facing camera and a 4000mAh cell, according to a source familiar with the matter. It also ships running EMUI 9.0.
There’s no word on when Huawei will take the wraps off the Huawei P Smart Z, though Huawei Hub has learned that it will retail for somewhere in the region of €200 ($222) to €250 ($280), and will be available in three colors, when it does.
