In 2016, the Huawei P8 Lite was the most sold mobile in Spain and therefore, a year later, the firm decided to renew it by launching the P8 Lite 2017. In 2018 we saw how the range changed its name from the hand of Huawei P Smart and its variant Plus, and now, a few days before the end of the year, the Chinese company has made official its next generation.
As it had leaked, the Huawei P Smart 2019 landed with the Kirin 710 eight-core chipset, a dual rear camera and a FullHD + screen called Huawei Dewdrop of 6.21 inches, among other outstanding features. The price is also within the figures that were majenaban, so there have been few surprises about it.
