On the 22nd of October, you will be able to buy the latest affordable P Smart phone by Huawei.
It is an interesting release because Huawei are struggling to produce new HiSilicon Kirin chipsets due to political issues with the US causing TSMC to cease taking orders from them.
HiSilicon Kirin 710A uses 14nm vs 12nm fabrication process
The Kirin 710A is a re-hash of the Kirin 710 that was used on the two previous generations P Smart phones, however, it is now produced on a 14nm fabrication process vs 12nm.
Huawei P Smart 2021 vs 2020 vs 2019
The Huawei P smart 2020 and 2019 were almost identical in specification apart from the 2020 model having more RAM and storage.
However, with Huawei being forced to use a dated chipset, this year they have almost everything else.
You now get a bigger display with the fingerprint sensor move to the power button and the selfie camera moved to a single punch hole.
The camera has had a massive upgrade too going from a basic 13MP lens and 2MP depth sensor to 48MP main lens, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth.
The batter has then been increased by 47% going from 3400mAh to 5000mAh and the charge speed has gone from a slow 10W to a much faster 22.5W.
Like other recent phones from Huawei, this will not have any Google apps installed on it. This, instead, uses Huawei Mobile Services and the App Gallery. This is improving every day, and you can get pretty much everything you want with the help of Petal Search which will find apps the App Gallery lacks and let you sideload them.
