Huawei P Smart: Design
Huawei P Smart owns a modern design language, often found on newly released phone models on the market. The back and frame of the machine, although made of plastic, is still finished and has very good build quality.
Located on the front, the device’s 6.67-inch screen is surrounded by a relatively thick black bezel when compared to flagship standards, but still on par with the mid-range price segment. In fact, the Poco X3 NFC and Redmi Note 9 Pro series also have a screen border of the same size as the P Smart.
On the screen of P Smart is a small hole in the middle position to make room for the selfie camera. The manufacturer does not officially announce the type of glass used to protect the screen. On the back is equipped with a rather large camera cluster, causing the phone to be a bit dodgy when placed on the table.
The plastic frame of the device has a color that harmonizes with the back and is smooth and flat. The frame itself is very resistant to fingerprints, different from the glossy back of the device.
Due to the use of LCD panel, P Smart does not support fingerprint sensor technology under the screen. Instead, the device’s fingerprint sensor is integrated inside the power button on the right edge position. This button is placed negative compared to the body, making it easy to find when holding the device in your hand.
Located opposite is a card reader slot. This slot has a total of 3 separate slots, allowing you to use 2 nano SIM cards and 1 microSD card at the same time.
