Huawei launches the Enjoy Z, starting at ~US$240 for the MediaTek Dimensity 800 and 5G
Huawei has debuted the Enjoy Z in its native China. The OEM had been rumored to drive 5G into more cost-effecitve tiers of the smartphone market with this device, and this seems to have been borne out. Nevertheless, it also packs some additional attractively high-end specs.
First and foremost among these may be the Z's display: its FHD+ 6.5-inch has a 90 hertz (Hz) refresh rate, along with an 180Hz touch-response rate. It is driven by the MediaTek Dimensity 800, a 7 nanometer (nm) 4x 2.0GHz Cortex-A76/4 x 2.0GHz Cortex-A55 processor that confers dual-mode 5G on the phone thanks to its integrated modem.
The Enjoy Z has just 1 front-facing 16MP camera, found in a waterdrop-style notch, and triple rear shooters. The main sensor has a resolution of 48MP, however. It also has a decent 4000mAh battery, which charges at up to 22.5 watts (W).
However, the price may admittedly be the new Enjoy-series variant's most interesting feature. It has officially undercut the OPPO A92s, the first phone to launch with the Dimensity 800. It starts at a strikingly low 1699 yuan (~$238) for a 6GB RAM SKU, whereas the alternative was 2199 yuan (~$308) at launch.
Then again, the A92s' base model has 128GB of internal storage, whereas that of the Enjoy Z has 64. However, the Huawei newbie has OPPO beat again in this vein, as its own 6/128GB SKU is only 1899 yuan (~$266). Customers looking for a little more futureproofing could also consider its 8/128GB top-end option, which (again) comes in at 2199 yuan.
The Huawei Enjoy Z comes in Magic Night Black, Dark Blue or Sakura Snow Clear Sky (unsurprisingly, this last one is a gradient) colorways. It can be pre-ordered from now on platforms such as Vmall, but also goes on sale as normal in China from June 1, 2020.
