The Kirin 710-powered Huawei P Smart 2019 features a 6.21-inch display with a pearl-shaped notch and promises to deliver "a superior smartphone experience at an accessible price point" starting next week. The United Kingdom will be the first country to receive it, but other markets should follow in the months to come.

Huawei is back with a new P Smart mid-range handset. This time, the handset comes with Android 9.0 Pie and EMUI 9.0 on top, a notched display, and the HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor inside.

In addition to the above, these are the other essentials: 6.21-inch screen size and 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, 3 GB of memory, 64 GB internal storage space, 8 MP selfie shooter, 13 + 2 MP main camera setup, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, all driven by a 3,400 mAh battery and available inside a Midnight Black, Aurora Blue, or Sapphire Blue 3D curved unibody design.

The P Smart 2019 comes with an innovative file system known as "Extendable Read-Only File System" or simply "EROFS" that promises to deliver improved disk performance and also sports file compression capabilities.

Since Huawei apparently made some compromises in the camera and memory departments, we expect a price below the US$200 mark. However, the P Smart 2019 will launch in the UK first, where it is expected to become available on January 10 via multiple retailers, such as Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone, A1, Amazon, and more. Other markets should get it later this year, but there is no official information yet about when and where the P Smart 2019 will land next.

Finally, if you are thinking about grabbing the new P Smart, you might want to check our in-depth review first, since it has been online for a few days already.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
