Huawei P Smart 2019 to be released in Europe in the month of January has shown up on Geekbench benchmarking site for its variant POT-LX1.
As always, we get limited information from Geekbench listing but it does confirm what we already know about the device based on the rumors floating around. All that we can see in Geekbench is that it runs Android Pie OS and has 3GB RAM. The octa-core processor clocks at 1.71 GHz.
What we know about Huawei P Smart 2019 so far?
From the previous FCC listing we spotted (POT-LX3) and based on other rumors, we know that the device is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC that was first released on Huawei Nova 3i. The performance of this 12nm processor can be compared to that of Kirin 960 and Kirin 970, competing directly against Snapdragon 636 and 660 SoC.
The predecessor, Huawei P Smart 2019, was powered by Kirin 659 and as expected, the 2019 successor has a slightly better processor for improved performance.
The single core performance in Geekbench for P Smart 2019 is 1517 whereas for P Smart 2018, it’s 930. The multi core score is 5535 for 2019 variant whereas for the predecessor it’s just 3566. This confirms the improved performance of the upcoming version.
Powered by a mid-range SoC such as Kirin 710, the phone is rightly priced at €199.
P Smart 2019 will come with a configuration of 3GB/64GB RAM combo and we might also expect a 4GB RAM variant for this device. The dimensions 155.2 mm in height, 73.4 mm in width and 161.2 mm in diagonal side which translates to a 6.2 inch display which has a waterdrop notch as can be seen in the prototype image leaked through the FCC documents.
Huawei P Smart 2018 (FIX-LX1) was also known as Huawei Enjoy 7S in China as is the norm with most of the Huawei devices released in China. We’ll have to wait to see under what name Huawei P Smart 2019 is released in China.
Stay tuned for more updates.
