Huawei is looking to challenge the Moto Es and Moto Gs of the world with a new affordable smartphone set to launch in a couple of days. The device is modeled Huawei G620-A2, and while its listing on Amazon has its shelf name as the Expo, Huawei is planning to sell it as the Huawei SnapTo (as evidenced by a banner on the very same page).
We’re not sure why they decided to throw it onto the online retailer in such quiet fashion, but they’ve done so with $180 price tag and a spec sheet that’s not all that bad for that amount of coin. Here’s what we’re expecting:
- 5-inch HD TFT display
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset (Quad-Core 1.2GHz)
- 1GB of RAM and 32GB of storage
- WiFi N, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS w/ aGPS
- 5 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front camera
- 5.69 x 2.85 x 0.33 in, 5.29 oz
- 4G LTE on both AT&T and T-Mobile
- 2,200mAh battery
- Android 4.4 KitKat
The device also isn’t designed bad, to boot. It features a faux-leather textured backing for a premium look and feel despite its non-premium price tag.
It might not be the most powerful, best looking or even the most affordable smartphone on the market right now, but the Huawei SnapTo sounds like a device anyone wouldn’t mind owning for the small price you’re paying. You can pre-order the device right now and Amazon will have it shipped to you as soon as April 9th hits.
