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).

huawei snapto main 2We’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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. 32gb of storage at this price is a very good deal.

    1. specs are wrong the internal memory is 8gb external SD 32gb

      1. The specs on the listing are jumbled together. I can see why the mistake occurred:

        “Memory Card slot: Up to 32 GB Internal: 8 GB,”

        1. Similar to the Moto G, though I believe the G (2nd edition) can handle micro SD up to 64.

          1. Pretty much any relatively modern Android phone can handle any size microSD card. Heck, I had a 64GB card in my Droid Bionic in 2012 running Gingerbread and it was fine.

  2. Not bad especially since it’s unlocked for US with LTE.

  3. HD TFT display – just 720p not 1080p right?

    1. thats generally how they market it. HD usually equals 720p where they usually say 1080p specifically if it is full HD

  4. Moto G is a better deal at the end of the day IMO, but not a bad alternative.

  5. For a 5 incher that’s pretty good from them, especially with the Snaprdragon vs MT garbage.

  6. 32gb of storage? In a midranger?

  7. I hope their upcoming high end phones are also ATT LTE compatible. I have the Mate 7 and it struggles with data connectivity on ATT.

  8. Another site is reporting an 8 GB model, so that would be a deals breaker for most people

  9. Double the ram and add a bigger battery and and I’m sold. I’ll pay an extra $20 for it too! LOL

    1. I’d also like a snapdragon 410, the 400 is far outdated by now and the 410 is way better. If they gave it a removable battery, 2GB ram and snapdragon 410 it would be great for $180, assuming it has good LTE band support.

      1. I’d like an update processor as well, but a removable battery isn’t as important, although convenient. I find that I hardly ever have to remove my battery, so I no longer ask for this. Granted, I’ve never had a phone with a fixed battery yet.

  10. Release date has been changed to the 17th.
