According to Huawei, the 16-megapixel selfie camera automatically pops up in one second and goes away when you’re done. To allay any durability concerns, Huawei claims that the P Smart Z’s pop-up mechanism withstands up to 12kg (~26.5 pounds) of pressure and still works after 100,000 cycles.
The pop-up selfie camera also means that the P Smart Z is the first Huawei smartphone to eschew any sort of notch or display cut-out. Instead, the phone features a large 6.59-inch LCD display with Full HD+ (2,340 x 1,080) resolution.
Around back is a two-tone finish, though there’s no material difference between the top and bottom tone. Also around back is a dual-camera setup comprised of a 16MP primary sensor and 2MP depth sensor.
Under the hood, the P Smart Z features a modified version of Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 710 processor. Except for the packaging process, everything about the Kirin 710F is the same as the normal Kirin 710.
The P Smart Z is now available in Italy and Spain for 279 euros (~$313). We’ll update this post if or when the phone makes its way to other regions.
