Usually, leaked devices come in the way of random images or renders which appear online. However, in terms of the latest budget offering by Huawei, the leak came via Amazon who suddenly a couple of days ago started advertising a new Huawei device which was listed as the Huawei SnapTo. Well, following on from that quiet listing on Amazon, Huawei have today gone and officially announced the device.
If you missed the previous report, then the Huawei SnapTo is a budget smartphone and comes in at a very reeoansbly $179.99 for the unlocked model. For that kind of money, you might be wondering what you get. Well, in terms of the specs, the Huawei SnapTo comes equipped with a 5-inch TFT HD display with a 1280 x 720 resolution. Inside, the Huawei SnapTo comes with 1GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor (clocking at 1.2 GHz). In terms of cameras, the SnapTo offers a 5-megapixel rear shooter (with LED Flash) coupled with a 2-megapixel front facing option. Additionally, the SnapTo is loaded with 8GB internal memory as standard and does come with a microSD card slot for expandable memory. The device is powered by a modest 2,200mAh battery and comes running on Android 4.4 (KitKat) with Huawei's Emotion UI (version 2.3) on top. Of course, not forgetting that this is an LTE enabled smartphone with band compatibility in the U.S. including AT&T and T-Mobile
If you are thinking that this might not be a bad option to go for, then the device is available in both a black and white color variant. It was presumed due to the Amazon listing that the device would be made available starting from today, however, Huawei's announcement (source link below) states that the Huawei SnapT0 will be available starting April 17th for the Black version. The White option will see a slight delay and is noted as being available from May 15th. The press release also states that the Huawei SnapTo will be available via other retailers including Best Buy from next week. Either way though, both versions of the device are currently available to pre-order now via amazon for those who are interested.
