In the hopes of maintaining its position as the second largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, Huawei has announced its plans to release an updated version of its Huawei P Smart device in 2019.
The original Huawei P Smart was released in January this year, and featured a small notch on a wide display.
Other key features included artificial intelligence, a special eye-comfort feature to filter out blue light, and AR capabilities.
And while other smartphones with these features often come with a hefty price tag, the Huawei P Smart cost just £219.
It’s unclear how much the updated version is likely to cost.
The announcement comes during a rather challenging year for Huawei, when serious questions have been raised about the firm’s security.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson recently said he has “very deep concerns” about the Chinese firm’s involvement in upgrading the UK’s mobile network, after Australia, New Zealand and the US began restricting use of Huawei technology.
“We’ve got to look at what partners such as Australia and the US are doing in order to ensure that they have the maximum security of that 5G network and we’ve got to recognise the fact, as has been recently exposed, that the Chinese state does sometimes act in a malign way,” Mr Williamson said.
