After making big waves in Europe, one of the most impressive budget devices in recent memory is finally up for grabs stateside. Unfortunately, what you’re able to buy right now from Amazon is not technically a Huawei P Smart 2019 version designed specifically for the US market.
That obviously means CDMA support for carriers like Verizon and Sprint is out of the question. Worse yet, this “international” handset with “international” LTE connectivity can’t achieve proper 4G network speeds and also comes with No Warranty.
If you don’t have a problem settling for 3G speeds on GSM operators, the good news is you can get these dual-SIM Huawei P Smart 2019 units.
As for pricing, Amazon is offering the 3GB + 32GB configuration model for just $191.57. The handset comes in Midnight Black, Coral Red, and Aurora Blue colors.
