It is the first Huawei smartphone with an extendable camera, although the manufacturer follows an emerging trend. Other expected smartphones, such as the Samsung Galaxy A80, OnePlus 7 Pro and the  Oppo Reno,  also feature a tilting or extendable selfie camera. According to Huawei, the camera can slide up 100,000 times without problems.

Because the camera is not on the screen itself, the image fills almost the entire front. The P Smart Z also has a large 6.6-inch screen. Due to the narrow edges, the device itself remains relatively compact. The LCD screen has a resolution of 2340 by 1080 pixels.

Smooth hardware for a low price

With a suggested retail price of less than 300 euros, the P Smart Z is a very affordable device. Still, the specifications seem pretty impressive. On the inside is a Kirin 710 chipset with 4GB of memory, the same chip that is also in the more expensive  P Smart (2019)  and  P30 Lite. Moreover, the P Smart Z has a large battery of 4000 mAh, enough for two days without recharging. The storage space is 64GB.

On the back is a dual camera, with a primary camera of 16 megapixels that is supported by a depth sensor of 2 megapixels. With that, you add a bokeh effect to portrait photos. The fingerprint scanner can also be found on the back. At the bottom, you will find a headphone connection.
