A couple of days ago the Huawei SnapTo was spotted at Amazon, and now the Chinese company has officially announced it.
The SnapTo looks like a direct competitor to Motorola’s Moto G, both in terms of pricing as well as when considering the specs in play.
The Huawei SnapTo has a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera with LED flash, a 2 MP front-facing shooter, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of built-in storage (which is expandable via microSD cards), and a 2,200 mAh battery.
It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 chipset, boasting a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU and Adreno 305 GPU. 4G LTE support is included, and software-wise we’re looking at Android 4.4 KitKat with Huawei’s Emotion UI 2.3 on top.
The phone is priced at $ 179.99, and you can pre-order one from Amazon in black or white. The release date is April 17 for the black model, while the white one is only expected in stock on May 15. Starting next week, the SnapTo will also be up for grabs at a few more retailers, including Best Buy, NewEgg, Fry’s, as well as Huawei’s official online store for the US.
