Once a farfetched idea only conceptualised in Hollywood movies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become more than just a buzzword and more synonymous with its application in the smartphone industry.

While extending its usage beyond just content capturing capabilities, AI in smartphones has since been applied to optimize a smartphone’s performance, extend battery life and enhance processing time to become more instantaneous.

However, since its inception in the smartphone industry, AI has been used to turn the most amateur of photographers into pros, allowing avid photographers to enhance their skills to capture photos far beyond capabilities ever thought possible.

To this end, with the introduction of more smartphones with high-end capabilities featuring at competitive prices, AI technology has become incorporated into more smartphones as a standard feature.

The new HUAWEI P smart 2019, lays testimony to this, adding premium features such as a powerful dual camera backed by AI through its Kirin 710 chipset.

The Kirin 710 powers the Huawei P smart 2019 to run Huawei’s EMUI 9 atop the Android 9.0 Pie operating system, offering a more efficient and simplified user experience.

While AI assists the smartphone with numerous operations, one of the key features the technology supports the device is through its camera capabilities.  

The HUAWEI P smart 2019, is able to almost instantly recognise the scenery in an image being captured with the smartphone’s rear dual 13MP+2MP camera. Dual camera smartphones usually make use of one lens for RGB and the second for Monochrome or Black and White imagery. The Monochrome lens allows the smartphone to sharpen images captured on the device, while also making colours more vivid in a picture.

The HUAWEI P smart 2019 uses a dual camera setup and the power of AI to ensure the user captures the perfect shot every time. The smartphone optimises settings through AI by identifying 22 scenarios from sunsets, to plants and pets. The rear camera is also able to shoot video in 1080p at either 30 frames per second (fps), or 60 fps.

Meanwhile, the facing 16MP camera captures flawless selfies with the AI functionality recognising 12 scenarios to optimise the background of a selfie, while enhancing the face being captured. The selfie camera is also able to capture video in 1080p at 30 fps.

Being a mid-tier smartphone, the HUAWEI P smart 2019 is a strong competitor at a reasonable price point, with a Recommend Retail Price (RRP) of R4999, to rival even the most premium smartphones in the South African market.

In addition Huawei will provide the first 10 000 Huawei existing handset users who purchase the P smart 2019 a free screen repair or replacement valued at R 1500 during the first 12 months after their purchase of the P smart 2019 between 1 February and 31 December 2019
