Moto G competitor from Huawei launches in the US through Amazon

Huawei is yet to make a big push into the US and while it has already set up its own online store to offer unlocked devices, the company is also partnering with an ecommerce for its latest mid-range smartphone. The handset is currently listed with the name SnapTo and has a price tag of $179.99.

Android Police which spotted the listing on Amazon notes that the Huawei SnapTo also goes by the name Expo. The handset has nothing much to write home about, but it does offer a good slice of features considering the retail tag. The phone’s main competition will be the Moto G which does have the upper hand since it comes with Android Lollipop and flaunts a gorgeous design.

The Huawei phone, however, has a mediocre form factor and packs version 4.4 KitKat out of the box. The core hardware is more of less the same for both smartphones and where the device in question excels is that it offers 4G LTE connectivity with bands compatible on AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the US.

The SnapTo might never get Lollipop though and if it’s indeed destined for a huge update, it will not be arriving anytime soon. What’s more, you can expect to find the company’s custom UI onboard the smartphone and with its own enhancements.
