PLANO, Texas, April 09, 2015 – Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today introduced SnapTo, a full-featured Android smartphone perfect for consumers who don’t want to be shackled to carrier contracts and are watching their spending. As an unlocked smartphone, SnapTo gives customers the capabilities they care about without weighing them down with contracts and services they don’t want and can’t afford.

Powered by Android 4.4 (KitKat), Huawei SnapTo comes with some of the latest tech specs to make sure users are getting the best speed and mobile browsing experience on whichever U.S. GSM mobile service provider they choose. SnapTo supports LTE networks from the nation’s two leading GSM providers, along with smaller wireless service providers, making it possible to experience fast mobile web browsing and streaming almost anywhere across the country.

SnapTo doesn’t skimp on fun for the sake of functionality either. With the Ultra Snapshot camera activation feature, users simply press the lower volume button twice to capture a spontaneous moment or unexpected photo opportunity. This action immediately activates the camera and allows users to take and review a photo, all without unlocking the screen or opening the camera application. Plus, SnapTo’s camera application features unique after-effects like adding watermarks to personalize and customize captured photos.
