Huawei is all ready to launch its latest entry-level smartphone, the SnapTo, in the US next week.

The SnapTo runs Android 4.4 KitKat on a 5-inch 720p display. Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of RAM, the phone gives owners a 5-megapixel rear camera capable of capturing 720p HD video.

You can launch that camera through a shortcut: just press the volume-down button twice to activate, even with the display turned off.

Priced at $180, the unlocked Huawei SnapTo will work with both AT&T and T-Mobile's LTE networks. You won't find the handset at either carrier's retail stores, though; this one is offered online.

Customers interested in picking up the SnapTo can learn more about the device at GetHuawei.com, Amazon and other select online retailers and dealer stores.
