Huawei released the P40 series this year in April with a 5G phone as well. The cutting-edge Kirin 990 5G chip is super-fast and takes the user experience to the entire next level. But Huawei P40 Pro and Pro plus are just too expensive for some users. The Huawei P40 Pro with 256GB internal storage and 8GB RAM comes around $900. The higher-tier of smartphones in the series goes even higher in terms of price.
Now, the company decided to launch a new smartphone in the P40 series but that would be a more economical version of P40. The Huawei P40 lite 5G is an upgraded version of the Huawei P40 Lite that the company released in April 2020. The phone features upgraded silicon, a better camera equipped with AI software, and of course, 5G connectivity support.
The phone has a 6.5-inch LCD panel with HDR 10 support at Full HD+ resolution and has 1080 x 2400 pixels. The phone is powered by the new HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G octa-core chipset compared to the Kirin 810 on the previous model. The phone features a quad camera setup on the rear side of the phone. The primary camera is of 64MP and uses Sony IMx582 sensor with f/1.8, the secondary camera is of 8MP wide-angle lens with f/2.4, the third camera is of 2MP super macro lens with f/2.4, and the fourth camera is of 2MP with depth sensor lens and f/2.4. The front camera can take up to 16MP photos with f/2.0. The phone has 6GB internal storage with 128GB RAM.
The phone has a 4,000mAh battery with a 40W proprietary fast-charging capability. This much battery is good enough for an average user to sustain his phone for more than 24 hours with a single full charge. You can charge your phone up to 70% in 30 minutes as per the company’s official statement.
In terms of connectivity, the phone supports Bluetooth, USB Type-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, and 5G support. The phone comes running EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10. The design is similar to Huawei Nova 7 SE that was launched in China last month. The phone comes in three colors – Space silver, Crush green, and Midnight black. If you living in any part of Europe, you can pre-order the phone right now. The phone will go on sale starting on May 29 for a price of $430.
