Huawei announced the P40 Lite (4G version) in February 2020. Consumers like the phone with a mid-range processor and a four-camera setup for $ 325. The Chinese brand will once again release a phone equipped with a 5G network, which it reportedly plans to bundle with attractive hardware and a price tag.
What’s new in the Huawei P40 Lite?
The mid-range phone will feature a Belong 5G modem and a Kirin 820 chipset, updated over the previous Kirin 810 chipset. The Chinese brand announced the chipset in March of this year, and it is the current novelty. 25% more CPU performance and 40% more GPU performance are expected, which is an upgrade over the Kirin 810.
The 5G version of the P40 Lite is expected to dominate the market alongside its current competitors. It is expected that the phone will work based on Android 10, without Google services and official applications. However, Huawei has created its app market with EMUI 10 out of the box.
The second advantage of the successor is the four-camera setup, which is a 64-megapixel main sensor, backed up by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, as well as a 2-megapixel macro sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The front of the camera is a 16-megapixel selfie camera with an aperture.
The predecessor had a 48-megapixel main camera and a vertical design, but the team redesigned it to make a square body. Overall, the camera department looks promising to today’s consumers and can produce excellent results. However, to obtain deep detail in photographs, good conditions of natural light are necessary.
Many Chinese phone makers have been forced to introduce fast charging into mid-range phones, and Huawei hopes to keep up with competitors. The phone is expected to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery and come with a 40-watt fast charger. It is reported that the P40 Lite (5G) may not receive wireless charging, but will have the ability to reverse charge.
Huawei’s European division is reportedly planning to launch the phone in Germany, France and many other European countries. You can order it in Space Silver, Crush Green and Midnight Black. There is no official information on prices yet, but it is expected that in the European market it will cost from 350 to 425 euros.
