Huawei P40 Lite With Quad Rear Cameras, Kirin 810 SoC Launched: Price, Specifications

Huawei P40 series is all set to be unleashed at an event on March 26, but a member of the P40 family has already been revealed. The global smartphone maker has quietly launched the Huawei P40 Lite in Spain. However, Huawei P40 Lite is not a new phone because it is apparently a rebranded version of the Huawei Nova 6 SE that was introduced back in December. As for the specifications, the Huawei P40 Lite packs a quad rear camera setup and is powered by the in-house HiSilicon Kirin 810 SoC.

The Huawei P40 Lite priced at EUR 299 (roughly Rs. 23,378) for the 6GB + 128GB variant, but there is no word on the more powerful model packing 8GB of RAM. The phone comes in Midnight Black, Sakura Pink and Crush Green colour options and will be up for pre-orders starting March 2. However, there is no word when the phone will make it to other markets, including India.

In case of specifications, the device is a dual-SIM phone and runs Android 10 with the EMUI skin on top. However, the software is built around the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) core and not Google Mobile Services (GMS) core, which means no access to essential Google services like Play Store, Gmail, and Maps among others. The new Huawei phone packs a 6.4-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2310 pixels) display with a hole-punch at the top-left corner. It is powered by the octa-core Kirin 810 SoC, paired with up to 8GB of RAM.

In case of imaging hardware, Huawei P40 Lite features a quad rear camera setup that is headlined by a 48-megapixel main camera. It is accompanied by an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Selfies and video calls are taken care of by a 24-megapixel front camera housed in the hole-punch.

The phone has 128GB of onboard storage that can further be expanded via a microSD card. Huawei P40 Lite retains the 3.5 headphone jack and features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for authentication. It comes equipped with 4,200mAh battery that supports the proprietary 40W SuperCharge fast charging technology. Connectivity options include 4G, Bluetooth, GPS, and NFC, while a USB Type-C port is there for charging and file transfer.
