Neither the insiders’ information, nor the news of online stores, nor the official website of Huawei foreshadowed another announcement. However, yesterday the company officially announced the release of the third representative of the P30 model line, called the Huawei P30 Lite. Early in the morning, the manufacturers published a press release with official details regarding the specifications, functionality and design of the new device. As the logic dictates, the P30 Lite lives up to its name: the smartphone rejects some of the features of the more advanced P30 and P30 Pro models, but provides a nice design, has a universal triple camera and, most importantly, will be sold at a budget price.
Like the P30 and P30 Pro, the Huawei P30 Lite has a drop-shaped cut-out on the display and a bright back panel, and this seems to be the only similarity immediately apparent. The internal layout has been slightly modified so that the smartphone can perfectly fit into a limited budget.
The device is a thin and lightweight phone with a curved three-dimensional glass on the back panel, which makes it more comfortable in your hands, providing a confident grip, despite the glossy finish. Behind there is a fingerprint scanner and a triple camera, namely: the main sensor with a resolution of 24MP and an aperture of f / 1.8, a depth sensor with a resolution of 2MP for the bokeh effect and an ultra-wide angle sensor with a resolution of 8MP and a diaphragm of f / 2.4, which allows panoramic panoramas of landscapes. Just like the P30, the budget P30 Lite is equipped with a 32-megapixel selfie camera in a tiny cutout on the front panel display.
The device is equipped with a 6.15-inch Full HD + display (resolution 2321 x 1080), as well as a mid-level Kirin 710 chipset, 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of expandable internal memory. The smartphone runs on a 3340 mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging with USB-C connectivity. Huawei P30 Lite comes preloaded with Android OS 9 Pie.
Information on pricing and release date is still incomplete, but it is known that a device version with 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage is currently being sold in the company’s official store in South Africa. Price Huawei P30 Lite 5 – 127 rand (~ 360 US dollars).
