Even though Huawei was unable to showcase its products at the MWC 2020 due to the abrupt cancellation of the event, the company is not willing to keep quiet. Huawei has officially launched the Huawei P40 Lite in Spain. The company is scheduled to unveil Huawei P40 series globally on March 26.
The Huawei P40 Lite is basically a rehashed variant of the Huawei Nova 6 SE, which was launched in December 2019. The highlight of the smartphone is the addition of Kirin 810 processor and 40W fast charging technology. The quad rear camera adds more glory to the device.
Huawei P40 Lite Specifications
The Huawei P40 Lite boasts a 6.4-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2310) hole-punch display. You will find the hole on the top-left corner of the display. On the internals, the Lite version of Huawei P40 ships with Kirin 910 processor coupled with up to 8GB RAM. The company has released 6GB RAM variant without giving any timeline for the 8GB RAM model. Unlike standard smartphones, the Huawei P40 Lite comes with 128GB expandable store and you will be able to extend the storage space via a microSD card.
Talking about the imaging, the Huawei P40 Lite bears a quad camera setup on the rear with a 48MP primary camera supported by an 8MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro sensor alongside a 2MP depth sensor.
Nowadays, companies are shipping new smartphones with an improved front camera. The P40 Lite is no exception with a 24MP camera sensor embedded in the hole-display on the corner of the display. You will be able to capture selfies and video calls using the extended 24MP camera sensor.
The built-in headphone port helps you to connect earphones and headphones for enhanced sound output. In sharp contrast with competing devices, the Huawei P40 Lite provides side-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Coming to the connectivity, the phone comes with 4G, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and other standard sensors. The Huawei P40 Lite is pre-loaded with EMUI UI based on Android 10 operating platform.
