Although the Huawei P30 Lite was rumored to be the part of Huawei P30 series, the particular handset somehow missed out on being launched on Tuesday in Paris, where Huawei debuted its P30 series flagships, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, amidst a lot of fanfare.
But now the Huawei P30 Lite has gone official, albeit in a quiet manner.The device has been listed on the Huawei Canada site for preorders now. Also, a number of retailers in the Philipines have made the phone available for preorders.
The Huawei P30 Lite is a pared down version of the Huawei P30 with an affordable price tag targeted at the price conscious buyers.
The Huawei P30 Lite design wise resembles the Huawei P30 and holds on to the latter’s triple-rear camera setup though with slight megapixel adjustment. Also, the water-drop notch is retained.
Regarding specifications, the Android 9.0 Lite features a 6.15-inch full HD+ (1080x2312p) IPS notched display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. On the inside, the HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC paired with Mali-G51 GPU, 4GB/6GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage with expandability support up to 256GB via microSD card pumps the power.
The triple-rear camera module comprises a 24MP primary camera sensor, an 8MP wide-angle sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor while up front it offers the same 32MP AI selfie camera integrated into the water-drop notch.
For the firmware, the Huawei P30 Lite boots EMUI 9.0.1 laid on top of Android 9.0 Pie. The fuel is derived from a 3,340mAh battery. Here 18W QuickCharge and Type-C port ensure swift refilling of juice.
The fingerprint scanner sits at the back for biometrics. And in terms of connectivity options, the smartphone supports 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, micro USB port, and 3.5mm audio jack.
The Huawei P30 Lite’s 4GB RAM+128GB storage model is up for preorders in Canada and the Philipines for a price of CAD430 (Approx. INR22,100) and PHP16,999 (Approx. INR22,200) respectively. The higher-end model with 6GB RAM+128GB storage is, however, currently preordering in the Philipines only.
The handset is offered in Midnight Black, Peacock Blue, and Pearl White color options to choose from.
There is, however, no official word as to when the Huawei P30 Lite is launching in India. Since its flagship siblings, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are likely soon to see the light in the Indian market we presume the P30 Lite might also drop in alongside.
