When Huawei introduced its P20 range last year, it did so by launching three models, P20 , P20 Pro and P20 Lite , which is why, yesterday, during the event in which the new Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro came to light, many People asked if there would finally be a Lite version and when it would arrive. Well, the doubts have been cleared, and on the official page of Huawei Singapore, the P30 Lite already appears.
This model, which brings more modest benefits than its older brothers, comes with the focus on the photographic section and includes a triple rear camera and a 32-megapixel front camera. The 6.1-inch FullHD screen and fast charging are other characteristics of a terminal that comes to take the witness of its successful predecessor.
Kirin 710 with 6 GB of RAM
The first thing that jumps at the Huawei P30 Lite is that its panel has grown in size and now has a diagonal of 6.15 inches, FullHD resolution (2.312 x 1.080 pixels) and a notch in the form of a drop of water that allows it to achieve a 90% screen-front ratio.
As brain, we found the Kirin 710 processor of the Chinese firm, with four Cortex-A73 2.2 GHz cores and four Cortex-A53 1.7 GHz. That chipset is accompanied by 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage (expandable with a microSD card), Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9.0.1 as operating system and GPU Turbo 2.0 technology to improve game performance.
To all this we must add a fingerprint reader located on the back and a battery of 3,340 mAh that supports fast charging (9V / 2A); According to the company, it takes about 105 minutes to obtain a full charge and offers a range of up to 21 hours in conversation. Regarding connectivity, it has dual SIM, Bluetooth 4.2 and WiFi ac function, although it lacks NFC. What it does include are a USB-C port and a headphone jack.
The triple camera reaches the Lite
If in the P20 Lite we saw a double rear camera of 16MP + 2MP, Huawei has wanted to incorporate one more sensor in the most modest model of the P30 family. Thus, we have the main camera with LED flash consisting of:
A 24-megapixel sensor with a wide angle and aperture f / 1.8
An 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an ultra wide-angle lens
The third sensor of 2 megapixels responsible for the depth to, for example, achieve the bokeh effect by blurring the background.
The front camera, on the other hand, has increased its resolution, going from the 16 megapixels we had in the P20 Lite to the 32 megapixels with aperture f / 2.0 that its successor offers us. Both cameras, front and rear, have several shooting modes, digital zoom and video recording 1.080p (with stabiliser in the case of the rear).
Versions and prices of Huawei P30 Lite
According to the Huawei Singapore page, the Huawei P30 Lite comes in a single configuration with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, and in two colours: blue (Peacock Blue) or black (Midnight Black). It does not seem likely, but it could arrive in different colours or configurations to other countries.
The company, for the time being, has not confirmed the price or availability date of the Huawei P30 Lite, but Huawei Canada’s website has opened the reservation period with four retailers that advance that will cost 450 dollars, that is, about 399 euros to change (we repeat that it is not a confirmed figure). On that same page, it is clarified that said reservation period ends on April 10, so perhaps that could be the official launch date.
