The Huawei P30 Lite has been announced already. The pre-order page went live a couple of months ago so we’re assuming a lot of people have the new Huawei phone. The Lite variant has joined the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro duo. The P30 Lite should be enough but the top Chinese OEM is believed to be launching a 2019 model of the Huawei P20 Lite. Obviously, it will be an improved version of the Huawei P20 Lite from last year.
The reason for this 2019 version isn’t clear but we believe Huawei wants to offer more choices to the public. Upgrading the specs and features is easier as compared to coming up with a new smartphone with a fresher design.
The 2019 Huawei P20 Lite is only a mid-range device. It can be another bestseller since it’s from the Chinese OEM. Source of this information is WinFuture which we all know has a lot to say about future mobile devices entering the market.
Huawei’s P20 Lite 2019 will have the 5.84-inch FHD+ LCD screen, Bluetooth 5.0, Kirin 710 processor, LTE, 4GB RAM, 64GB or 128GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot. This one though comes with a camera hole instead of a notch to hide the selfie camera.
Early image renders of the Huawei P20 Lite 2019 have been shared online. They give us a glimpse of the phone with a camera hole on the upper left corner front display. The shape and curves of the phone will remind you of most Huawei phones.
There is no metal frame since it’s only mid-range. Expect a plastic build with a powerful 3000mAh battery. The antenna band cutout isn’t there.
Choose from the three color options: Chrush Blue, Charming Red, and Midnight Black. Pricing may start at €280 ($315) and reach up to €330 ($370). Retail stores in Switzerland and Italy have listed the new phone for 279 francs and 29 euros, respectively.
