Huawei P20 Lite Specs and Price

Huawei P20 Lite

Huawei P20 Lite is a trimmed down version of the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro but still offers decent value for money despite being a Lite version.

Huawei P20 Lite Quick Specs and Features

  • 5.84-inch, IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, 1080 X 2244 (432 ppi)
  • Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 CPU with 4GB RAM
  • 32GB/64GB built-in storage, up to 256GB with a memory card
  • Dual 16MP + 2MP rear camera and a 16MP front camera
  • 4G LTE
  • Fingerprint sensor (rear)
  • 3, 000mAh non-removable Li-Po battery

Design and Display

Despite being a mid-range smartphone, the Huawei P20 Lite retains the glass and metallic build of the more premium variants. Unlike the other smartphones, it has its own fingerprint sensor at the rear and an audio jack. Although it also comes with a notch at the top of the display just like the iPhone X, the notch is slightly smaller. The dual camera module protrudes from the rear panel with the flash below it and Huawei logo towards the bottom.

On the display end, the Huawei P20 Lite maintains the same Full HD resolution stretched into an 18.7:9 aspect ratio. Thus, the strange resolution of 2244 X 1080 pixels over a 5.84-inch display. This leaves you with a pixel density of 432 ppi and a nice display with good viewing angle.

Battery and Camera

You happen to have quite a drop, from 3, 750mAh featured on the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro to just 3, 000mAh on the Huawei P20 Lite. Nonetheless, the smartphone should be able to squeeze in a day of usage on minimal usage. On a good side, you can still charge using the fast charge technology through the USB Type-C port.

For photography, the Huawei P20 Lite employs a dual rear combo on the rear side. The smartphone has a 16MP main camera and a secondary 2MP camera on the rear side. Up front, you’ve got a 16MP selfie camera which also doubles as the Face ID feature.

Hardware and Software

Huawei settles for a HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset along with a Mali-T830 MP2 GPU that sorts out graphics on the device.

In addition to all of these, the smartphone has a 4GB memory space aligned with either 32GB or 64GBROM. However, there is a chance to expand up to 256GB with a memory stick if you want more space. It also happens to run on Android Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on the smartphone.

Pricing and Availability

The Huawei P20 Lite is available in a number of online stores for about 140, 000 naira with some probable added cost depending on your location and the deal.
