characteristics, price and technical sheet

23 mayo, 2021

In addition to the new Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer also takes the opportunity to present the new Huawei P20 Lite, a mid-range with the aesthetics of the flagship but more humble features.

The first thing that catches the attention of the new Huawei P20 Lite is the incorporation of the popular ‘notch’, a trend that almost all manufacturers are adopting and where Huawei not only adds it to its high range, but also to this premium mid-range that is located above the Huawei P Smart and is practically identical to the Huawei Nova 3e that we saw a few weeks ago.

In addition to offering us a body of contained size, we have a glass cover on the back that provides a really nice design. To this we will have to add a good amount of memory, storage and dual camera. Let’s see it in detail.

Huawei P20 Lite

The Huawei P20 Lite is a mobile with a 5.84-inch LCD panel and a resolution of 2,244 x 1080 pixels, which is equivalent to FullHD + in the unusual format 18,7: 9. A panel slightly longer than 18: 9 to incorporate that upper ‘notch’ that provides a somewhat larger screen in a body of the same size.

The back cover of the P20 Lite is made of liquid crystal and provides a very neat appearance. In the lower one we find port USB type C while the fingerprint reader is on the back.

Inside, they bet again on their own processor Kirin 659 that we have already seen in models of the brand such as the P Smart or the Mate 10 Lite. Accompany you 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage expandable by means of microSD, data that today begins to be basic even in the most affordable mid-range. Meanwhile, the battery is 3,000 mAh which includes a 9V / 2A charger for fast charging.

Dual rear camera and Android 8.0 Oreo

The photographic section of the Huawei P20 Lite is not even close to that of its older brothers. At the rear is added a double camera with a main sensor of 16 megapixel RGB and a secondary two megapixel to achieve the popular bokeh effect. The aperture is f / 2.2 and we also have autofocus and dualLED flash.

For its part, on the front we find a 16 megapixel camera and f / 2.0 aperture for selfies. A sensor that we will find in the ‘notch’ and will also help us to unlock it with our face.

As for the software section, here Huawei does not offer us great surprises. We will find Android 8.0 Oreo and its EMUI 8.0 customization layer.

Versions and price of the Huawei P20 Lite

The Huawei P20 Lite is now available in black, blue, gold and pink colors in selected markets at a price of 369 euros.

Upgrade: We mistakenly omit that the Huawei P20 Lite included SD memory card support, when it does. Sorry for bothering you.
