But P20 Lite in 2019?
That title isn’t a typo. Huawei is releasing a follow-up phone to the P20 Lite that they released last year. It’s a completely distinct device from their new P30 Lite, which will probably add to the confusion of mid-range buyers everywhere.
That little niggle aside, the P20 Lite looks to be a mid-range phone for 2019. There’s a punch hole notch on the upper left, and the phone gets FOUR cameras on the rear along with the 16-megapixel camera on the front. There’s a 24-megapixel main shooter with a f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel camera along with two, 2-megapixel cameras. it’s unclear what the second 2-megapixel camera is for (one is clearly a depth sensor) so we’ll have to wait for the official unveil to find out.
The screen for the new phone is 6.4-inches and will have a resolution of 1080 x 2310. Huawei’s Kirin 710 will still power the device, and the phone will likely have 4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB storage options.
The phone will come in multiple colors as well and will have a 4000mAh battery. Android 9 Pie will also be on board, as well as EMUI 9.1. Other features include a USB Type-C port, fingerprint scanner, and a headphone jack.
The P20 Lite (2019) will be sold in Europe, and prices start at €280 for the 64GB variant. As with any phone with European pricing, if this particular device is sold in the Philippines it’ll more than likely have a lower price thanks to how taxes work in the West.
