Huawei’s Upcoming P20 Lite (2019) Has A Big Screen, Big Battery

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.

  1. Huawei did something like this a couple of years ago, in Europe they refresh the year of the model instead of making new model names if it’s really popular. Just marketing and it seems to work for them.
