Huawei will be officially unveiling the flagship P20 and P20 Pro smartphones on March 27th in Paris, France. In the last couple of weeks, we have seen several leaks about the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro along with the P20 Lite smartphone. Now, the Huawei P20 Lite is officially unveiled in the Czech Republic. The device will be sold for CZK 8,999 (approx $435 / Rs. 28,300) and comes in Klein Blue, Midnight Black, and Sakura Pink color options. It is currently available to pre-order and sales will begin from April 1st.
As seen in the leaks, the design of the P20 Lite looks similar to the Apple iPhone X with the display notch on the front and vertical dual camera setup on the rear. The Huawei P20 Lite sports a glass sandwich design with a metal frame. It runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 out of the box. On the front is a 5.84-inch Full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) IPS display with 19:9 aspect ratio. The notch on the top of the display holds the earpiece, front camera, and other sensors.
Under the hood, it comes powered by the in-house Kirin 659 octa-core processor clocked at 2.36GHz. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. In the camera department, the P20 Lite sports a 16MP + 2MP dual camera setup on the rear and a 16MP single camera on the front. Unlike the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, there is no Leica branding on this device. It is backed by a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery and is mentioned to support fast charging technology via a USB Type-C port.
The power button and volume rocker are placed on the right edge of the device. Apart from the rear-facing fingerprint sensor, the device also comes with face unlock for authenticating. The P20 Lite measures 148.6 x 71.2 x 7.4 mm and weighs 145 grams. Connectivity options include 4G LTE, W-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB type-C port.
