The Huawei P40 Lite is a mid-range version of the company’s flagship P40, delivering high-end hardware and features at an affordable price.

“The Huawei P40 Lite is more elegant, more powerful, more sophisticated and more robust than its predecessors, and has been specifically engineered to offer an unparalleled entertainment experience,” Huawei said.

The smartphone boasts an almost bezel-less 6.4-inch FHD+ FullView display that has a 90.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Like its flagship counterparts, the P40 Lite has an impressive camera system, comprising four lenses, one of which is a 48MP high-resolution lens.

Huawei said that superior low-lighting and night photography is offered by both the front and rear camera systems, with its Super Night Mode 2.0 feature adjusting brightness and reducing noise in low-light photos.

The P40 Lite is then powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 810 chipset, which is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Other impressive features include an in-screen fingerprint sensor, and a 4,200mAh battery.

HMS and popularity in South Africa

One of the biggest differences between the P40 Lite and the previous-generation P30 Lite is the use of Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) on Android 10 instead of the GMS ecosystem.

This means that Google services will not run natively on the smartphone. Instead, the device will sport integration with Huawei’s ecosystem – including its AppGallery app store and Huawei cloud services.

Huawei has stated it will support customers who purchase HMS-powered smartphones with migrating to the new ecosystem, and it has partnered with a number of local companies to include support for their applications on its app store.

The P40 Lite still runs Android, however, which means that third-party APKs and app stores can easily be loaded onto the device.
