Earlier this month, we saw renders allegedly showing the unannounced Huawei P20 Lite
, a smartphone that will probably be unveiled on March 27
(alongside a regular Huawei P20
, and a P20 Plus
). Now, thanks to Venture Beat, we can take a look at what seems to be a real photo depicting the Huawei P20 Lite
- see above.
As the aforementioned renders have shown, the most noticeable design element on the P20
Lite is its notch (à la Apple iPhone X
) that sits at the top of its display. According to Venture Beat, this display is a 5.6-inch one with an 18:9 aspect ratio and 1080 x 2250 pixels. On the back, the new Huawei smartphone has a fingerprint scanner and a dual 16 MP camera with a single LED flash.
Reportedly, the P20 Lite is powered by an octa-core Huawei-made Kirin 659 processor (comparable to Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 630), further featuring 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, and a generous 3520 mAh battery - hopefully, this battery can last at least one full day on a single charge. The new handset will run Android 8 Oreo out of the box, customized with Huawei's EMUI 8.0.
The P20 Lite should be the cheapest model from Huawei's P20 smartphone family. However, for now, exact pricing details are not available. We'll know more about Huawei's new devices on March 27, when we're likely going to find out if the company plans to sell any of them in the US.
