Description

Huawei P20 Lite hosts a 5.84" LCD screen with 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution, returning the robust 423ppi pixel density - well, apart from the top screen cutout, of course. The notch has allowed Huawei to keep the dimensions of the P20 Lite very, very compact. It also houses the 16MP selfie snapper and sensors that allow Huawei to implement a Face Unlock feature of sorts, logging in 96 face points. There is a 16MP main camera at the back as well, which is paired with depth-sensing 2MP shooter for "bokeh". Unfortunately, the middling Kirin 659 processor gets confirmed. There are no compromises with the memory situation, though, as the phone will ship in a 4GB/64GB setup, or with the software level, as it comes with the latest Android 8.0 Oreo.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 5.8 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1080 x 2280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 432 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
