Huawei P20 Lite goes official in Europe, more pricier than the Nova 3E

Following the launch of the Huawei Nova 3E in China a few hours back, Huawei has today silently announced the Huawei P20 Lite for the European markets. It is worthy to note that the newly launched Huawei P20 lite is the same as the Nova 3E that debuted in China a few hours back, save for a slight variation in color options and a change in moniker.

While the Nova 3E is available in Huawei home country in Klein Blue, Midnight Black, Platinum Gold and Sakura Pink, those in Europe would get the Huawei P20 Lite in all Klein Blue, Sakura Pink, and Midnight Black, but won’t be getting the Huawei P20 lite in Platinum Gold.

The device will be available to buy at the end of the month from retail shops across Europe at 369 euros (~$452), which is far beyond the equivalent of what those in China would be doling out for the 128GB storage option.

Like we said, specs and designs are the same with the Nova 3E in China, and that includes a 5.84-inch full-HD+ display with 2.5D curved glass, 19:9 aspect ratio, the  Apple iPhone X type notch, a dual rear camera and of course a rear fingerprint sensor. The device is powered by the Kirin 659 chipset coupled with 4GB RAMand 64GB of native storage, expandable up to 256GB using microSD card slot. Unlike the Nova 3Ewhich is available in China in two storage variants, it appears Europe will be restricted to just 64GB option.

For optics, the Huawei P20 Lite gets a dual rear camera setup – a 16MP primary sensor with  f/2.2 aperture paired with a 2MP secondary shooter, while a 24MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and facial recognition sits within the display notch.

The device boots EMUI 8.0 UI based on Android 8.0 Oreo, while a 3,000mAh battery with fast  9V/2A charging.

    Wow, horrendous price! So they are selling a Kirin 659 chip, based on 16nm process, wich is on par with SD625 on performance, weaker in GPU, and less efficient, for 452$. Amazing!

      My thoughts too. They need a new chip to justify, not even 400$ but 300$. I mean, this thing is priced around the same as a Nokia 7 plus that is vastly Superior in all departments save for screen maybe. I mram snapdragon 660, Carl zeis optics, bigger battery and of course android one! Frankly speaking, this phone is overpriced at anything above 300$.
