Huawei launched P40 Lite in February. The cheapest P40 smartphone came with Kirin 810 SoC, meaning the device was not 5G supported. A few days earlier, a device called P40 Lite 5G was speculated to launch in Europe. And now, Huawei has silently added the device to the official website. We now have specifications as well as the price tag for the new 5G mid-range smartphone.
Huawei P40 Lite 5G Specifications:
Huawei P40 Lite 5G is a re-branded Nova 7 SE, which is already available in China. P40 Lite 5G features a 6.5-inch FHD+ display, but hey something is interesting. Surfing through the official specifications page, it says the device has an OLED panel. Whereas the display on Nova 7 SE is IPS, it probably seems like a typo mistake.

Anyway, moving forward the device features a 64-megapixel primary sensor paired with an 8-megapixel ultrawide shooter, 2-megapixel depth sensor. And finally an additional 2-megapixel sensor for macro shots. On the front side, a punch-hole notch is housing a 16-megapixel shooter for selfies.
P40 Lite 5G comes with a new Kirin 820 5G chipset, paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Kirin 820 5G offers a 27% CPU performance boost as well as a 40% GPU performance upgrade over the Kirin 810 used on the P40 Lite. The device is backed up by a 4000 mAh battery with 40W fast charging. The device will be able to charge 70% in just 30-minutes as advertised by Huawei. P40 Lite 5G will come out of the box with Android 10, and sadly no GMS.
Huawei P40 Lite 5G Price:
The device is available starting at €400. The variant comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Crush Green, Space Silver, and Midnight Black are the color options for the device. P40 Lite 5G is now available for pre-order in Europe while official sales will start from May 29. You will also get the Huawei FreeBuds 3 when you buy the HUAWEI P40 lite 5G.

Good specced for its price, but Huawei should ditch that Samsung-trend ugly punch hole, use pop-up instead for fullview experience.
