The Huawei P20 Lite 2019 is coming after all, as WinFuture shared a bunch of information regarding the phone. Roland Quandt actually said last month that the phone is on the way, and this information more or less confirms that.
Needless to say, the name of this phone is quite confusing and odd, as the P20 series of devices became official in 2018, so… why not just launch more variants of the Huawei P30 and be done with it. In any case, it seems like this phone is happening, and it will be interesting to see if Huawei will share its logic behind naming this phone.
This will essentially be an upgraded version of the original P20 Lite, says the source, even though it will look different. The Huawei P20 Lite 2019 will include a display camera hole, and not a display notch, while it will also sport more cameras on the back.
The phone will sport really thin bezels, and its display camera hole will sit in the top-left corner of its display. The phone will also include a thin “chin” below the display, and its display will sport rounded corners.
A regular, capacitive fingerprint scanner will sit on the back of the phone, while Huawei’s branding will also be present back there. The source actually shared three color variants of the P20 Lite 2019, Midnight Black, Crush Blue, and Charming Red, all of which you can check out in the gallery down below.
So, what about its specifications? Well, this will be a mid-range phone, and it will be fueled by one of the company’s best mid-range processors, it seems, the Kirin 710. The phone will include a 5.84-inch fullHD+ LCD display, just like the original P20 Lite.
Bluetooth 5.0 will be included in the package, while the device will ship in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. The phone will also offer memory expansion via a microSD card. One of the cameras on the back will be a 24-megapixel unit with an f/1.8 aperture lens, and that will probably be the phone’s main sensor. The source did not share any other camera-related info.
A 3,000mAh battery will be included in this package, and it will not be removable. The phone’s frame will not be made out of metal, it seems, but plastic, which will also help keep its price tag down.
As far as pricing is concerned, the source does not really have specific info just yet, but it did say that the phone’s price tag will range between €280 and €330 in Europe. He did say that some retailers are already listing this phone in Switzerland and Italy, so this pricing estimate is probably accurate.
It is still unclear when will this phone become a reality, but considering that listings are popping up all over the place, and the fact that the source had so much info to share, the phone will probably launch really soon, probably in the next couple of weeks. It will launch in Europe first, it seems, but we’re only guessing.
