Huawei is reportedly gearing up to launch yet another phone in the P40 series and it will launch in Europe. According to the very known tipster Roland Quandt, this is going to be the P40 Lite 5G. The yet-to-come P40 Lite 5G is said to be the European version of the Chinese Nova 7 SE, just like the standard version that is a version of Chinese Nova 6 SE.
Well, keeping the naming aside, let’s dig into the leaked specifications and appearance of the P40 Lite 5G.
The 5G model of the Huawei P40 Lite is powered by Kirin 820 5G chipset and has Mali-G57 GPU instead of the G52. Also, it has 64MP as the main camera compared to the 48MP available on the P40 Lite. It can also shoot videos in 4K for even better performance. It has a 6.5-inch display compared to the 6.4-inch present in the non-5G variant, though 1080p+ Rest of the specifications are almost similar.
The Huawei P40 Lite and the P40 Lite 5G have different back designs. They both feature quad rear cameras but their arrangement is different. On the P40 Lite, we see four cameras housed in a square-ish module arranged in a 2x2 matrix format. And, on the P40 Lite 5G, the same number of camera sensors are aligned vertically in a strip-like fashion.
According to what is reported, the P40 Lite 5G will be available in most of Europe. Also, an official Huawei Mobile Services page for Italy mentions a promo that will give you a three-month premium subscription to Huawei Music.
