This year, Huawei chose not to present the budget variant of their P series together with their high-end devices, instead quietly releasing it later on. This is a big change from last year with their P20 series, as the P20 Lite was up for sale in some countries even before the official announcement of the P20 and P20 Pro.

In any case, the P30 Lite looks very similar to any other Huawei budget smartphone and shares similar specs with the Mate 20 Lite. We find the same style as with the P Smart 2019, being a water-drop notch and the fingerprint reader on the back. This time, the manufacturer decided to go for 3 cameras, instead of 2.

The specifications of the P30 Lite are as following:

  • Kirin 710 (AI capabilities)
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 128GB of internal storage, expandable with microSD cards up to 512GB
  • 6.15” FHD IPS LCD display, with 2312×1080 pixels resolution, notch
  • 152.9×72.7×7.4 mm, 159 grams
  • Fingerprint reader on the back, facial recognition
  • Front (32MP)
  • Triple camera setup:
    • 24 MP, f/1.8, wide angle lens
    • 8 MP, f/2.4, ultra-wide angle lens
    • 2 MP, f/2.4, bokeh lens
  • 3 340mAh battery, USB Type-C Charger, 18W QuickCharge, full charge in around 105 minutes
  • EMUI 9.0.1/Android 9.0
  • Usual connectivity options, Bluetooth 4.2, Double nano-SIM (on some models)
  • Headphone jack
  • No NFC support
  • Available in 3 colours: Midnight Black, Peacock Blue and Pearl White
  • The price is as follows:
    • 4GB+128GB for 370€

The device is still not available in Europe, with no release date announced. Some shops, such as Orange Belgium, already have the device up on their website, although no information on release date is given. The price is expected to be the same as with the P20 Lite, being 370 euros.
