On 18 May 2020, Huawei’s flagship lite device – the HUAWEI P40 lite – will be launching in South Africa. This is the first device in the HUAWEI P40 series to be available in the country, and there’s good reason its launch has received such hype. The HUAWEI P40 lite combines powerful performance with exceptional entertainment experiences, and is geared towards users who want a device that delivers both time after time.
If you are that kind of smartphone user, then you’ll be interested to read this list of the top five things you can expect from the HUAWEI P40 lite.
1. Higher performance, lower power consumption
A Kirin 810 chipset, which is manufactured with the world’s leading 7nm process, powers the HUAWEI P40 lite. This chipset offers lower power consumption, and delivers excellent performance and power efficiency. It also integrates advanced functionality to help drive the rapid graphics processing required by mobile games. The HUAWEI P40 lite packs a 4200mAh battery, which is enhanced by 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge support for longer battery life and faster charging.
2. A DSLR-quality photography experience
The HUAWEI P40 lite’s quad camera features a 48MP main lens, an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP bokeh lens. The result is a marvel: a camera capable of capturing wider, closer and clearer shots under almost any circumstances. The device’s new multi-frame composition technology intelligently combines multiple shots to create one optimised photograph, and its Super Night Mode 2.0 helps in low-lighting situations.
3. Gaming that is fluid and seamless
A superior gaming experience is one of the major differentiators of the HUAWEI P40 lite. The device makes use of the latest GPU Turbo technology to break the bottlenecks that hold back the GPU, CPU and EMUI. By enabling the software to work better with the hardware, the device’s processing efficiency is improved and, as a result, so is your gaming experience. The HUAWEI P40 lite supports many popular games, which it can run smoothly in high definition.
4. A better, sleeker and more visually focused design
The HUAWEI P40 lite’s 6.4-inch screen has a screen-to-body ratio of 90.6% and makes use of the HUAWEI Punch FullView Display to deliver crisp, vibrant colours. The four lenses of its exceptional camera demonstrate both design expertise and engineering muscle, and its side-mounted fingerprint power button allows you to lock and unlock it with ease. The HUAWEI P40 lite is available in Sakura Pink, Crush Green and Midnight Black.
5. An improved operating system
The HUAWEI P40 lite features Huawei’s latest operating system, the newly upgraded EMUI10. This upgrade offers cleaner aesthetics, including improved readability and fresh new colours, and a smarter and more intuitive user experience. Through EMUI10, the HUAWEI P40 lite also supports MeeTime, Huawei’s video calling feature, which delivers vastly improved image quality with lower Internet data usage.
Of course, the list of this smartphone’s impressive features is a lot longer than this, but the above should help to whet your HUAWEI P40 lite appetite. This Android device is the second phone with Huawei’s HMS ecosystem to be launched in SA and comes with the HUAWEI AppGallery, Huawei’s app store, which has a suite of local and global apps. Most of SA’s popular apps are accessible on the HUAWEI P40 lite.
The HUAWEI P40 lite will be available later this month from www.huaweistore.co.za and all mobile operators.
