Huawei’s P40 family continues to grow. To the Huawei P40 Lite , P40 , P40 Pro and P40 Pro + we have to add a new brother launched today in Italy, which is none other than the Huawei P40 Lite 5G . It is relatively similar to the Huawei P40 Lite that we already have on the market, but as its name suggests, it has been updated with 5G connectivity thanks to the Kirin 820 5G processor .
Its price in Italy is 399.90 euros and, for the moment, there is no news of its arrival in Spain or other territories. Like all its siblings, the Huawei P40 Lite 5G arrives with EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 without the Google application ecosystem. It also mounts four rear cameras with a 64-megapixel main sensor and 4,000 mAh battery.

Huawei P40 Lite 5G A renewed design
Although in terms of specifications very similar to the Huawei P40 Lite, in terms of design there are some other variations, mainly in the rear. The Huawei P40 Lite has the cameras in a square module in the upper left corner, while the Huawei P40 Lite 5G has them arranged in a vertical format , more similar to what we have seen in the Huawei P40.
It is also somewhat larger, since its screen is 6.5 inches instead of the 6.4 inches that the original model mounts. In both cases it is IPS with FullHD + resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels). The internal camera has been placed in a hole in the upper left corner of the screen and the fingerprint reader has been moved to the right edge. It also has USB type C and headphone jack.
A new processor to give it 5G
We have the crumb inside the terminal since the Huawei P40 Lite 5G mounts the Kirin 820 5G, a processor presented at the end of March. This stands out for having the integrated 5G modem and for offering support for 5G NSA and SA networks, that is, current and future ones. As for gross power, it has eight cores divided into three clusters at 2.36 GHz, 2.2 GHz, and 1.84 GHz, respectively. This is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
The battery drops slightly to 4,000 mAh (the P40 Lite has 4,200 mAh), but it maintains the 40W SuperCharge fast charge. The operating system, as we said before, is Android 10 with EMUI 10.1, the latest version of the company’s customization layer. It should be noted that, due to the situation between the United States and China , the software does not have the Google application ecosystem.
More resolution for cameras
We ended up reviewing the photographic section since there are not only differences in the arrangement of the sensors, but also in the resolution of the main sensor. The Huawei P40 Lite has a 48-megapixel main sensor, but its 5G brother raises the resolution to 64-megapixels. Be that as it may, the effective photos will be 16 megapixels thanks to Pixel Binning technology.
The rest of the sensors remain unchanged. The main sensor is accompanied by a wide-angle lens with f / 2.4 aperture and eight megapixels of resolution, a two-megapixel f / 2.4 bokeh lens and a two-megapixel f / 2.4 macro lens . Not having a telephoto, when zooming we will be cropping. For stabilization, Huawei has implemented AIS (stabilized by artificial intelligence). The front camera doesn’t change either: 16 megapixel f / 2.0.
Versions and price of the Huawei P40 Lite
The Huawei P40 Lite can be purchased already in Italy at a price of 399.90 euros in black, silver and green. In Italy there is a promotion by which you can get FreeBuds 3i completely free. At the moment, there are no news about your possible arrival in Spain or other countries, but we will update if confirmed.
