Design & Display
The HUAWEI P40 lite design emphasizes the essential, with no unnecessary gimmicks. The body is crafted from four-sided curved glass, so it feels as good as it looks. The front camera sits inside the 6.4″ HUAWEI Punch FullView Display, so there’s no wasted space, just a whole lot of beautiful screen. And with a side-mounted fingerprint design, you can unlock it with a single touch.
If there’s one thing better than a selfie, it’s an AI-powered selfie. The built-in front camera recognizes the lighting and shadows of your surroundings and uses this to produce selfies tailored exclusively to you. Take professional-looking portraits which accentuate the way you want to be seen.
Huawei P40 Lite has a lovely display on paper – it’s a 6.4″ LTPS IPS LCD unit with 2,310 x 1,080 pixels or 398 (PPI). The screen has a not so small punch-hole at the top left corner making way for the must-have selfie camera.
HUAWEI P40 lite comes loaded with the best interface yet, EMUI10. They’ve overhauled the design, with a cleaner, more intuitive layout and an elegant color scheme. Everything is just where it should be, and with natural transitions between menus, you can immediately get to where you need to be. Multi-task away!
Capture more of everything. With a 120°3 Ultra Wide Angle Lens, you get a better view of what fascinates you, and the 17 mm focal length captures 140% more scene. That means more neon in your cityscapes, more friends in your group shots, and more nature in your landscapes.
The world is full of beauty and wonder waiting for you to discover. With 4 rear cameras, HUAWEI P40 lite shoots wider, clearer, and closer than you ever could have imagined. Take cinematic portraits with the bokeh lens, then switch to the macro lens and snap super-detailed nature shots. All while using the same phone. It’s like having a professional studio in your pocket.
The f/1.8 big aperture and ½ inch larger sensor have been designed to let in extra light, so you don’t have to stop snapping, even when the sun goes down. Thanks to HUAWEI AI Image Stabilization technology, Handheld Super Night mode cuts through the noise and gives you greater dynamic range, for sharper, crisper photos.
Software, Hardware & Performance
A 2 MP macro lens brings you closer to your subject than you’ve ever been. Shoot from as close as 4 cm, and own the power to capture patterns and textures in phenomenal detail. From the dewdrops on a petal to the intricate markings on a butterfly’s wings, taking macro photographs is like discovering a secret world of detail.
The Huawei P40 Lite is the second smartphone we meet utilizing the HiSilicon Kirin 810 SoC – Huawei’s latest mid-range chip and we already know this one is a beast in the mid-range bracket.
On the software side, Kirin 810 chipset is manufactured on TSMC’s 7nm process and is a notable upgrade over the Kirin 710. It has a different octa-core processor with newer cores – there are 2x Cortex-A76 clocked at 2.27GHz and 6x Cortex A55 ticking at 1.8GHz.
The GPU though is probably the most interesting part – it’s a six-core Mali-G52 up from the 710’s four-core Mali-G51.
The dedicated bokeh lens harnesses the power of AI depth perception to create a shallow depth of field, softening the background and juxtaposing it with the sharp detail of your subject. Perfect for when you want to make things really pop.
The Huawei P40 Lite boots the new EMUI 10, which is based on Android 10. It was stripped of all Google services and has no access to the Play Store. Instead, Huawei offers its new proprietary Mobile Services complete with Huawei’s AppGallery.
The Huawei P40 Lite has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and it’s among the best in terms of speed and accuracy. Face Unlock is surprisingly not available.
Like all EMUI-driven devices, you can set up a magazine lock screen style that changes the picture every time you wake up the screen. Sliding from the bottom will bring out quick shortcuts to some commonly used utilities.
With its 4,200 mAh large battery, you’ll get through the day on a single charge.5 But even if you do forget to put it on charge during the night, don’t sweat it. Plug it in while you’re having your morning coffee, and it’ll be ready to go in no time, thanks to the TÜV Rheinland certified 40 W HUAWEI SuperCharge, which recharges up to 70% of battery in 30 minutes.
