For Huawei last year, the Huawei P20 Lite turned out to be a pretty decent seller. So much so that it deserved a successor, the Huawei P30 Lite, just a couple of months ago. But in an apparent attempt to further capitalize on the success of Huawei P20 Lite, another replacement model is under development.
Called Huawei P20 Lite (2019) and scheduled to be released in the near future, the leaked information suggests that the next generation model will resume adopting a 5.84-inch LCD display. This time, however, it is expected to get rid of the notch in favor of a more modern looking punch in the upper left corner and a smaller chin.
Similar to the original smartphone, today’s leaked renders suggest that the 2019 edition will adopt a glass panel on the back and a fingerprint scanner mounted on the back. But instead of being satisfied with only two rear cameras, the budget device seems to adopt four individual sensors. The details on this configuration are still minimal at this time, but it is expected that the main camera will offer a resolution of 24 megapixels, while another must be a sensor dedicated to flight time.
All this will accompany a series of internal updates. The Kirin 659 model found in last year’s model will finally be replaced by the much more recent Kirin 710. This chip will be combined with 4 GB of RAM and a minimum of 64 GB of storage instead of 32 GB. Support for microSD cards are also expected and, as they say, another advantage is a more expensive variant with 128 GB of storage.
Completing the configuration should be Android 9 pie directly from the box with a 3,000 mAh battery. The smartphone is also said to include 4G LTE support and Bluetooth 5.0.
It is not clear at this time exactly when Huawei P20 Lite (2019) will be released, but once done, the device should be sold in a range of three colors including Midnight Black, Chrush Blue, and Charming Red. At prices, the information suggests that it will start at €279 ($313).
