Huawei P20 Lite will repeat the success of the P8 Lite. Will all Poles want to have it?
Poles love the Huawei P8 Lite. Why did I use such a strong verb here? It cannot simply be described in another way, because in our country alone this model has sold more than 1.55 million copies, which makes it the most popular phone of this brand on the Vistula River. Its successors and their various variants, incl. The P10 Lite, the P9 Lite Mini, they were pretty good. In fact, none of them came close to the progenitor’s results, but the new generation has a chance to at least match them.
No more small changes
Huawei P8, P9 and P10 did not make any special changes in appearance compared to previous models. However, it is difficult to correct something that already looks very good, but it cannot be denied that after a few years a revolution is necessary. This will be brought by the Huawei P20 family. We have already written about the flagship itself several times, and its most important element is becoming a triple camera. Now, however, the cheaper version has become the hero of the reports.
The Lite series is very popular, especially in a subscription, because that is when you can buy from their representatives at really attractive prices. Other than that, they are decent “average”. Looking at current market trends, I believe that the Huawei P20 Lite will be able to repeat the success of the P8 Lite and its sales in Poland will exceed the 1 million unit level.
A lot of possibilities
So what will be in the new model? First of all, a frameless screen with an aspect ratio of 18: 9 and Full HD + resolution – in the graphics, which supposedly represent it, we will notice a similarity to the iPhone X. In my opinion, copying this island on top of the screen is a bad idea. I can understand wanting to follow Apple, but why in this way and copy a very criticized element? I hope it turns out not to be entirely true.
Another novelty in the Huawei P20 Lite will be a dual camera. This should come as no surprise, because such a solution has made its way onto smartphones and everyone wants to try it. However, I wonder what details will appear here. Will the second sensor be monochrome or will it only record the depth of the image? The second variant is more realistic, it is cheaper to implement, but in terms of the quality of the photos, the first is much better.
In addition, a dual camera will also appear on the front. In my opinion, it will be an opportunity to distinguish the device from rivals that are gradually becoming too similar to each other. It is worth mentioning that, according to recent reports, the dimensions of this smartphone will be 148.6 x 71.2 x 7.4 mm (8.4, including the “hump” of the main camera). The screen will be approximately 5.7 inches.
All with care
Huawei P20 Lite will also be equipped with a battery with a capacity of 2900 mAh with support for fast charging technology, dual SIM and WiFi 802.11 b / g / n 2.4 GHz (probably also 5 GHz). Unfortunately, the processor used remains a mystery. It seems logical to use the proprietary Kirin 659, but I think such a model could use a new chip that will offer much higher efficiency. It is more reliable to use 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of data memory. It is impossible to forget that significant progress compared to the predecessor will mean something else: the price will no longer be at the same level as last time. I think this time the amounts of PLN 1599-1799 are much more realistic. Huawei aims high, also in this regard. At least there is hope that it will fall quickly, and traders will prepare really attractive offers with it.
