What is the Huawei P30 Lite?

The Huawei P30 Lite is the affordable sibling to the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro – according to Huawei the P stands for photography, and while the P30 Lite doesn't have quite the same camera capabilities as its bigger alternatives, it still has a pretty impressive array.

This consists of a 24MP main sensor, 2MP depth sensor to take shots with a bokeh effect, and an 8MP camera with an ultra-wide lens. That's joined with a 32MP selfie camera, and together they can take quite impressive shots.

Some of the other features of the phone include a Kirin 710 chipset, 3,340mAh battery, and Android 9 operating system.

The design of the phone boasts a 6.15-inch Full HD display, headphone jack, USB-C port, and, like Huawei's other phones, an interesting s-pattern rear design. It's the cameras that are the real draw to the phone, though.
