Huawei’s rise over the years has been astonishing to say the least. The Chinese company’s ability to produce quality phones across different ranges at affordable prices has been very key to its success. Currently ranking number 2 in global smartphone sales, the company has announced that its first device in the Huawei P40 series is heading to our shores.
The Huawei P40 lite is said to be more elegant, more powerful, more sophisticated and more robust than its predecessors, and has been specifically engineered to offer an unparalleled entertainment experience. Until we get our hands on it we’ll have to take their word for it. The device will also be the second Huawei smartphone to launch in Mzansi coming with Huawei’s HMS ecosystem.
In terms of the specs, the Huawei P40 Lite comes packed with superior low-lighting and night images are also made possible by its Super Night Mode 2.0 feature, which is supported by both the front and rear cameras. This technology brightens dark areas, enhances skin tones and facial features, and reduces noise, creating crisp and beautiful shots of everything from starry skies to late-night selfies.
Video fanatics will also have a good time with this one with the video functionality coming packed with a powerful AI video editor to make editing easier. The video editor can intelligently trim footage, add background music, and easily incorporate various transition effects. The smartphone’s video editing tools enable you to shoot, edit and upload your videos and vlogs in a matter of minutes.

RAM: 8 GB.

It sounds like one impressive device indeed but in order to say for sure we’ll have to get our hands on it, properly touch it, test it, experiment with it, and push it to its limits. We’re hoping this is sooner than later. The P40 lite will be available in Sakura Pink, Midnight Black or Crush Green and be in stores later this month from the Huawei Store and all mobile operators.
