It’s almost here. The first device in the HUAWEI P40 series will soon be available in South Africa, and it’s everything you’d want it to be. The HUAWEI P40 lite is more elegant, more powerful, more sophisticated and more robust than its predecessors, and has been specifically engineered to offer an unparalleled entertainment experience. This device is also the second Huawei smartphone to launch in SA that comes with Huawei’s HMS ecosystem.
The smartphone is set to launch before Huawei’s P40 flagship models, the P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro+, which were revealed in March 2020.

Capture your world
With its 6.4-inch Punch FullView Display, 90.6% screen-to-body ratio and 48MP quad camera, this handset is all about creating and viewing high-quality visuals. The camera’s four lenses allow you to capture high-resolution, ultra-wide, macro and portrait shots that are so sharp and vivid, you’d be forgiven for confusing them with photographs taken by a professional camera.
Superior low-lighting and night images are also made possible by the 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.
Of course, the HUAWEI P40 lite doesn’t only cater for photographs. Its video functionality is of equal quality and comes 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.
The best way to game
The HUAWEI P40 lite is powered by the Kirin 810, a high-end 7nm chipset, which is integrated with a Mali G52 GPU that boasts excellent graphics processing capabilities. In addition, the 4200MAh battery and 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge support offer lower power consumption and long-lasting battery life.
These advances – as well as the device’s support for GPU Turbo, Kirin Gaming+ and HUAWEI’s Da Vinci NPU architecture – make it ideal for serious gamers. The device keeps up easily with the high frame rate of mobile games, dynamically watches any performance bottlenecks, and offers an in-game chat box (including WhatsApp) that means an end to interrupted gaming. The HD game effect enhancement also improves image quality, clarity and contrast to create a more immersive gaming experience.
But these words speak nothing of the real-life experience. To truly appreciate what the brand-new HUAWE P40 lite is capable of, you have to touch it, test it, experiment with it, and push it to its limits yourself. Pick up yours in Sakura Pink, Midnight Black or Crush Green* and experience the next level of Huawei precision.
The P40 lite will be available later this month from the www.huaweistore.co.za and all mobile operators.
