Just over two months after launching the P40 Lite, HUAWEI has its launched 5G-ready sibling, unsurprisingly named P40 Lite 5G. Naming aside, this is an altogether different phone. Actually, scratch that! The HUAWEI P40 Lite 5G is, in fact, a rebranded Nova 7 SE that went official last month.

The HUAWEI P40 Lite 5G packs some serious firepower and also looks quite premium, thanks to the glass build and beautiful gradient finish on its rear panel. It has a 6.5-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch and is powered by the in-house Kirin 820 5G chip.

There is a 64MP camera at the back, sitting alongside an 8MP wide-angle lens and a pair of 2MP sensors for depth sensing and macro shots. The HUAWEI P40 Lite offers a 4,000mAh battery that supports 40W fast charging.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
