Officialized by Huawei last March, the Huawei P40 Lite is now available in France. Here’s everything you need to know about this mid-range smartphone, which does not hide its ambitions.
Since the middle of March, it is possible to get the Huawei P40 Lite in France, just a few weeks after its release on Chinese territory. The manufacturer Huawei offers, here, a mid-range terminal at a very attractive price: 279.99 euros for a 6.4-inch model that has 128 GB of storage space, 8 GB of RAM, a Huawei processor Kirin 810 and a 4200 mAh battery, compatible with Huawei SuperCharge technology, which allows you to go from 0% to 70% of autonomy in just 30 minutes. The Huawei P40 Lite also benefits from a very advanced photo section, with a quadruple main camera.
A smartphone that cultivates its strengths, but also its differences, since the terminal frees itself from Android and uses the EMUI interface and Huawei Mobile Services. The Huawei AppGallery store allows you to download applications.
AppGallery and Huawei Mobile Services, to serve you
After the P40 and P40 Pro, the P40 Lite is the new Huawei terminal to operate via an improved EMUI interface, which highlights the Huawei Mobile Services, a set of features developed by Huawei to offer many services to users of its smartphones. . It includes Huawei Mobile Cloud, which allows you to store your photos, videos, contacts and any other file on a remote server to secure backups. The Huawei browser is dedicated to browsing the Internet, while the Huawei Assistant gives access, in the blink of an eye, to a lot of information such as news, sports results, stock market prices, etc. an experience that can be fully personalized. The Huawei Mobile Services suite is installed natively on the Huawei P40 Lite.
And among these services is AppGallery. This is the application distribution platform developed by Huawei: it replaces Google Play on its terminals in the P40 range. Although its catalog is not yet as exhaustive as that offered on Android, AppGallery is constantly expanding with new additions, and thousands of applications are already available for download, including dozens of essential apps, available on all other platforms. Huawei is also emphasizing the security of its platform: the applications submitted on AppGallery are scrupulously checked, to ensure that they are perfectly secure.
In fact, switching from a Huawei equipped with Android to a Huawei P40 Lite certainly requires a little time to adapt, but since Google Play and AppGallery have a lot of applications in common, the transition is proving less complicated than you might think. Especially since Huawei Mobile Services is also there to support the transition.
The photo, highlight of the Huawei P40 Lite
Huawei is used to focusing on the photo part of its different smartphones, and the P40 Lite is no exception. This model is equipped with a quadruple sensor present at the rear: there is a main sensor of 48 megapixels, an ultra wide angle sensor of 8 megapixels, a Bokeh sensor of 2 megapixels and a macro sensor of 2 megapixels. But Huawei goes beyond simple technical aspects, and embeds in the P40 Lite artificial intelligence dedicated to photography. The main 48-megapixel sensor takes advantage of Lossless Zoom technology which, as its name suggests, allows you to zoom significantly when taking pictures, without loss of sharpness and clarity. The AI HDR + function, also embedded in the rear photo part of the device, optimizes the lighting of photos. Finally, we can also cite the Night Shot mode, which optimizes the rendering of photos taken in low light for a detailed, and above all, natural rendering. This makes it possible to take successful shots with little effort.
The photo section on the front also benefits from the artificial intelligence developed by Huawei. Its 16-megapixel sensor takes advantage of the Super Night Selfie mode, for successful photos even in the dark.
The Huawei P40 Lite, a good price-performance ratio
By offering its new mid-range terminal for 279.99 euros, Huawei makes the P40 Lite even more attractive than it already is in terms of its specifications. Complete in terms of its functionalities, performing thanks to its on-board technologies and its latest generation components, the Huawei P40 Lite presents itself as an accessible alternative to smartphones of similar range offered by other brands, and even to more high-end terminals. . Huawei does not rest on its laurels and seeks, with the P40 Lite, to innovate and push its limits, to seek to make its differences assets for the service of the users.
