Huawei has unveiled its new P30 smartphones at an event in Paris, with the line-up including a P30 Lite device.
The P30 Lite is the next iteration of the popular mid-range P Lite series.
This device is especially popular in South Africa, with the P20 Lite dominating its pricing sector in the local market since launch.
The new smartphone will offer a 32MP selfie camera and ultra-wide triple-camera system at a very attractive price point.
The P30 Lite also packs a Kirin 710 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and features an IPS LCD display instead of the OLED panels included on the high-end P30 and P30 Pro.
Huawei has also opted to include a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back of the P30 Lite smartphone instead of an in-screen fingerprint sensor like the one on the premium models.
The device still sports a similar physical design to the flagship models however, along with various flagship features: such as a bezel-less display and tiny notch at the top of the screen.
Like its premium counterparts, the P30 Lite includes a triple-camera system equipped with 24MP, 8MP, and 2MP lenses.
At the time of writing, local pricing for the P30 Lite listed online was R5,699.
