Huawei P40 Lite 5G arrives in Europe: Challenges iPhone SE with 5G Kirin 820 SoC and 64 MP quad camera for €399, but no Google services is a deal-breaker
Huawei rounded out its P40 family of smartphones by launching the Huawei P40 Lite 5G in Europe recently. The P40 Lite 5G will be available to buyers in Europe on May 19th for €399, a match for the recently-outed Apple iPhone SE.
The P40 Lite 5G is powered by an octa-core Kirin 820 SoC, powering past Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G chip in both CPU and GPU workloads. The midranger's quad camera setup delivers on the P40 lineup's great image quality, with a 64 MP primary lens. The device runs on Android 10, with Huawei's EMUI 10 skin on top.
However, because of the fallout between and Google, it will not feature Google apps and services. The lack of Google services here is likely to be a dealbreaker for what's otherwise a very well-rounded device with a quality camera, excellent performance and a robust 4000 mAh battery.
