As this is a camera-centric device, the Huawei P30 Lite also boasts of a triple rear camera setup seen on its brothers. So we have a 24MP autofocus sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP sensor with Ultra Wide Angle lens and a 2MP depth sensor for better bokeh images.

The smartphone is juiced by a 3340mAh battery which has fast-charging support and is non-resistant to water and dust. However, it features support for an 18W charger compared to 22.5W on the P30 or P30 Pro.

Talking of Connectivity options, it includes 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth v5.0, USB Type-C, and A-GPS.

The smartphone packs in almost all the features present in the P30 and the P30 Pro but it lacks Face Unlock and includes an external fingerprint sensor instead of an in-display one.
