As we are expecting the Huawei P40 series to be unveiled on 26th March, the Chinese tech Gaint Huawei made a suprise move as they launched the Huawei P40 Lite in Spain. The phone design looks familiar with the Nova 7i placing a Quad Rear Camera at the back.
The Huawei P40 Lite is powered by the company’s HiSilicon Kirin 810 SoC. However, the phones software is built around the Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) core and not Google Mobile Services (GMS) core. This simply means that there will be no access to essential Google services like Play Store, Gmail, and Maps among others.
