The Huawei P40 Lite 5G packs a 4,000 mAh battery which is a downgrade from the 4,200 mAh unit on the P40 Lite.‌ But on the flip side, the phone does offer 40W fast charging which is capable of providing 70% of charge in 30 minutes, according to Huawei.

In terms of connectivity, the phone supports Bluetooth 5.1, dual-band WiFi, USB Type-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, and 5G support. The phone comes running EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10 sans Google apps.

If that design and spec sheet looks familiar to you, then you’re not mistaken. The Huawei P40 Lite 5G is simply a rebranded version of the Huawei Nova 7 SE that launched in China last month.

The Huawei P40 Lite 5G comes in three colors: Space Silver, Crush Green, and Midnight Black. It’s available for pre-order right now and will go on sale across Europe starting May 29 for a price of €400 (~$430).
