Huawei P30 Lite Australia – Release Date, Price, Features, and Specifications

The Chinese biggest smartphone company has been producing some state-of-the-art and beautiful smartphones for a couple of years. And at the same time, corporation designers try to get improved their skills every single year – sometimes even going ahead of fashion trends. The newly announced P30 and P30 Pro are the examples and interestingly, Huawei P30 Lite Australia is no different. The handset has already been released in a plethora of regions and is available for the audience to get their hands on one with immediate effects.

As the name indicates, the handset throw-outs numerous key features from the premium smartphone P30 – but aims to retain a spirit of P30 series by offering ground-breaking design as well as high-quality rear and front cameras for detailed and colourful images. The P30 Lite has little in common with its siblings, apart from the teardrop notch and the colorful back designs. The specs are reduced to more middle-class interiors like the Huawei Kirin 710 mid-range chipset and a modest three-photo camera setup from the P30 and P30 Pro. However, competition is stiff in the budget market, thanks mostly to Huawei. However, the question is, does that phone have what it takes to stand out from a crowd? Let’s find out below!

Huawei P30 Lite Specs

The Huawei P30 Lite Specifications include an impressive amount of battery – 3340mAh, rear-mounted fingerprint scanner which works fast and accurately, three colours to choose from, triple rear camera configuration for stunning and crisp images and 6.15-inches perfect display for watching movies or playing games.

Huawei P30 Lite Design

The P30 Lite has a slim and light profile and looks like many Huawei phones launched recently. It has a curved 3D glass on the back which makes it sit more comfortably in your hand, but everyone is not a fan of the brilliant, cheaper look of the body. There is a super-fast fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone and an impressive camera bump with three sensors on the device.

The power button alongside volume rockers is holding its position on the right-hand side of the handset. They feel plastic and are the second indicator of the origin of the budget smartphone. At the bottom of the handset, you find a modern USB-C port and only a single mono-talk downward shooting layer that is clearly lower, but that can be ignored rather than a 3.5 mm headphone jack, where the wired headphones are connected.

It's available in vivid Peacock Blue colour, which goes from blue to violet and looks great with the Huawei gradient finish signature. The extended inverted S, which shimmers when it gets some light and makes the phone look more prime than it is - it is one of the striking features in the interior design. But the P30 Lite takes on fingerprints and smudges too easily with most glass backs that require regular wiping.

Huawei P30 Lite Display

You find a large full-HD 6.15 inches LCD that only takes up over 84 percent of the front when flipping it over. The bezels are quite small on both sides of the phone and the corners are perfectly rounded off. However, there is a little bit of a chin at the bottom.

Watching HD videos or playing games is an excellent experience. A budget smartphone with plenty of brightness, sharp quality but not too sharp, large color reproduction is astonishing. The dewdrop notch is much less intrusive as compared to the larger noises on other phones and remains out of the box for the most part.

The display is based on IPS Technology which might be not as impressive compared to Super AMOLED or QHD displays on higher-tier smartphones – offered by Samsung and other brands – but it punches quite great above its weight against most devices in this price mark.

Triple Camera Configuration

Shutterbugs are pleased to find the ability to set up a triple camera on the rear that includes a 24MP main sensor, which can capture bags of details, a 2MP depth sensor, for bokeh effects and an 8MP ultra-wide camera to screen more. The front snapper with a generous 32MP sensor is outstanding. It can capture many details and allows for quick selfies onboard AI embellishment. Although some people prefer this - but the processing is a little too much for many of us taste. You can also blur backgrounds by allowing the camera app to go bokeh or add depth after taking the photo.

EMUI 9 offers a multitude of AI effects and image acknowledgment to add a touch of flair, but photos usually look unnatural and over processed. Furthermore, the camera app is full of features and up to par with Huawei's higher-priced offerings. Even when much goes on and the bokeh is on the rear camera, the AI scene recognition is capable of identifying objects. The results are amazing, particularly when there is a lot of light but don't anticipate being blown away. Even with ample lighting, details and noise loss too often lead to unwanted murky blobs.

Performance and OS

Hardware shows the real budget nature of the P30 Lite. The Kirin 710 mid-range chipset from Huawei is found on phones such as Honor 10 Lite and Honor 8X. While the smartphone can keep up with day-to-day usage - but you shouldn't expect to jump between hungry power apps or to play tough games without hiccups sequentially. On the upshot, Huawei P30 Lite is running on Android Pie 9.0 out of the box with Huawei's own cleaned up EMUI 9 Skin. It includes several features that can make your life easier, including support for gestures, efficiency, and optimization of batteries and a nicer menu for settings that you can easily access.


The Huawei P30 Lite is rocked with a 3,340mAh battery and is connected with the 18W fast charge support. The battery of the Huawei P30 Lite is impressive during the day with a light to heavy use. Rapid battery charging can get from 0% to approximately 70% in an hour and it is enough juice to push you through the day if you run short on time in the morning.

Huawei P30 Lite Release Date

Huawei just released P30 and P30 Pro without a Lite model. Despite that, it’s now available to pre-order from numerous online stores all over the Philippines. The handset is already available to buy in India, China, UK, and some other European countries – but an official Huawei P30 Lite release date in Australia isn’t known, for now. Even, Huawei itself didn’t reveal when (or if) Lite model arrives on stores to buy. Putting an educated guess, it’s most likely to start holding its position on shelves somewhere in May 2019. Expecting a little delay wouldn’t be wrong, though.

Huawei P30 Lite Price

Very much like its official release date in Australia, Huawei P30 Lite Price in Australia is undecided as well. However, being an affordable member of Huawei P Series, it’s available at $300/£230 which after conversion comes to around AU$415 in Australia.

The handset is likely to come in single storage with a whopping 6GB of RAM to give you super-smooth performance while multitasking or playing games. It’ll be available in three sensational colours to choose from – Peacock Blue, Midnight Black, and Pearl White.

Where to Buy P30 Lite in Australia?

As mentioned above, it’s not yet official in Australia – but we are keeping an eye on it and doing our best to bring it here on this site for Aussies to compare their rates from well-known Australian stores and get their hands on one at unmatched rates alongside deals and discounts. Once, it’s available, you will then be able to find it using the search box. Initially, it’ll be available at the major stores i.e. Kogan, MobileCiti, JB Hi-Fi, and others.

The Bottom Line

Making a long story short and finishing this story off by saying that Huawei P30 Lite is a mid-range smartphone which comes with all the features one would want. The handset is making an ideal option since it’s delivering dazzling performance and worth each and every buck of its price. Talking about its triple camera, it captures excellent images with a lot of details and colours and battery backup is sound to keep it going all day long. If you don’t mind spending a few more bucks, it’s an ultimate option to go for without further ado.

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro Quick Overview

As a reminder, Huawei P30 comes with a 6.1-inches display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels whereas elder brother P30 Pro is equipped with 6.47-inches OLED screen – supported with 1080 x 2340 pixels. Digging down inside the handsets, P30 is loaded with HiSilicon Kirin 980 Chipset, partnered with Mali-G76 MP10 GPU and 6GB/8GB of RAM – while a Pro model has Huawei’s latest HiSilicon Kirin 980 Chipset – paired with Mali-G76 MP10 and the same amount of RAM – 6GB/8GB.

In terms of cameras, P30 comprises a triple 40MP + 16MP + 8MP rear cameras whereas P30 Pro is sporting a whopping four rear cameras, consist of 40MP + 20MP + 8MP + TOF 3D. Out front, on the other hand, both smartphones are having 32MP as a selfie snapper to capture selfies with your loved ones.

Both handsets are sporting an on-screen fingerprint scanner to give them security – but there is a difference in terms of batteries. Huawei P30 comes with 3650mAh non-removable battery to last almost a day long with a heavy usage whereas Huawei P30 Pro holds 4200mAh battery which promises to last even heavy users more than a day with ease. Fast charging feature is available with both handsets as well and both devices are available in five amazing colours to select from – Amber Sunrise, Breathing Crystal, Aurora, Black, and Pearl White.
