Huawei P40 Lite E, the budget smartphone at less than 200 euros

The P40 Lite E is a new low-cost smartphone from Huawei. On board the HiSilicon Kirin 710F chipset with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory

The cheapest Huawei smartphone of the moment is called P40 Lite E, it joins the P40 Lite and, since a few hours, has also landed in Europe at a really low price. The confirmation comes from Poland, where the smartphone has appeared on the regional site of Huawei.

It was not at all obvious that Huawei would bring to Europe its latest low cost cell phones, already on sale in Asia for some time: the well-known ban of the United States against the company and the debate, also in Europe, on the role that Huawei may have in the development of the 5G network have put the Chinese manufacturer in a bad light and have put more than a stick in the wheels. But Huawei goes ahead anyway and, the P40 Lite E arrives on the first European market without Google's mobile services, but with Huawei Mobile Services on board to replace them. We'll see, in a few weeks, if the users of the old continent will want to buy this Android smartphone with good features, great price but without the official support of Google.
