Huawei had launched its flagship P40 series in March this year. The lineup consists of a standard P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro+. Now, the Chinese smartphone maker has introduced a new device in the series dubbed as P40 Lite 5G.

However, it appears to be a rebadged version of the Nova 7 SE 5G announced last month in China. The P40 Lite is also a stripped-down variant of the standard P40.
