The Huawei Mate 20 Lite runs the latest EMUI 8.2, which launched a few month ago. It has learned a new trick - 3 app multitasking, which is a 3-way split of the screen. We'd say that's a bit much, but on a 6.3" screen you can make it work.
The power to run so many apps at a time comes from the new Kirin 710 chipset. It features four Cortex-A73 cores (2.2GHz) and four A53 cores (1.7GHz). That's quite similar to the Kirin 970, save for the lower clock speeds.
The graphics power comes from a Mali-G51 MP4 and it supports Huawei's GPU. Only PUBG and Mobile Legends are supported for now, but more game developers will adopt the tech as time goes on.
Still, there's no escaping the fact that the Honor line has multiple offerings with the full fat Kirin 970 chipset that offers a significantly more powerful GPU.
The Kirin 710 has the NPU engine that powers all of Huawei's AI features.
The Huawei Mate 20 Lite will first be available on September 5, but Europeans will have to wait a couple of more weeks. The pricing for the UK is £380, which should translate to €420 on the mainland.
