Huawei, the second largest smartphone seller globally, has today launched three smartphones in Kenya namely the Huawei P30 Lite, P30, and the P30 Pro. These devices appeal to different market segments, and thus the phone that appeals to us is the most affordable Huawei P30 Lite. That’s because the Lite version of Huawei P30 series not only packs great features that many young enthusiastic Kenyans find useful, particularly features surrounding AI Camera functionalities and professional selfies, but also offers these features at 30% the price of the High end hi-tech Huawei P30 Pro. The pro version is meant for the professionals looking forward to using a smartphone for productivity.
That means, if you are an ordinary Kenyan who simply wants to get a great modern day tech for making calls, taking selfies or even great landscape, portrait, cat, flower, and other scenery photos, the the Huawei P30 Lite is the phone you need to ogle at. These phones have been launched at Kapenski Nairobi.

Pre-orders for the other versions are also ongoing, where the Huawei P30 Pro can be pre-ordered for Kshs 98,999 instead of Kshs 99,999 whereas the Huawei P30 is available on pre-order for Kshs 71,999 instead of Kshs 72,999.
If you are wondering if your favorite color is available, well I don’t know. This is because Huawei P30 Lite comes in three colours and these are Black, Blue and White. I am a black guy so I am covered. Those of you who prefer gold, silver or red tints are not lucky but hopefully either of the three available colours will suffice your taste.
Before I leave you with the raw specs below, it is important to mention that the strength of the Huawei P30 series is the abandonment of the RGGB pixels in favor of RYYB pixel arrangement at the camera sensors – which means Huawei has taken a bold move to totally rewrite the rules of photography. In the next few weeks we will be putting the Huawei P30 Lite to road tests and specifically to put these sensors to their
