Huawei now also offers its new P40 Lite quad cam phone in Germany with the free Bluetooth earbuds FreeBuds 3 in the exclusive pre-order bundle. On Amazon there is also a 5 euro voucher.
In February there was an exciting deal for fans of the Huawei P40 Lite in Spain, which now also heralds the official pre-order phase in Germany. From now until April 6th, all customers of a P40 Lite residing in Germany (Huawei Austria does not currently offer a comparable promotion) will receive one of the new P40 Lite cellphones with a 48 megapixel quad cam for EUR 299.
This price also includes the FreeBuds 3 Wireless Bluetooth In-Ears, officially valued at around 179 euros, although it must be said that these earphones can be had in free trade from around 130 euros, so you actually pay for a P40 Lite in about 170 euros, which in view of what is offered goes through as a very good deal and is sweetened on Amazon Germany with a 5 euro voucher on top.
The Huawei P40 Lite is available in three colors in this country. It is based on the 7 nm Kirin 810 octacore SoC with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The rear 48 megapixel main camera is supplemented by 8 megapixel ultra wide-angle cam, 2 megapixel macro cam and 2 megapixel portrait camera. The selfie cam in the form of a display hole in the 6.4 inch IPS display shoots 16 megapixel selfies, the battery holds 4,200 mAh and is quickly charged with 40 watts. Sounds too good to be true?
Well, as probably every Huawei fan has noticed, due to the US sanctions, Huawei is no longer allowed to install Google services and apps. Not only are the Play Store, Google Maps, Google Pay, Gmail and Co. missing, but apps that are based on the Google infrastructure in one form or another are not currently running or are only going through detours. The App Gallery as a replacement app store offers a lot of alternatives, but currently neither Whatsapp, Netflix, Instagram or Facebook.
A subsequent installation of the Google ecosystem is not so easy and is not recommended by Google either. Of course, there remains a way out of downloading the aforementioned apps from alternative app stores, for example, because the US ban will soon make these US apps appear in the App Gallery. Even then, they would have to support Huawei Mobile Services for various interfaces, such as digital cards, something that not all developers are currently doing. So you should be aware of this when you are using new Huawei or Honor phones.
