What’s more, the company’s latest midrange phone will be available for preorder in the Philippines beginning March 27.

This latest information comes from the online store of Abenson, a major retailer of home appliance and consumer electronics here. The Chinese Nova 4e has two variants — one with 4GB RAM and 128GB of storage, priced at ¥1,999 (around P15,633 or $298), while the 6/128GB storage sells for ¥2,299 (P17,979 or $343).

The P30 Lite will be the direct successor to the P20 Lite, which was originally priced at P15,990 ($305) in the Philippines. Having said that, it wouldn’t surprise us one bit to hear that the base P30 Lite will carry the same price tag as last year’s model. The 6/128GB version might cost P17,990 ($343) at launch, if it does arrive here.

For the price, you’re looking at a potentially appealing camera phone equipped with a 32-megapixel front camera and three rear cameras. The back-facing system includes a 24-megapixel camera for everyday photogprahy, an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for bokeh. The system will also get assistive AI features that should make your pictures look better.
