In terms of design, the mid-range Honor 8 Lite looks very similar to its younger sibling the Honor 8. Details of its pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but we do know that it will come in black and blue color options.

On the front is an 8MP sensor with a 77-degree wide-angle lens.
