Huawei brings Honor 8 Lite to Asia

With a metal finish all around, the device looks premium in its category.

Honor 8 Lite is a sleek-looking smartphone and is heavily inspired from Honor 8's all-glass design.

The Honor 8 Lite will be available in Premium Black color initially, followed up by blue color later this month. It is powered by the Kirin 960 SoC clocked at 2.4GHz Quad-Core processor with Mali G71 Octa-core GPU and packs a whopping 6GB of RAM with 64GB internal storage with a microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 128GB.

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. Unlike the original Honor 8, which featured a dual rear camera setup, Honor 8 Lite settles for a 12-megapixel shooter on the rear. The company has brought the 4GB RAM, 64GB storage variant of the smartphone to India. The phone also has a fingerprint sensor on the back and it has the special features that the EMUI offers apart from unlocking the phone.

The Honor 8 Lite will be available with Android 7.0 (Nougat) and EMUI 5.0 and will be the first device from Huawei Honor to come out of box with this update. The 8 Lite is a refreshing change from the current selfie offing that run on outdated chipsets; and provides users a device that is awe-inspiring both in looks and performance. On the front is an 8MP sensor with a 77-degree wide-angle lens.

The smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 2.5D curved glass on top.
