Huawei Finally Launches the Honor 8 Lite

A few days back, Huawei posted details regarding its Honor 8 Lite so discreetly that many of us thought it was a fluke. As it stands, the phone has remained available on the company’s Finnish site.

The front of the phone features a 5.2-inch curved 2.5D display with 1080p resolution. The design is based on its older Honor 8 sibling, with the same 15-step glass build.

Under the hood, you get a 64-bit octa-core Kirin 655 chipset, home-baked by Huawei. The amount of RAM is set at 3 GB, with storage set at 16 GB which is expandable.

The camera on the back is downgraded from the fancy dual-camera setup, to a solitary 12 MP f/2.2 shooter with LED Flash. Below it also sits a fingerprint scanner. There is also an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera on the front.

The Honor 8 Lite comes with Android 7.0 Nougat with Emotion UI 5.0 on the front. The battery capacity is set at 3,000 mAh, which is not removable.

The phone is up for pre-order at $292 in Finland, or $100 cheaper than its sibling (which is every bit worth those bucks). It will be available in Black, White, Gold and Blue.

          Ye Sub Used Main Inhi Price Main Mill Jayegi

          • Yasir Mahmood

            Suggested Phones are Galaxy S6, G5,(24~26k approx)
            Although wont come under warranty ,but samsung one’s is still way better in terms of resell

            • Samsung Ki Bhi Ab Itni Achi Resell Nahi Hoti
              I was bought S5 last 2 years worth PKR 22,000 (Gold) now 15,000 approx.
              Bus Ab Market Competition bohat zaida hai Is liye itni achi price nahi milti

        • Chilasia

          check honor 6x with kirin 655, dual cam (12 MP+2MP) and front 8MP, 3 GB ram, 32 gb rom (available in market in 26-28k).

          beware that most of huawei midrange phones come with hybrid slots (either two sims or one sim and card)

    • 3GB RAM can be used for 1 year but 16GB Storage in not acceptable.

      • waqar hussain

        I think huawei allows to set SD card as default.

        • umer

          Its android marsmallow function not huawei

    • 32GB Card Sasta Ho Gaya Market Se Le K Laga Lena !

      • waqar hussain

        Class 10 High Speed SD cards are good and cheap too.

  • Ye Howi Na Bat !

    • NASEEB

      aperture is 2.0. SONY IMX.386 sensor is used in it.

  • knucker

    Galaxy J7 Prime in this range is a killer with 3GB ram and 32GB internal ROM. also have the dual sim and a 32GB card slots and they are separate. not to mention that also have fingerprint sensor.

  • Muhammad Yasir
