Huawei has launched a new phone under their sub-brand Honor, the new all new Honor 8 Lite has just been launched. The Honor 8 Lite is priced at Rs. 17,999 and will be available across the nation via offline stores.
The Honor 8 Lite features a 5.2-inch full HD display protected by a 2.5D curved glass and the back also has the same 2.5D glass, the back of the phone looks beautiful, but also this glass finish makes the phone slippy.
Honor has taken some cost-cutting measures in Honor 8 Lite. The Honor had a dual camera setup in the rear but in the Honor 8 Lite, you will find only one single 12MP camera in the rear and an 8MP front facing camera.
It Lite is powered by Huawei’s very own Kirin 655 octa-core SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inbuilt storage. The storage can be further expanded by popping a microSD card into the hybrid slot instead of using the second SIM card.
The phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box with Huawei’s own EMUI 5.0 out of the box. Interesting, EMUI 5.0 comes first on the Honor 8 Lite and will arrive shortly on some other devices as well., The phone packs a 3000mAh battery, but no fast charging support has been provided this time.
Excited about the launch, Mr. P Sanjeev, Vice President- Sales, Huawei India Consumer Business Group said “The Honor 8 Lite is set to revolutionize the sub-20K segment. This phone is ideal for consumers looking for a power packed phone with stunning design. The 8 Lite is a refreshing change from the current selfie offing that run on outdated chipsets; and provides users a device that is awe-inspiring both in looks and performance. Running on powerful Kirin 655 octa-core chipset backed by a 4GB RAM+64GB ROM, running on the latest Android Nougat, the Honor 8 Lite, is the best smartphone choice for consumers.
“We and our channel partners are very excited to launch this product and are sure that the Indian offline consumer will fall in love on their first glance at the all-new Honor 8 Lite” he further added.
The Honor 8 Lite will be available in two colors- black and blue and will be available in retail stores for a price of Rs. 17,999. However initially, the consumers will see the black variant only and the blue one will be available later this month.
