Honor 8 Lite: Unveiled design, power and price

  • by

The Honor 8 is one of the terminals of the second most successful Huawei brand. And no wonder, as it offers a nice design with high-end features at a lower price than the top of the market. With this in mind, it was logical that sooner or later Honor launched a cropped version of its flagship. And this has happened. The Honor 8 Lite has appeared in some photos in high definition, we can see its design. But not only that, we also know what features it will have. Let’s review what can offer the Honor 8 Lite.

Honor 8 Lite

Sober design
Huawei is not a sole company that stands out for their bold designs. Virtually all the smartphones made by the Chinese company are very similar. The same applies to the Honor 8 Lite, which looks almost identical design to the newly appeared Huawei P8 Lite. If the photos do not cheat us, it have a terminal with metal frames and glass in both the front and back. At the front it has a screen with slightly curved frames. At the rear, only highlight the small camera lens, located on the upper left, and the fingerprint reader located in the center.

The full dimensions of the terminal would be 147.2 x 72.94 x 7.6 mm, with a weight of 147 grams. The Honor 8 Lite will be available in four colors: black, white, gold and beautiful bright blue that we saw in the Honor 8.

Good technical set
If in design the Honor 8 is virtually identical to the last terminal of Huawei, the same applies to the technical section that is traced to the Huawei P8 Lite. To begin with, it has 5.2 inch display with Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The density remains at 424 dpi.

The processor is also the same a HISILICON Kirin 655 with eight core, 2.1 GHz quad core and 1.7 GHz quad core and a Mali-T830 MP2 graphics card. Accompanying this processor found 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, which can be extended by using a microSD card.

As for the photographic section, it has a main camera of 12 megapixel with f/2.2 apertures. Understand that will be the same that offers the Huawei P8 Lite, which has a greater pixel size (1.25 microns) and LED flash. The front camera has a sensor of 8 megapixel, and if it is the same one that incorporates the Huawei terminal, will also auto focus system.

And since it could not perform another form, it also has the same battery capacity as the Huawei terminal. The Honor 8 Lite will offer a battery of 3,000 milliamps. As for connectivity we do not have too much information, the photos do not reveal what type of connector has decided to use the company, but normally would be a USB Type-C. The chosen operating system seems to be Android 7.0 Nougat.
