Honor 8 was already a sort of re-branded, slightly detuned version of the dual camera-laden Huawei P9. And now we have Honor 8 Lite, which completely drops the dual cameras.
The Honor 8 Lite, however, carries the same eye-pleasing design. It looks stunning in that Blue color. More than anything, it will be known for its design. The 2.5D glass on the front as well as its back with 12 layers lend the looks.
The spec sheet of Honor 8 Lite is a completely reflects its name. The Kirin 655 has replaced the Kirin 950 in the original Honor 8 in Honor 8 Lite, which is a mid-range processor. However, you still get 4GB RAM. It’s the same configuration found in the cheaper and dual camera equipped Honor 6X. You get 64GB of onboard storage. The 3,000 mAh does the task of keeping it running. The 5.2-inch display has the FullHD resolution.
The Honor 8 Lite gets simple camera setup like any other phone in its range. There’s a 12MP camera on the rear and an 8MP one on the front. It still promises to capture great low light shots. Then there’s a fingerprint scanner on the back. Needless to mention, there’s also dual SIM with 4G VoLTE support.
The Honor 8 Lite runs Android 7 Nougat out of the box underneath EMUI 5.0. The custom UI adds few tricks to the already useful Android OS such as WiFi bridge which lets you use WiFi and share it with your friends at the same time.
Although the Honor is Huawei’s e-brand, the company will be selling Honor 8 Lite offline in partner stores at Rs.17,999
