Honor 8 Lite With Android 7.0 Nougat, Octa-Core SoC Launched

Highlights

  • Honor 8 Lite runs on Android Nougat
  • The device has a 5.2-inch full-HD display
  • It packs a 3000mAh battery

Ahead of MWC 2017, Huawei has quietly launched its new smartphone in Finland. The Honor 8 Lite is up for pre-orders, and is priced at EUR 269 (roughly Rs. 19,600). It is set to go on sale in the country on February 17.

Finland site Suomimobiili reported of this development in the country. The Honor 8 Lite, specifications wise, is very similar to the refreshed Huawei P8 Lite (2017) launched recently, albeit with minute differences. One of the big highlights of the Honor 8 Lite is that it runs on EMUI 5.0, based on Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box.

As for specifications, the Honor 8 Lite features a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display with 2.5D curved glass protection. It is powered by the company's in-house Kirin 655 octa-core CPU paired with 3GB RAM. Just to compare, the Honor 8 sports a Kirin 950 SoC with 4GB RAM. The smartphone offers 16GB of internal storage with the option to further expand it via microSD card (up to 128GB).

As for optics, the Honor 8 Lite sports a 12-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture and autofocus. At the front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera as well with a 77-degree wide-angle lens. The smartphone packs a 3000mAh battery and comes in four colour options - Black, Blue, Gold, and White. However, the report claims that the company will make available only the Black and White variant right now and launch the Gold variant sometime in the end of the month. The Blue variant will be launched sometime in March. There's no word yet on availability in international markets.
