Honor 8 Lite launched at Rs 17,999 with Android Nougat and 4GB of RAM
Huawei just lifted the veil on its newest addition to the Honor lineup, the Honor 8 Lite. And as one would expect, it’s a mid-range stripped version of the Huawei Honor 8 which was launched back in October last year.
Honor 8 Lite comes in at 7.6mm thin and bears a metallic design with chamfered edges and sports a 5.2 inch FullHD (1920×1080) display. The phone bears a similar ‘pixelish’ design on the back, like its elder sibling, except there are no dual cameras on the back this time around. The back also houses the fingerprint scanner which, Huawei claims, will unlock the phone in 0.3 seconds.

In the camera department, the Honor 8 Lite sports a 12MP rear autofocus camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash. The phone also houses an 8MP snapper on the front with a wide-angle lens.
The phone is powered by an in-house octa-core Kirin 655 coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of ROM which is expandable upto 128GB via a MicroSD card. The dual-sim phone supports 4G with VoLTE.
The phone runs on Huawei’s EMUI 5.0 which is based on Android Nougat 7.0. The software has some new tricks up its sleeves, such as an app drawer and twin app support which were previously absent on EMUI.
The phone has a battery capacity rated at 3000 mAh and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone still uses a MicroUSB port and comes with Smart Power 5.0 system which maximizes the efficiency of the battery.
The Honor 8 comes priced at Rs 17,999 and will be available in offline in stores starting from 12th May.
