If you thought Honor was done introducing new phones for a few months, we have a surprise for you. The Huawei-owned brand has today launched yet another mid-range smartphone — the Honor 9 Lite. The phone comes with an excellent set of specifications which includes two pairs of camera sensors on the rear and front, an all-glass design and more. It will be available from January 21st exclusively on Flipkart and starts at a price of Rs 10,999.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Honor 9 Lite tries to check all the marks on the list of smartphone trends. For starters, it flaunts a tall 5.65-inch IPS display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a resolution of Full HD+. The phone inherits the brand’s signature glass aesthetic. Under the hood, the Honor 9 Lite is powered by a Hisilicon Kirin 659 octa-core processor coupled with 3/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB internal memory which is expandable, and a non-removable 3000mAh battery.
The phone’s cornerstone, however, lies in its exhaustive camera setup. The rear arrangement houses a primary 13-megapixel f/2.2 sensor and a secondary 2-megapixel lens for producing depth-of-field effects in your pictures. On the front, you’ll find the same pair, albeit with a marginally smaller f/2.0 aperture. There’s a fingerprint sensor situated on the back, and the Honor 9 Lite runs on Android Oreo with a custom skin on top. In addition to that, it comes with dual-SIM compatibility, VoLTE, and Bluetooth v4.2.
The Honor 9 Lite will go on sale from this month’s 21st. There are two variants to choose from — one with 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage that costs Rs 10,999 and another with 4GB RAM, 64GB memory which is priced at Rs 14,999. Honor is also offering ten percent cashback on Citi debit and credit cards to early buyers. It’s available in a couple of color options including Sapphire Blue, Glacier Grey, and Midnight Black.
