Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has today announced its latest smartphone, the Honor 10X Lite, for the global markets. The Honor 10X Lite got first announced in Saudi Arabia last month, and it is essentially a toned-down version of the Honor 10X smartphone — aimed to cater to the mid-range segment. What still remains unchanged, however, is that there is still no support for GMS onboard due to the ongoing dispute between the Trump administration and Huawei.

In terms of design, the Honor 10X Lite appears to have a gradient-finish design on the rear. There is a rectangular camera module on the back to incorporate the quad cameras. Towards the front, the device features a 6.67-inch IPS LCD display with an FHD+ resolution. The display also has a hole-punch cutout to house the front-facing camera. Honor 10X Lite comes in three colors: Icelandic Frost, Emerald Green, and Midnight Black.
