In fact, the two devices are very alike besides their names. For the design, they both uses a glass body with aluminum frame but their available colour is a little different. And they are equipped with the same hardware, the same memory capacity, the same battery capacity, even the same rear camera pixel.

However, there is a highlight on the HONOR 9 Lite. It is equipped with dual front camera yet the HONOR 9 Lite only has one front camera. The dual front camera is useful for certain effects like blur, zoom and wide angle selfies. It is believable that the HONOR 9 Lite will bring the hardware-level bokeh effects for your selfies images.
