t might be Lite in name, but Honor’s latest wallet-friendly phone isn’t light on features.
It takes the already excellent Honor 9, slims down the bezels and shifts the front-facing finger scanner to the back in favour of an 18:9 screen.The 5.65in, Full HD-plus-a-bit-more panel shouldn’t stretch your digits like a portable torture device, like some 6in plus phones doing the rounds right now.
The 9 Lite is also packing four cameras – a 13MP + 2MP setup on the back, and the same again up front. It might be a step down in terms of pixel count from the Honor 9, but it should make the Lite a dab hand at adding dreamy depth blur to your selfies, as well as your regular snaps.
The slick, all-glass design stays the same, the 3000mAh battery should get you through the day on one charge, and a Kirin 659 should provide plenty of CPU grunt.
There’s no word yet on a Middle East price or release date but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we see the Honor 9 Lite hit our shores very soon.
