Honor 8 Lite is the New Affordable Flagship from Huawei

February 3, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Huawei released its Honor 8 flagship not over a year ago, but it’s getting a makeover with regards to inside specs. But unlike One Plus which fired a more powerful variant within a span of six months to its flagship, Huawei is going the way opposite by bringing out a scaled down version of the Honor 8.

The new device is called the Honor 8 Lite, but there’s nothing light that appears externally with this rather mid-range flagship. With an all-glass design that boasts the 15-layer processing similar to its bigger siblings, the Honor 8 Lite features a 5.2-inch display that will be packing Full HD resolution.


On the rear-side is seated a 12 MP camera, which is accompanied by an 8MP sensor on the front side. That’s identical to what we had in Honor 8, which should make you wonder whether there is any difference in the new device. Of course there is, and that’s with the inside hardware.

Honor 8 Lite is a less-powered flagship that will be coming out with a Kirin 655 mid-range processor instead of the Kirin 955 processor that was used in Honor 8. Also, there will only 3 GB RAM instead of the 4GB RAM in Honor 8, and the storage has also been cut down to 16 GB. But it can be expanded to 128 GB via microSD.

Despite the scaled down hardware, Honor 8 Lite is a good option to consider given the unchanged parameters like the design brilliance and display. Besides, Honor 8 Lite will also come powered by Android Nougat supplemented by EMUI 5.0. To recall, Honor 8 is yet to receive its Nougat update.
