Huawei Honor 9 Lite Arrives with Quad-Cam and FullView Display

December 27, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Huawei might be one of the late-birds when it comes to 18:9 displays, but it’s picking up the pace very well. Following the launch of its first devices with the new aspect ratio, the Chinese manufacturer has now launched another device with its FullView Display technology, the Honor 9 Lite.

Indeed, the launch of Honor 9 Lite wasn’t quite a surprise. Huawei had always wooed the mid-ranger fans of the Honor series with a Lite edition. But what was uncertain was weather the company would jump to the modern trends, with the Honor 9 devices from the premium batch yet to embrace the new technology.

But the company hasn’t disappointed the fans, as Honor 9 Lite features an 18:9 aspect ratio, although with a resolution of 2160×1080. The wait for a premium display with FullView technology would still be kept alive.

In addition to the new display, the Honor 9 Lite also has another feature that was not present in the premium editions: quad –cam setup. Huawei Honor 9 Lite will feature four camera sensors altogether, two each on the rear and front face of the device. Both the pair is formed by a 13MP sensor and a 2MP sensor, with the latter dedicated for depth sensing.

But obviously, these features wouldn’t be enough for the Huawei 9 Lite to be weighed on with the premium ones due to its mid-ranged specifications. The device features a less powerful Kirin 659 SoC compared to the flagship Kirin 960 used in Honor 9.

The pricing of the smartphone starts at 1199 RM ($180), for which you can grab the base model with 3GB RAM and 32 GB storage. The 4GB version with a storage of 64GB storage would cost 1799 RMB, roughly translating to around $270. The device will get launched in China on 26th of December, and it will be followed by its entry to 14 other markets.
