Honor 8 Lite looks very similar to the Honor 8 launched last year. It sports a metal frame and a glass back giving it an overall premium look. However, the Honor 8 Lite is a mid-range device and that fantastic flatback dual-camera setup that we saw on the Honor 8 is missing in this younger sibling.
Honor 8 Lite Specs:
- Operating System: Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0
- Processor: Octa-core Kirin 655 (4 x 2.1GHz + 4 x 1.7GHz)
- Display: 13.2cm (5.2-inch) Full HD (1080 x 1920)
- RAM: 4 GB
- Internal Storage: 64 GB; expandable up to 128 GB with a microSD card
- Rear Camera: 12 MP rear camera with LED Flash
- Front Camera: 8MP with 77-degrees wide-angle lens
- Battery: 3,000 mAh
Honor 8 Lite is the first device in the market from the company with EMUI 5.0 out-of-the-box. While globally the phone has been launched in different RAM and storage variants, in India, the company has launched only the high-end 4GB + 64GB memory variant.
The Honor 8 Lite will be available in Premium Black color initially, followed by a blue color variant later this month. Priced at ₹17,999 ($279) , the Honor 8 Lite will go on sale starting tomorrow across Honor partner stores across India.
