How considerably will the Honor 9 Lite cost?
Honor has not still announced a price for the 9 Lite, but we are hoping it to occur in beneath the £300 mark to continue to be aggressive. We will update you as shortly as we can.
What are the characteristics and specs of the Honor 9 Lite?
The cell phone is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 659 processor that Honor also utilised in the recent Honor 7X. It is decidedly mid-selection, but gives very decent performance in that other cell phone, so we’ll have to test that in our whole 9 Lite review.
It has 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage – additionally a microSD card slot -, though the display is a 5.65in 2160×1080 FHD+ Liquid crystal display with 428ppi. It also carries on Honor’s doubling of the digital camera lenses with two sets of 13Mp and 2Mp sensors on the entrance and back again of the cell phone.
There’s also a rear mounted fingerprint sensor for unlocking and security inside applications. It’s readily available in blue, black and gray.
It operates Android 8. Oreo out of the box, which is great to see on a cell phone at this price but it also operates EMUI, a edition of Android that we at times come across way too cluttered and modify for the sake of modify. But great on Honor even so.
EMUI provides software package characteristics these types of as a floating navigation dock which looks like it’ll consider some receiving utilised to, broader recognised characteristics like night mode and split display, and gestures for magnification and screenshots. Like other Honor telephones, the 9 Lite lends itself to the Android electric power consumer customisation crowd.
There’s twin-SIM way too, but if you use an SD card you will have to settle for 1 SIM, though the 3,000mAh battery is billed more than micro-USB, a nod to the truth that this is more affordable hardware not still ready for USB-C and a price hike. There is a headphone jack though, so it’s not all terrible.
It’s yet another price range cell phone from Honor, a firm that attempts to cater for all tastes but truly finishes up producing basically the same cell phone several situations the 9 Lite is quite comparable to the 7X.
And with the Honor 9 itself only costing £299, you might be going to definitely have to want the 9 Lite’s entrance twin cameras and the more substantial display.
