Honor, a subbrand of Huawei has recently introduced a new contender for the midrange category, Honor 9 lite. By the looks and the specs on paper, Honor 9 Lite seems a promising phone and yes! the phone is a thing of beauty. With a glass back and aluminum frame, it has an attractive shiny look on it’s back which Honor calls “Mirror Effect Design”.
The smartphone features a large 5.65 inches of Honor Fullview display with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 and 18:9 aspect ratio, unlike the Huawei Y7 Prime 2018 which had a resolution of 720 x 1440.
The screen is 2.5D curved glass which smoothly integrates with the panel and gives a premium look. Honor 9 Lite is powered by Huawei’s Octacore Hisilicon Kirin 659 just like the Mate 10 Lite and has a 3/4 GB RAM with 32/64 GB internal memory.
Since the separation of Honor as a subbrand, Honor 9 lite is the first Honor phone to have a quad camera. Both front and back have got a 13 MP and a 2 MP shooter for crisp photos. Dual Front camera accounts for amazing selfies even in indoor conditions.
Honor 9 Lite houses a 3000 mAh battery. Although we think that it might not be enough for a day’s heavy usage but thanks to Android Oreo and EMUI 8.0 out of the box, this phone might be tweaked well in battery management.
Honor has intended to show off their design this time in budget line and has released this phones in 7 different colors with fancy names. These colors include Midnight Black, Sapphire Blue, Glacier Gray, Navy, Seagull Gray, Magic Nightfall and Pearl White.
