Huawei already have a Huawei P9 Lite and they are planning to launch a P10 Lite in few weeks. But they have launched a P8 Lite (2017). Can things get more confusing for tech writers than this….. really … Huawei.

Huawei has launched the new Huawei P8 Lite (2017), soon after the release of Huawei Honor 6x. The phone is successor to the Huawei P8 Lite released in 2015. The 2017 version comes with a different design compared to the older P8, it has metal and glass build.

Huawei P8 Lite (2017) Launched Runs on Android Nougat 7.0

There is a brushed metal rim sandwiched between the 2.5 D curved glass front and back. At the front, P8 Lite 2017 has a 8 Mega Pixel selfie camera. At the back there is a single 12 Mega Pixel camera and a circular fingerprint scanner. Unlike the Huawei Honor 6X, which comes with Dual rear camera.

Notably the Huawei  Honor 6X is going to launch on Amazon India on 24th Jan 2017.

The P8 Lite (2017) comes with a 5.2 inch Full HD (1920*1080)  resolution IPS LCD display. It runs Huawie made Kirin 655 Octa-Core processor, along with 3 GB of RAM. P8 Lite has only 16 GB of internal storage which fortunately can be expanded with the help of a micro SD card. We would have liked 32 GB of internal storage.

The smartphone is powered by a 3000 mAH capacity battery which is  significantly higher compared to 2200 mAH battery used in  P8 Lite (2015).

The key highlight for P8 Lite (2017) is it’s latest Android N operating system which comes along with EMUI 5.0.

The Huawei P8 Lite 2017 “Black variant” will soon be available in the European market and would retail for €240 (approx ₹17,400).

It seems to be of an upgrade to the one released back in 2015. Although the presence of P9 Lite and the upcoming P10 Lite (in few weeks) makes it incongruous.
