Huawei after the launch of the Huawei P9 and P9 plus is ready to launch a watered-down version of the Huawei P9 known as the P9 lite. The smartphone got listed on the German website Teltarif before an actual launch by Huawei.
Teltarif killed the hype and excitement for Huawei guys who are planning to launch it most likely in May 2016. Huawei is also planning to launch the Huawei V8 and Huawei Honor 5C in the coming month.
The Huawei P9 Lite misses on the Leica designed Dual 12 MP camera but offers a 13 Megapixel camera at the back of the device. There is also a 8 Megapixel front selfies camera on the Huawei P9 Lite.
The Huawei P9 Lite comes with a similar 5.2 inch Full HD (1920*1080) pixels display with 422 PPI. The smartphone comes with a powerful Kirin 650 processor clocked at 2.0 Ghz. It is a 64-Bit Octa-Core processor.
The smartphone comes with the Android Marshmallow 6.0 along with the Huawei’s custom Emotion 4.1 UI.
It has got 3 GB RAM which is sufficient for multitasking and playing games. The smartphone has got 16 GB of internal storage and has an option to expand to 128 GB using a micro-sd card.
The smartphone has got a sturdy more rectangular design with the Huawei Logo at the front as well as at the back side. The smartphone weighs 147 grams and has a thickness of 7.5 mm which is ideal.
The Huawei P9 Lite comes with a fast fingerprint scanner at the back. The battery capacity is also large with 3000 mAH capacity which can last all day with a good amount of usage. The smartphone comes with Dual Sim 4G LTE support.
Huawei Honor P9 lite is priced at 299 Euros or Rs. 25,000 and seems a bit expensive. It is yet not clear when it will make it’s way to India or other countries. The smartphone will be available in Silver, Gold, and Black color variants.
It is a perfect mid-range smartphone with a decent processor , adequate Ram, good front and rear camera with the latest OS and Fingerprint reader.
Huawei and Leica have been under fire recently from media and Huawei fans who have been questioning Leica’s Role in the development of the Huawei P9 camera and to what level did Leica has helped in integrating the camera lens.
Huawei has issued a statement to curb the ongoing rumors “”Leica has been deeply involved in the development of the camera module of the P9 and P9 Plus,” . That’s all Huawei has to say about the involvement of Leica in the development of that Dual camera lens.
It would be great if Huawei launches the Huawei P9 Lite , P9 and P9 Plus in the Indian market, there will be a good competition for Xiaomi and OnePlus and Motorola in the upper mid-range.
