Affordable Honor 8 Lite quietly launches in Europe

Honor did not want to wait for Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 to announce its new mid-range Android smartphone.

The Honor 8 Lite is available in four colour options which include: Gold, Black, Blue and White. However, other markets can expect the phone to go on sale sometime in March this year.

As the name suggests, the Honor 8 Lite is a stripped down version of the Honor 8, which was launched past year. As far as the cameras are concerned, the Huawei Honor 8 Lite packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.

In the imaging department, it features a single rear camera setup, instead of a dual camera setup as seen on the Honor 8.

The Honor 8 Lite comes with a 5.5-inch (1080x1920p) Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass on top.

The listing on the benchmarking website GeekBench also reveals some key information about the alleged device, which is set to ship with an octa-core Kirin 655 processor clocked at 1.71GHz, 4GB of RAM and runs Android 7.0 Nougat as its operating system out of the box. Luckily, there's a microSD slot on board, so you can expand the storage for an additional 128 GB. The device is backed by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery that the company claims can last more than a day.
