Huawei just announced a new phone dubbed the Huawei P8 Lite (2017), which will soon be available in select markets across Europe. Interestingly, this newly announced device is named similar to Huawei P8 Lite, announced a couple of years ago. That is strange because the P8 Lite already got a successor in the form of the P9 Lite. Huawei’s weird naming strategy aside, let’s take a look at the specifications of the newly announced smartphone.
On the front, Huawei P8 Lite (2017) comes with 1920 x 1080 pixels stretched across a 5.2-inch Full HD display. It is powered by Huawei’s latest mid-ranged HiSilicon Kirin 655 octa-core chip combined with Mali-T830 GPU. It is the same configuration powering the recently launched Honor 6X smartphone. Internally, the device embraces 3GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which is expandable further up to 128GB. The device also features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It houses a 12MP rear shooter alongside a LED flash as well as an 8-megapixel front shooter for capturing selfies.
Furthermore, Huawei P8 Lite (2017) is a dual-SIM device and has a hybrid SIM slot. So it can operate with either two SIM cards or one SIM card and a microSD card. Interestingly, it runs Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5 on top, which was first unveiled at last year’s IFA in Berlin. On the connectivity front, there is 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS. That aside, the device packs in 3000mAh battery. Huawei P8 Lite (2017) will launch in various EU markets starting Germany later this month for €239 (approx. Rs 17,330).
