Huawei P10 Lite with Kirin 655 chipset and Android 7.0 Nougat spotted at Geekbench


Huawei has been working on the smartphones it plans to launch this year and a few of them have already been surfacing online. The Geekbench benchmarking website lists a Huawei “WAS-LX1A” smartphone. This phone is likely to be the Huawei P10 Lite which might be launched with the much-awaited Huawei P10 and the Huawei P10 Plus.

As per the Geekbench listing, the Huawei WAS-LX1A smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. By default, this handset runs an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 655 mobile processor with its cores clocked at 1.71 GHz. Huawei is also said to pack 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage on it.

From the specs sheet, we can estimate that the Huawei P10 Lite will be a mid-range smartphone. Also, we’re happy to see Android Nougat provided out-of-the-box on this handset.

The Huawei P10 Lite has already made an appearance on TENAA, the Chinese telecommunications authority website. The P10 Lite will come with a 5.2-inch Full HD display. The handset will measure 146.5x72x7.2mm and will weigh 146g. The handset will have the Huawei branding in the front, below the screen. The fingerprint scanner will rest on the back.

As of now, there is no way to confirm whether the Huawei WAS-LX1A or WAS-AL00 will eventually be launched as the Huawei P10 Lite. For that, we will have to wait until Mobile World Congress 2017 kickstarts to see if Huawei unveils all three device or any other new device in the P-series.
