Honor 9 Lite: Flash Sale for Re.1, Offer Details
The Honor 9 Lite will go on flash sale for an incredible Re.1 on July 24, at 3 pm, but only at the Honor Store on the web. As the name of the sale suggests, it comes with a limited stock and will follow the first-come-first-served method. While you cannot book the phone in advance, you can and must register at the Honor Store online shop. Click here to register now.
The flash sale is part of Honor’s Step Up sale series of limited-stock online sales, which are held every Tuesday at 3 pm. These sales are for registered users only, and Honor employees, or those of Vision, the authorized distributor for Honor Store, do not qualify. The consumer also must be of Indian nationality and at least 18 years of age. Also, you cannot access the sale from anywhere abroad.
There is also the limit of only one unit per buyer, and that you cannot opt for cash-on-delivery during the sale. The bigger caveat is that the handset will come with no warranty since it is going in a flash sale. This also means that the handset cannot be returned, unless deemed defective by Honor service team experts.
Honor 9 Lite: Features, Specifications
Honor takes pride in the Honor 9 Lite as a trendsetter, with a new dual-lens front camera that offers bokeh effect and gesture control, as well as pre-set effects for images. The front camera has a primary 13MP sensor and a secondary 2MP sensor and comes with face unlock feature. The front camera also gets a Portrait 2.0 mode, with an upgraded algorithm for more natural and beautified pictures, and a gender beauty mode that adds beauty effects based on the gender of the persons in the image. The rear dual camera has a 13MP+2MP setup too and comes with phase-detection fast auto-focus. The display is 5.65-inch Full HD+ unit with no bezels and 18:9 aspect ratio, but Honor has kept the size of the phone as small as that of a 5.2-inch screen handset. The slim handset has a dual 2.5D glass design and comes with mirror-like shine in Sapphire Blue and Glacier Grey editions. Topping Android 8.0 Oreo for the device is the EMUI 8.0 skin that is optimized for better performance and is assisted by artificial intelligence (AI).
Huawei’s Kirin 659 octa-core processor clocked at 2.36 GHz powers the device and the battery is a non-removable Li-Po 3,000 mAh unit that is claimed to give a whole day’s worth of power in a single full charge. The fingerprint sensor is on the rear panel and comes with machine learning technology that helps unlock the device within 0.25 seconds, and gradually faster with use.
