Honor 10 Lite Global Variant Gets Certified by the FCC

Honor 10 Lite could soon be launched in a few markets outside China.


Last week, Honor introduced the Honor 10 Lite mid-range Android smartphone in China. The smartphone is priced competitively in Honor’s home country and offers an impressive design with a high 90% screen-to-body ratio. A global variant of the Honor 10 Lite bearing the model number HRY-LX2 has now been certified by the US FCC, suggesting Honor may soon debut the smartphone’s global variant. While the HRY-LX2 model number has not been spotted online before, the HRY-LX1 variant of the Honor 10 Lite was spotted on the EEC website earlier this year.

Honor 10 Lite Set to Go Global Soon?

The HRY-LX2 FCC listing makes it quite clear that Honor is planning to soon launch the global variant of the Honor 10 Lite. Currently, the smartphone is on sale only in the manufacturer’s home country, where it starts at CNY 1,399 (INR 14,300 approx.) for the base variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. Since Huawei has increased its focus on the Indian market significantly in the last one year, there is a good chance that the Honor 10 Lite will be launched in India soon. As for the HRY-LX2 variant certified by the FCC, it is likely that it will be made available for sale in the US via retailers such as Amazon.

The Honor 10 Lite comes with a 6.21-inch IPS LCD display offering 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Running under the hood is a HiSilicon 12nm Kirin 710 octa-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. In the memory department, the smartphone is available in China with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As for optics, the smartphone sports a 13MP + 2MP dual-camera setup at the rear and a 24MP selfie snapper on the front. Both the front and rear cameras come with a host of AI-powered features. Fueling the internals of the handset is a 3400mAh capacity battery with 5V / 2A charging. In terms of software, Honor 10 Lite runs on Android 9.0 Pie-based EMUI 9.0.
