Honor 10 Lite

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has been on a roll in India. The company saw several phone launches in 2018 in a bid to increase its market share in the country. While it is yet to break into the list of the top five smartphone vendors in the country, there is no denying that Honor is now a well-known brand in India. Continuing with its strategy of flooding the market with new phones, Honor has readied another smartphone that it plans to launch on January 8, 2019. This new smartphone is most likely to be the Honor 10 Lite that was launched in China back in November 2018. The company has started teasing the launch on Flipkart and now even has a dedicated landing page.

Honor 10 Lite Teaser on Flipkart: What Does It Say?

While the new teaser page on Flipkart does not explicitly mention the name of the phone – simply referring to it as a phone that is ‘set to revolutionize selfies’ – the assumption is that it is almost certainly the Honor 10 Lite. On the Flipkart teaser page, Honor talks about the design trends it introduced in India last year – including several eye-catching colors in which their devices came to the country. The page also claims that it was the first brand in the country to introduce a quad camera smartphone (Honor 9i) and to bring phones will premium glass-clad finish. The teaser also claims that Honor continues to be India’s fastest growing smartphone brand. Anyway, let us now talk about the device for which Honor has prepared this elaborate teaser.

More about the Honor 10 Lite

As mentioned earlier in this article, the Honor 10 Lite is not a brand new device. It was launched in Honor’s home market, China back in November 2018. The phone is a mid-range device positioned below the Honor 10 and for the same reason, uses Huawei’s own mid-range chipset – the HiSilicon Kirin 710. Other specifications of the handset include a large 6.21-inch IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch at the top with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels in the 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The Kirin 710 SoC houses an octa-core CPU and also integrates 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The dual-SIM handset will also feature a microSD card slot for additional storage options.

The camera setup on the Honor 10 Lite consists of a setup you have seen before on Honor devices. This setup includes a 13-megapixel primary sensor mated to a 2-megapixel depth sensor. At the front, the phone gets a 24-megapixel sensor for selfies. Needless to say, Honor has already started promoting the Honor 10 Lite as a selfie-centric handset.

The Honor 10 Lite also gets comprehensive connectivity options including support for Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v4.2, FM Radio, NFC, GPS, and 4G VoLTE. The phone will also feature a micro USB port for physical connectivity and charging. We would have loved to see an USB-Type-C port here instead. As for the battery, we know that the phone will feature a decently sized 3400 mAh battery. The phone will run the latest version of Android underneath a layer of EMUI 9.
