Honor 9X Lite: Pros & Cons

out of 10
MSP Score
  • Pros
  • 6.5-inch IPS LCD is adequately large for 2020 standards
  • High resolution, 48MP rear camera
  • Cons
  • Features an outdated and weak Kirin 710 chipset
  • Ships with Android 9 Pie in an era where other smartphones are offering Android 10 OS
  • Lacks Google Mobile Services (Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Play Store, etc.)
  • 16MP front camera has an average performance
  • 3750mAh battery packs falls short to offer enough battery backup for a moderate user
  • Only 10W charging on offer
The Honor 9X Lite looks like an interesting device from outside. Although, that isn't the case. Apart from its large display and a 48MP rear camera, the rest of the specs of the device are either outdated or inadequate for the price of the smartphone.

Honor 9X Lite Details

The Honor 9X Lite is expected to come as a trimmed-down version of the Honor 9X.
The Honor 9X Lite will most probably feature a 6.5-inch IPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution. The display might have a notch to house the front camera.
According to a leaked poster, the Honor 9X Lite will have a dual-camera setup at the rear. The poster revealed that the primary camera will be a 48MP sensor. Although there is no information on the second camera at the rear, it is expected to be a 2MP depth sensor. The front camera of the smartphone could be the sensor that is in the Honor 9X, a 16MP unit.
Being an affordable smartphone, the Honor 9X Lite could use HiSilicon’s entry-level chipset, the Kirin 710F. If Honor’s recent affordable smartphones are anything to go by, the Honor 9X Lite might feature 4GB and 6GB RAM options, and 64GB and 128GB storage options. The device will most probably run on the Android 10 operating system with Honor’s custom UI on top.
Battery, Connectivity, and Other Features
The Honor 9X Lite is expected to come with a 3750mAh battery featuring a 10W charging option. Connectivity options in Honor’s upcoming smartphone could include a dual-SIM option, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, USB Type-C port, and 3.5mm audio jack. A leaked teaser image of the device shows that it has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
