Honor 9 Lite Details

Introduction and Display
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite is a cut-down variant of the Honor 9. The device has a fingerprint sensor at the back. While the smartphone features a full metal body design, one of the unique aspects of the smartphone is that it comes with four cameras; two at the back and two at the front. The Huawei Honor 9 Lite flaunts a 5.65-inch Full HD+ display. The aspect ratio of the screen is 18:9 and is paired with 2.5D curved glass. Sadly, there is no scratch-protection.
Camera and Battery
As mentioned earlier, one of the talking points of the Huawei Honor 9 Lite is its imaging capabilities. The Honor 9 Lite comes with dual front and rear shooters. At the rear, there are 13MP + 2MP primary cameras. At the front, the handset ships with dual 13MP + 2MP secondary cameras. The Huawei Honor 9 Lite is fuelled by a 3,000mAh battery which is touted by the company to last longer than most mid-range smartphones. 
Performance and Connectivity
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite packs a 2.3GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset. The chipset is aided with 3GB of RAM. For connectivity, the handset has options like 4G VoLTE support, GPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and a microUSB 2.0 port. Also, there is dual SIM support for users who users two networks at the same time. 
Platform and Storage
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite runs the Android 8.0 Oreo operating system wrapped under the proprietary EMUI 8.0. For storage, there is 32GB of internal storage which can be expanded via a microSD card up to 256GB. However, there is no dedicated slot for expansion, and one has to rely on the hybrid SIM slot.
