Honor 9 Lite: A Pretty Smartphone
Smartphone markets are getting stronger and the mid-range devices are dominating almost all of it. 2017 was a great year for smartphones on the basis of specs to price ratio. Like every other manufacturer, Huawei‘s sub-brand Honor is taking a step in the mid-range of mobile devices. Recently launched, the Honor 7X was a fantastic phone from every angle and was aggressively priced.
Huawei is known for making great smartphones but if you are living in the US then you might not know about this manufacturer. Huawei’s smartphones are unique, feel premium, powerful. And the camera? They have a collaboration with Leica to use their lenses in almost all phones.
In October 2017, Huawei has released the Honor 9i. It was a quad camera phone. There were 4 cameras: 2 rear and 2 front. This was epic, because there was no quad-camera phone before Honor 9i came to the market. The price was also so aggressive at ₹17,999/-. Moving to the specs, the phone comes with a bezel-less 5.9-inch FHD 18:9 aspect ratio display. Powered by their own Huawei Kirin 659 chipset, 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage and can be expanded by the hybrid extension slot. The cameras consist of 16+2 MP rear sensors and 13+2 MP front facing sesnors with built-in portrait mode in software. The battery capacity is 3340 mAh.
The Honor 9i got good response from buyers but still, there was a price gap. So Huawei decided to launch a stripped-down version of 9i called the Honor 9 lite.
The Honor 9 lite is coming with a 5.6-inch FHD 18:9 aspect ratio display. This phone is also powered by the same Kirin 659 chipset and there are two variants available: (a) 3GB RAM with 32GB onboard storage and (b) 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The camera on this phone is 13+2 MP for both the rear- and front-facing sensors. The battery capacity is reduced to 3000 mAh. The connector is a micro-USB instead of type-C.
If you are worried that cheap means poor build quality, then you should know that Honor never sacrificed in delivering premium phones according to their track record. The 3/32GB is priced at ₹10,999 and 4/64GB at ₹14,999. Sale starts from 21st January on Flipkart.
