A few rumors about a new Honor smartphone started spreading yesterday and, eventually, the device was confirmed by a site from Finland! To be more specific, we’re talking about the Honor 8 Lite, an upper mid-range device, with a very appealing design.
Out of the box, it comes with a 5.2″ LTPS display, covered by 2.5D glass and a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Powering it is a Kirin 655 chip, with an octa-core configuration, alongside 3 GB of RAM, while the internal storage capacity counts just 16 GB, but this shouldn’t be a problem, considering that the phone also has a slot for a microSD card, allowing you to expand the storage.
As you can see, the Honor 8 Lite doesn’t have that many buttons on it. A physical home button is missing, but still, there’s a fingerprint scanner on the back and, most likely, on-screen software buttons.
In case you feel there’s something familiar about this phone is because it’s basically the same thing as the Huawei P8 Lite (2017), the only difference being on the back, where the Honor 8 Lite has a 12 MP camera, with f/2.2 aperture, a bit faster than the P8 Lite’s f/2.0 model. Also, let’s not forget about the 8 MP front-facing snapper, with a 77-degree wide angle.
Currently, you can buy this smartphone, in Black and White, just from Finland, where it’s available for pre-ordering, at €269, while the actual sales will start on February 17. By the end of March, the Blue and Gold versions will also be available.
