Chinese smartphone maker Honor has hinted at launching a new smartphone Honor 9 Lite very soon. The phone will be available on the Flipkart exclusive sale. The phone will have four cameras and a glass design. The phone has been already launched in China last month and will soon be available for the Indian market.
The price of the phone in China is close to Rs. 12000 for the 3GB RAM, 32GB storage variant. As the storage increases, the prices increase by Rs. 1000-2000. The 4GB RAM, 64GB storage variant is priced at Rs. 17,500. So we can say the Honor 9 Lite will be in the similar range of close or under Rs. 20000. When Honor 9 Lite was launched in China, the company said it would release the phone in 14 other countries. The exact date of the launch is still not known but Flipkart has already listed the smartphone along with specifications on its website.
The Honor 9 Lite has dual-SIM with EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. The phone has a dual camera on both the front and back. Along with a 13-megapixel camera, it has a 2-megapixel secondary camera on both sides. The rear camera has PDAF autofocus and LED flash. The phone has 32GB and 64GB storage facility with an inbuilt expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB) in a hybrid dual-SIM configuration. There is also a RAM variation of 3GB and 4GB. The phone has a 3000mAh battery promising a talk time of up to 20 hours on 3G and a standby time of up to 24 days. Honor says the smartphone charges fully in about 2 hours 20 minutes. So it is effective for those who have extensive use of their smartphones.
Honor had launched the Honor View 10 in November in India. The phone was high in storage with 128 GB internal storage and 6 GB RAM. The phone is priced at Rs. 29999. The Honor 9 Lite will thus be a phone of a lesser grade. If you are looking for a new smartphone under Rs. 20000, Honor 9 Lite could be a good option available soon.
