Earlier this week, Honor India launched its latest smartphone called Honor 9 Lite. It is the most affordable smartphone with Full HD+ FullView display. The Honor 9 Lite is priced at Rs. 10,999 for the 3GB RAM variant and will go on sale exclusively on Flipkart starting 12 midnight on January 21st. There is also a 4GB RAM variant with 64GB of onboard storage, and it costs Rs. 14,999. It comes in Sapphire Blue and Midnight Black color options.
While the Honor 9 Lite packs similar specifications as seen on the Honor 9i and Honor 7X, it comes with a unique design featuring mirror-finish glass back body. The Honor 9 Lite sports 2.5D curved glass on the rear and front. Unlike the other 18:9 smartphones at this price range, only the Honor 9 Lite offers Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution. With the similar bezels and wider display, the user feels more immersed while consuming multimedia content on this smartphone.
The latest Android 8.0 Oreo-based EMUI 8.0 is also optimized for 18:9 aspect ratio. The user can also manually adjust the resolution between Full HD+ and HD+ to improve the battery life. Coming to the cameras, there are dual cameras on the front and rear of the device. Even the Honor 9i launched last year also came with quad cameras. The Honor 9 Lite sports 13MP + 2MP dual rear camera setup with PDAF fast focus and LED flash. On the front is the same 13MP + 2MP dual camera setup with portrait mode 2.0 for beautiful looking bokeh effects.
It packs a relatively large 3,000mAh non-removable battery and comes with 5V/2A (10W) fast charging support. According to the company, it can give up to 20 hours of talk time and lasts up to 24 days in standby mode. There is a circular fingerprint sensor at the back, and it is mentioned to unlock the device in just 0.25 seconds. With the in-house EMUI, the fingerprint sensor can also be used to unlock pre-selected apps, capture photos in the camera app, answering calls, and supports few more gestures.
The Honor 9 Lite measures 7.6mm thick and weighs only 149 grams. While the Honor 7X at Rs. 12,999 is already the best deal, the new Honor 9 Lite offers an additional front camera and unique design at a slightly lower price tag. Honor 9 Lite is one phone that gives a tough competition to Xiaomi Mi A1, Honor 7X, and Moto G5s Plus. While the Mi A1 and Moto G5s Plus come with 16:9 Full HD displays, the Honor 9 Lite offers 18:9 Full HD+ display.
Even with a lower price tag, only Honor 9 Lite features dual front cameras for capturing amazing selfies. Currently, this is the best mid-range phone to go for in sub 15K category which not only gives good specs as compared to competing models like Mi A1, Redmi Note 4, and Moto G5s Plus but also gives you a premium looking design which cannot be seen in these range of phones. However, the Honor 9 Lite will be sold via flash sales in India. There are limited stocks, so don’t just sit there. Click on the link mentioned below the video and check it out! It’s available on Flipkart on 21st Jan at 12 midnight!
