Honor 10 Lite has been launched after a series of leaks and rumours, and as expected, this is the lighter version of the Honor 10 smartphone which was introduced earlier this year. The Honor 10 Lite also takes some inspiration from its more powerful sibling in terms of design as it comes with gradient back which adds to the premium factor of the device. Moreover, the Honor 10 Lite seems to be one of the most promising budget smartphones as it comes with segment-leading hardware as well as a great design.
The major highlights of the Honor 10 Lite include Huawei’s efficient as well as powerful Kirin 710 processor, a 6.21-inch Full HD+ display with waterdrop notch design, dual rear cameras, a 24MP front camera, and a long lasting battery.
It should be noted that Honor has been launching some of the best ‘for you’ smartphones along with a VFM price tag and the Honor 10 Lite is no exception. During the launch of the Honor 10 Lite, the company specifically focused on how its new budget offering is a well-balanced smartphone which has AI-backed features for the camera, an efficient processor as well as a perfectly complementing Android 9.0 Pie based software.
The Honor 10 Lite is said to offer everything from an immersive multimedia consumption with a big as well as vibrant display to extended gaming experience with an effective processor as well as long battery backup. Other than that, the cameras are capable of capturing the picture-perfect moments with help of artificial intelligence while the compact design makes it easy to use the Honor 10 Lite with a single hand. Plus, the colour options look good the device.
