Details of the Honor 9 Lite revealed
A few days ago, Honor released a teaser showing a device with what we assumed to be a quad camera setup. The teaser had the date marked out as December 13, however, so it's likely it was just showing the date when the actual invite would be sent out. The invites were sent out yesterday, with the main event scheduled for December 21.
The device, which we expect to be the Honor 9 Lite, has made the trip over to TENAA, with the listing on the Chinese certification agency's website showing us what to expect from the mid-range device. According to the listing, the device, with the model number "LLD-AL00", will sport a 5.65-inch FHD+ display, which is a tad smaller than what we've been seeing from devices with that aspect ratio. A display in that style would likely have the same feel in-hand as a regular 5.2-inch 16:9 one.
Aside from the display, the device will come in configurations of 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and 32 GB/64 GB of storage. The listed SoC isn’t named but the clock speed of 2.36GHz is a match for the Kirin 659 that has featured on most recent Huawei mid-rangers. The device will be powered by a 2900 mAh battery and will run on Android 8.0 out of the box.
Camera setup aside, this device looks exactly the same as the Huawei Enjoy 7S that surfaced a few days. It, in fact, seems to mirror the relationship between the Mate 10 Lite and the Honor 7X.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated.
