Available with up to 6 GB of memory and 128 GB of internal storage space, the HiSilicon Kirin 710-driven Honor 10 Lite sports a 6.2-inch display, a 3,400 mAh battery with fast charging, as well as a dual camera setup on the back and a generous 24 MP selfie shooter. It comes with Android Pie-based firmware onboard and retails for up to US$275.

Thanks to the new Honor 10 Lite, selfie lovers in China have a new attractive choice at their disposal. This device is a mid-range phablet with a HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor under the hood, a 24 MP front camera for selfies (with AI features, of course), and a 6.21-inch display that sports a waterdrop notch and has a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels.

In addition to the above, there is a main camera with a 13 + 2 MP pair of sensors on the back, a traditional 3.5 mm audio jack, FM radio, USB Type-C connectivity (including fast charging for the 3,400 mAh battery), dual-SIM, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS with GLONASS support. This handset runs Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.0.1 out of the box and comes in Gradient Blue, Gradient Red, Night Black, and Lily White.

The Honor 10 Lite comes in the following memory/storage versions: 4/64 GB for around US$200, 6/64 GB for roughly US$245, and 6/128 GB for around US$275. Obviously, some retailers might sell it for more, but these are Honor's official prices (go here for more details, but be aware that the page is in Chinese).

We have no information about the international availability of this device, but we will let you know as soon as we find out anything new. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Honor 10 Lite reaching other markets in the coming weeks as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
