The Huawei P9 Lite should be shipping next month with Android 7 and EMUI 5.0 for 250 Euros.

Under the model name PRA-LX1 and the code name "Prague", the Huawei smartphone at CES this year is expected to launch in Latin America as the P9 Lite 2017. Its chassis and specifications, however, appear to be very similar to the recently announced and upcoming Honor 6X. The new P9 Lite will sport the same 5.2-inch FHD display and Kirin 655 SoC as its sibling with 3/4 GB RAM and 16/32 GB eMMC variants.

Other features include a rear fingerprint sensor that sits adjacent to the rear 12 MP F/2.0 camera. Unlike the Honor 6X, however, the P9 Lite 2017 will only have a single rear camera and a standard 8 MP front-facing camera. Battery capacity sits at 3000 mAh, which is standard for a smartphone this size. Android 7 and the EMUI 5.0 interface will ship pre-loaded to make it one of the first mid-range Huawei smartphones to sport Android 7 without any OTA updates.

The P9 Lite will launch next month for 250 to 300 Euros depending on the SKU. Expect our full review on the Honor 6X soon with the P9 Lite likely to follow in March.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
