Huawei has some issues when naming its products, apparently. The latest smartphone unveiled by this Chinese company is a slightly improved P9 Lite but comes as P8 Lite (2017) instead.

The P8 Lite (2017) is a mid-ranger like the other Lite handsets made by Huawei so far. Its list of specs and features includes the following:

  • Processor: Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 655 SoC with Mali-T830 MP2 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 5.2-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 12 MP back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.0 on top
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh (embedded)

This handset is expected to debut in Europe, where the black variant goes on sale later this month for around $255 USD. White and gold variants are also expected to become available after a while. According to some reports, Latin America would get this handset as Huawei P9 Lite (2017).

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.
