The 5.2-inch FHD smartphone could cannibalize the Honor market and the P9 Lite due to similar specifications and price ranges between them.

Huawei has just announced the G9 Lite after rumors last week from MyDrivers and publicly available files from TENAA with front and back shots of the device. No word yet on whether or not the device will be made available internationally or only in Asian territories.

The Huawei G9 Lite will carry the following specifications:

  • 5.2-inch FHD display
  • Octa-core Snapdragon 617 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 16 GB eMMC
  • 13 MP rear + 8 MP front cameras
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • 146.8 x 72.6 x 7.6 mm
  • 143 g

The device will come in Black, White, and Gold color options. While the rumors were correct on the May 4th announcement date, the smartphone will be shipping with a Snapdragon SoC and 3000 mAh battery instead of the predicted Kirin SoC and 2900 mAh battery.

The launch price of 1700 Yuan (or 230 Euros) is twice as much as the Honor 5C while having only slightly higher specifications. The value preposition of the G9 Lite may be more difficult to justify compared to Huawei's other offerings.

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.
