The P9 Lite may already be in the wild despite skipping the reveal of the P9 and P9 Plus. The Lite version is not expected to be any smaller than the standard P9.

With the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus made official earlier this month, users are left wondering when the P9 Lite will make an appearance and how it will compare to its P9 siblings. Russian site Hi Tech, however, claims to be in possession of a pre-release unit and have shared details on the supposed device.

Accordingly, the P9 Lite will not be a simple miniature version of the P9. The model makes use of a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB eMMC, 3000 mAh battery, fingerprint reader, and a different 13 MP rear camera than the standard P9 model. The source says a SKU with 3 GB RAM could be possible as well. Thus, the main difference between the P9 Lite and the standard P9 could lie in camera performance. Based on these images, the P9 Lite will be very similar to the high-end Mate 8 from the front while having a redesigned squarer back.

Unfortunately, there is still no mention of the exact processor that will power the P9 Lite, though it will likely be less powerful than the Kirin 955 SoC as found in the P9. The P9 and P9 Plus will be available in the coming weeks and we expect that the P9 Lite will not be too far behind.

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.
