Honor 9 Lite: £199 due Feb 16th
Continuing a tradition of affordable smartphones with relatively high specifications, the Honor 9 Lite delivers excellent camera credentials at the sub £200 price point.
First stock of the Honor 9 Lite is due to be available from Friday 16th February. UK stock will be in Sapphire Blue with a 32GB storage & 3GB RAM configuration for £199 (£165.83 ex-VAT).
Parent company Huawei has pushed the boundaries in the past few years with dual-lens mobile camera technology. This has been passed to the Honor phones and the 9 Lite now features a dual array on both the front and back of the phone.
Both sides are rated at 13MP + 2MP with the same lenses and sensors, so you receive identical image quality, whichever way you turn the phone. The additional lens/sensor allowing for depth-of-field effects produced by hardware – not software. Beautification modes and other post-production trickery are available from the Honor camera application, to adjust your selfies or main camera imagery.
Always staying on trend, the Honor 9 Lite is also one of the most affordable phone son the market to feature a FullView 18:9 ratio display. This shrinks the bezels of the phone to a minimum, creating a gorgeous front-on view of the phone.
Great design doesn’t stop there though. Honor has made sure to include the stunning multi-faceted glass cover seen on their more expensive phones. This light-catching exterior creates a dance of flares that should impress any onlookers.
Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor & chip-level security for encrypted content, a powerful mid-range Huawei HiSilicon processor and a large 3,000 mAh battery.
If you’re looking for a great smartphone on a budget then the Honor 9 Lite could be just for you.
