Honor has announced that it will launch a new smartphone by the end of this month with a quad-camera setup. It is speculated to be the Honor 9i Lite, which was launched in China last month. The company has also confirmed that the upcoming device will sport a glass unibody design saying, “Ensuring its consumers to stay connected while in style, the new smartphone will be equipped with a sleek looking glass unibody with mirror effect rear glass, similar to what has been seen in premium smartphones like Honor 8 and Honor 9, and other smartphones like Apple iPhone X.” The price and specifications of the device are yet to be revealed.
Honor had previously launched its Honor 9i in India, which also sports a quad-camera setup. It features a 5.9-inch Full View display with a 2160 X 1080p resolution and is powered by a Kirin 659 SoC with 4GB of RAM.
