Honor 9 Lite to launch today: Specifications, expected price and how to watch the livestream

Honor is all set to launch its latest smartphone, the Honor 9 Lite in India today in an event at 12:00 PM. The smartphone was previously launched in China and its highlights are the quad camera setup, similar to the Honor 9i. The smartphone also sports a glass rear panel.

In China, the the 3GB RAM/32GB ROM variant of the Honor 9 Lite was priced at CNY 1,199 (Rs 11,700 approx) whereas it costs CNY 1,499 (Rs 15,600 approx) for the 4GB RAM/32GB ROM model. It is expected to be priced between the Honor 9i (review) and the View 10 (review) in India and could cost somewhere between 17,999 to 29,999. The live stream of the event can be watched on the company’s YouTube channel.

Coming to the specifications, the Honor 9 Lite sports a FullVision (18:9 aspect ratio) 5.65-inch full-HD+ IPS display with a resolution of 2160×1440 pixels. It is powered by the Kirin 659 chipset which houses an i5 co-processor. The co-processor is a low power consuming unit that assists the main processor in performing complex calculations and operate in a low power “always sensing mode”. The dual SIM device runs on EMUI 8.0 layered atop Android 8.0 Oreo and packs a 3000 mAh battery. It comes with a rear placed fingerprint sensor.

In terms of optics, the Honor 9 Lite features a 13MP + 2MP dual front and rear camera setup. Both camera setups support 1080p video recording and the rear camera also comes with PDAF support and an LED flash. In terms of connectivity, the device features VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, and comes with a 3.5mm audio jack and Micro-USB port for charging.  

It’s clear that except for Android Oreo and a glass rear panel, there is not much difference between the new Honor 9 Lite and the Honor 9i. Honor says that the glass back is covered with an oleophobic coating and comes with 12 layers of protection. The rear panel is produced using the Physical Vapor Deposition (PPVD) technique, which vapourises and condenses a thin film of glass. The company says this treatment makes the rear panel more resilient against scuffs and scratches.
