Every year, we see a lot of phones from Honor, especially in the budget and the mid-range market. Today, the company announced yet another phone in the budget segment, the Honor 10 Lite. As the name indicates, the Honor 10 Lite is the stripped down version of the Honor 10 and the successor to the Honor 9 Lite. The phone has most of the specifications similar to the Honor 8X. As always, we expect this device to launch in markets outside of China in a couple of months.
Recently, we have seen Honor launching some well-built phones in the budget and mid-range smartphone market. The Honor 10 Lite is no different. The phone has a glass and metal design that makes it look premium. Like the Honor 10, the 10 Lite too has that unique glass back which reflects lights in such a way that we see different design everytime light strikes on it.
The dual cameras on the rear are arranged vertically, and the fingerprint scanner is also placed on the back. On the front, the phone has an edge-to-edge screen with small chin on the bottom. The Honor 8X too has a small chin on the bottom, but the Honor 10 Lite has a waterdrop notch that houses the front-facing camera. This makes the 10 Lite look better than the 8X from the front.
The Honor 10 Lite has a 6.21-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD with a resolution of 2340 x 1080, 415PPI pixel density, and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The overall screen-to-body ratio is around 90%. There is no mention of any Gorilla Glass protection on the official site, but we hope there’s one.
The chipset powering the Honor 10 Lite is the 12nm Kirin 710. Yes, this is the same processor that powers the Honor 8X. It is a very capable mid-range processor from Huawei that sits between the Snapdragon 636 and the 660 regarding the performance. The Kirin 710 is an octa-core processor having a combination of 4x Cortex A73 at 2.2GHz and 4x Cortex A53 at 1.7GHz. The phone has 4/6GB RAM and 64/128GB internal storage. The storage is expandable up to 512GB.
Coming to the cameras, the Honor 10 Lite has a main 13MP f/1.8 sensor and a secondary 2MP depth sensor. On the front, there is a 24MP camera with f/2.0 aperture. AI features like Scene Detection, Bokeh Mode; Night Scene, etc. are all present.
Under the hood, there is a 3,400mAh battery that charges via the normal 5V/2A charger provided in the box. It is a shame that the phone still has the old micro USB port. Come on, Honor! 2018 is about to end. Just USB Type-C all the things! (Hello, MKBHD). The phone does have the headphone jack, so that’s nice.
The Honor 10 Lite runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box with the EMUI 9.0.1 out of the box.
The Honor 10 Lite comes in four colors – Gradient Blue, Gradient Red, Black, and White. Here is pricing for the Chinese market –
- 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM – 1,399 Yuan ($201)
- 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM – 1,699 Yuan ($245)
- 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 1,899 Yuan ($274)
The phone will go on sale in China from tomorrow, i.e., November 22.
