Honor 9 Lite official, mid-range smartphone with 4 cameras

The smartphone has two cameras on both the front and back. 18:9 screen with FullHD+ resolution. Launch price of 229.90 euros

Honor continues in its strategy to conquer an increasingly large slice of the Italian market. In recent years, the Chinese company has managed to create its own niche, but the goal is to become one of the first Italian manufacturers. And after having launched at the end of last year the Honor 7X, now the company relaunches with a new mid-range.

We are talking about the Honor 9 Lite, the first smartphone of the new Honor Lite series. The device is very similar to other smartphones from the same company and Huawei (the company that controls Honor), but differs in the presence of four cameras: two in the front and two in the back. For a mid-range device, this is a very particular choice and Honor bets precisely on the presence of four cameras to convince users to buy the Honor 9 Lite. The smartphone is also characterized by the presence of an 18:9 panel with FullHD resolution.

The features of the Honor 9 Lite

The technical data sheet of the Honor 9 Lite does not present great news. It is identical to that of other smartphones launched in recent months and produced by the same Honor or Huawei. On board we find a Kirin 659 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory (expandable). The screen has a diagonal of 5.65 inches and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Credit to the Full View display with FullHD+ resolution that Honor decided to mount even on a mid-range device like the Honor 9 Lite. The bezels of the smartphone are very narrow and this allows the device to have a compact shape.

Let's talk about the photo compartment. The smartphone mounts a dual camera in both the front and the back. The main sensor is 13 Megapixels and has an f/2.0 aperture, while the rear camera is 2 Megapixels and collects depth of field information, offering the possibility to take photos with bokeh effect. Honor also provides a beauty filter for selfies. On the back side there is also a fingerprint reader. The battery is 3000mAh. On board there will be Android Oreo 8.0 with the EMUI 8.0 user interface.
