Honor 8 Lite with Kirin 655 SoC, 3 GB RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat launched

After launching the Honor 8 last year, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched a toned down version of the 8 called Honor 8 Lite.


As the name suggests, the Honor 8 Lite is a watered down version of the Honor 8. If you have seen the Honor 8, the first thing you will notice after taking a look at the Honor 8 Lite is that it’s missing the dual camera setup at the back. The Honor 8 came with a 12 MP + 12 MP dual camera setup at its back, but, the Honor 8 Lite comes with a 12 MP single camera.

The Honor 8 Lite, as opposed to the Kirin 950 on the Honor 8, is powered by Kirin 655 SoC which is laced with 3 GB RAM. The Honor 8 Lite is currently available for pre-order in Finland for €269 and will go on sale from February 17. As of now, there’s no information of Honor 8 Lite’s availability in other markets.
