Earlier this week, we told you that Huawei sub-brand Honor was going to launch a smartphone with quad cameras in India later this month. However, at that time, there was no word on exactly which smartphone it will be launching in India. But now, it has been confirmed that Honor will be launching the Honor 9 Lite in India which was first launched in China last month.
Indian online retailer Flipkart has setup a page for Honor 9 Lite on its site which confirms that Honor will be launching the Honor 9 Lite in India later this month. Besides, the page also confirms that the Honor 9 Lite will be sold exclusively through Flipkart in India.
The Honor 9 Lite, like many of the recent Honor and Huawei smartphones, sports a design with smaller bezels, however, the biggest highlight of the Honor 9 Lite are the quad cameras. Yes, the phone comes with a total of four cameras – two each on the front and back – and, the dual camera setup on the front and back is a combination of one 13 MP and one 2 MP camera.
That said, the Honor 9 Lite is powered by Kirin 659 SoC that’s paired with 3 or 4 GB RAM. In China, the 3 GB RAM variant comes with 32 GB of internal storage whereas the 4 GB RAM variant comes with 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. However, in India, the Honor 9 Lite will be available only in two configurations – 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM + 64 GB storage.
