Huawei’s Honor division has had a busy start to 2018. Whether it’s rolling out Oreo updates or giving its ever-growing fan base new phones, the company has done it all, but of course, this is just the beginning.
If you live in India, Honor has something cool for you. Today, the company launched the Honor 9 Lite, one of the few phones on the market that ship with an impressive four cameras – two on the front and two at the back.
For keen followers, you’ll know that Honor had already unveiled the Honor 9 in China back in June 2017 and later followed it up with the budget Honor 9 Lite. But it’s only now that the latter is hitting the Indian market and in fact, it’s not even available for purchase just yet.

While you’d expect to get low-end specs on a “Lite” device, the Honor 9 Lite is “Lite in name but not in nature”. It packs a modern-day 5.65-inch 18:9 screen with a full HD+ resolution and minimal bezels, a powerful midrange processor in the shape of Kirin 659, two RAM options of either 3GB or 4GB and two storage options of 32GB or 64GB. Both variants have room to expand the storage via a microSD card of up to 256GB.
Huawei Honor 9 Lite price and availability
The Honor 9 Lite, as you’d expect, comes in at a reasonable price tag of just Rs 10,999 for the base model (about $172) and Rs 14,999 for the high-end variant (about $235). Other than selling through its official store, the Honor 9 Lite will also be available on Flipkart at the same price tag starting January 21st.
