Honor 9X lite
The Honor 9X Lite sticks to the dated Kirin 710 chipset, but there is a simple reason – the platform is approved for Google services and Honor doesn’t want to miss to cash on that. Memory-wise, the phone is offered with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB storage, and there is room for a microSD card.
The device shares a lot of features with the Honor 8X like some hardware and the overall footprint, but there are some improvements like a 48 MP camera in a setup with a completely new design, and a fancy paint job.
The 48 MP camera is the key feature of the phone – it comes with an f/1.8 lens and is accompanied by a 2 MP f/2.4 depth sensor.
There is also an LED flash, all wrapped up in a setup that responds to the design Honor (among other companies) is implementing in its 2020 smartphones – a huge rectangle with some words next to the snappers.
Honor 9X Lite Key Specifications
The device will sport a 6.5-inch FullView display with a 16MP selfie cam. Around the back, we get a 48MP main cam alongside a 2MP depth sensor and a capacitive fingerprint scanner. The Kirin 710 chipset sits at the helm, paired with 4G RAM and 128GB storage. The battery is rated at 3,750 mAh.
The dimensions come in at 160.4 x 76.6 x 7.8 mm. On the software side, we see the phone will run EMUI 9.0 out of the box based on Android 9 but it will be upgradeable to Android 10.
The Honor 9X Lite is listed for sale at (NGN) 78,660 naira and is already up for pre-order despite the lack of any official launch date or other information from Honor’s side.
The front is where many users might be disappointed – there is a 6.5” LCD with Full HD+ and a notch. Yes, you read that correctly – the cutout is for the 16 MP selfie camera and the earpiece.
The phone ships with Android Pie and EMUI 9 on top. The battery is listed as 3,750 mAh, exactly the same as the Honor 8X, but the chipset supports charging up to 10 W.
