At the Five Palm Jumeirah Hotel in Dubai, UAE, leading smartphone maker Honor has officially unveiled their latest budget offering called the Honor 10 Lite. The smartphone is the cheaper version of the Honor 10 premium mid-range smartphone that was released earlier this year.
While the new device resembles most of the other models in their portfolio, the new Honor 10 Lite features a larger 6.21-inch IPS display as opposed to the 5.84-inch screen of the Honor 10. The aspect ratio of the screen remains to be almost the same, rocking at 19:5:9, and the resolution is surprisingly sharper at 1080 x 2340. However, the Honor 10 Lite comes with 415ppi of brightness with the display. Powering the device is the Kirin 710 processor with eight computing cores, four of which are the Cortex A73 cores for higher performance and the remaining are Cortex A53 cores for power saving operations.
The device comes with 3GB RAM and runs on the latest Android 9.0 OS (Pie). There is internal storage of 64GB that’s quite sufficient for many users out there and if ever the need arises for more, you will be able to expand using the MicroSD card and go all the way up to 512GB to store all your videos and images. Speaking of which, the Honor 10 Lite comes with a dual-lens camera configuration, featuring a 13MP image sensor with F1.8 as its aperture and a 2MP depth sensor to help create natural looking bokeh. The camera also features phase detection autofocus for fast focusing of the subject and that comes to use even in videos. The maximum video resolution that can be recorded is at 1080p at 30fps. There is also a massive 24MP selfie camera on the front side that houses a lens with an aperture of F2.0. The front camera also is capable of recording 1080p videos.
While most of the smartphone markers are switching towards USB Type-C, Honor decided to stick to the traditional microUSB 2.0 port for the Honor 10 Lite. On the contrary, the Honor 10 has a USB Type-C port. That said, the Honor 10 Lite packs a 3400 mAh battery, which is the same capacity of the Honor 10 smartphone. The smartphone also has a 3.5mm audio jack for those who just hate the idea of using adaptors for USB Type-C ports and the fingerprint scanner is mounted in the rear side. The smartphone also has the same old mesmerizing color effects found in many other Honor smartphones and comes in red, black and blue colors. The Honor 10 Lite is officially priced at AED 799 in the UAE.
