Remember the Huawei Honor 6X? It’s the handset that brought the dual camera thingie in the area of more affordable devices and now it’s getting an international release, with name change bundled. The smartphone is going to be known as the Huawei Mate 9 Lite.
We’ve already seen quite a few versions of the Mate 9, including the main one, the Porsche Design one and the Pro one. The official listing has the Huawei Mate 9 as a midranger running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with EMUI 4.1 on top, although the other Mate 9 models went with Android Nougat and EMUI 5. Huawei Mate 9 Lite features a 5.5 inch Full HD screen, as well as an octa core Kirin 655 processor, in lieu of the Kirin 960 chipset.
There’s 3 GB of RAM here, plus 32 GB of storage and Huawei claims that it’ll also launched a bumped up version of the Mate 9 Lite, with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. Huawei Mate 9 Lite also has a dual camera, as shown in the pics, but there’s no Leica tech here. It includes a 12 MP + 2 MP setup and upfront there’s an 8 MP selfie shooter.
Finally, we get a 3340 mAh battery and a fingerprint sensor at the back. The device will be available in gold, grey and silver. There’s no official pricing for this model, but the Honor 6X used to go for $148 at launch.
