When the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus were officially announced, one device was markedly missing: the P9 Lite, which is the successor to the P8 Lite. Now, the smartphone in question has been quietly announced in Russia, and it’s packing quite an upgrade over its predecessor.
One of the most notable upgrades the P9 Lite has is a new processor, the Kirin 650. While it still remains to be seen just how capable this mid-range processor is, it should be more powerful than the Kirin 620, which was found on the P8 Lite. Other than that, the P9 Lite’s display has also been bumped up to a 5.2-inch 1080p display – its predecessor had a 5.0-inch 720p panel instead.
As for battery life, the P9 Lite should last much longer than the P8 Lite; it is equipped with a more generous 3,000mAh battery over the small 2,200mAh cell the P8 Lite had. Rounding out the specifications of the P9 Lite are 2 or 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 13MP rear and 8MP front-facing cameras (no dual-camera setup here), a fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, as well as EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
Unfortunately, the Huawei P9 Lite’s price and availability have not been revealed yet. More likely than not, more will be revealed in the near future. Hopefully, it will arrive in Malaysia soon alongside the P9 and P9 Plus.
