It looks like Huawei has recently introduced yet another new mid-range Android smartphone called the Huawei P8 Lite (2017). Not to be confused with the original Huawei P8 Lite that was launched back in 2015 or the Huawei P9 Lite that was introduced earlier last year, the P8 Lite is a 2017 variant with improved specifications.
First up, the Huawei P8 Lite (2017) is quite similar to the Huawei P9 Lite in terms of specs. It comes with a 5.2” Full HD display, an improvement over the 5” 720p display found on the original Huawei P8 Lite. There is also a generous 3,000mAh built-in battery on board, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, and a fingerprint sensor located at the back of the device.
However, what sets the P8 Lite (2017) apart from the other two mid-range P-series smartphones is that it is powered by the latest Kirin 655 octa-core processor; the original Huawei P8 Lite is powered by a Kirin 620 processor, while the P9 Lite features the Kirin 650 processor. Other specs include a 12MP f/2.0 rear camera, 8MP front camera, dual-SIM, LTE, NFC, and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
