Another day and another new smartphone is all set to enter the burgeoning mid-range smartphone segment in India. This time, its Honor 10 Lite that sees the light of day, and from what seems apparent from its positioning in China, the phone is priced at Rs. 13,999.00 for 4GB variant and Rs. 17,999.00 for 6GB.
For that price, the new Honor 10 Lite comes generously featured which again is the hallmark of the Chinese strategy to win market share. Up front, it’s a 6.21-inch full-HD+ display that dominated things, with a teardrop notch at the top and a slim chin at the bottom acting as minor disruptions. The display comes with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels which makes for a pixel density of 415 ppi.
On the other side of it, its a HiSilicon Kirin 710 chipset running the show. Mated to the processor is either a 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM though there eventually are three versions of the phone on offer having different storage sizes. The base model comprises of 4 GB memory and 64 GB of storage while next in line is the model with 6 GB RAM and 64 GB of storage. The top of the line model comes with 6 GB of RAM but with 128 GB of storage. All model support external memory cards of up to 512 GB.
On the camera front, there is a dual lens setup at the rear stacked vertically along the top left corner. The camera module comprises of a 13 mp primary camera of f/1.8 aperture coupled to a secondary camera of 2 mp resolution. The front benefits from a camera of 24 mp and having a focal length of f/2.0. The phone runs Android 9.0 Pie right out of the box with the company’s proprietary EMUI 9.0.1 running on top. Keeping the lights on is a 3400 mAh battery which should be enough to sustain things the entire day.
Then there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack as well, as is a rear mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone is compliant with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, GPS/ A-GPS, and GLONASS connectivity technologies.
