Honor 10 Lite to launch soon in India : Here’s its specs!

The Honor 10 Lite is soon going to be launched in India. Should you purchase it or not? We are going to take a look at what features this phone possesses and is it a cost efficient smartphone or not?

Honor 10 Lite Specifications

Honor 10 Lite to launch soon in India

The Honor 10 Lite has a 6.21 inch Full Hd+ screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. It runs on Android Pie and has the Emui 9.0 which is the latest in the market. It has a really glossy design on its back panel which makes it a really attractive device. It runs on Kirin 710 which is a really power efficient and fast processor. It comes with 4Gb Ram and 64Gb storage.

The Honor 10 Lite phone has a dual rear camera of 13+2 megapixels while having a front facing camera of 24 megapixels, effectively making it a selfie device. It has a 3400Mah battery which can be charged with a 10W charger. The phone has a beautiful waterdrop notch.

Honor 10 Lite Price

Although official prices have not been revealed, it might have a price of approximately Rs 13,000. Any more than that and the phone would not be aggressively priced and make it sound less than what it actually is!

Review

The best thing about the Honor 10 Lite device is its looks and notch and the processor. The bad thing is the unavailability of fast charging on this one but we can’t have everything in a budget device thus it is justified. What will make it a good smartphone is the price on it and as we have said that a price much more than 13000Rs will effectively lead to a downfall for this device, otherwise the device will be a hit!
