Huwaei is all set to launch a toned down variant of the popular Honor 10 smartphone. Christened as Honor 10 Lite, this toned down version would pack less powerful specs and features compared to its predecessor, Honor 10. With everything under wraps, no official announcement has yet been made regarding its release date. Since its launch back in may 2018, the Honor 10 has witnessed a profitable market in India. The specification details could be seen on the TENAA website, even though no such official spec sheet has been released by the company.
The listing website TENAA has published 3 variants of undisclosed upcoming Honor devices. Expected to be the three variants of the Honor Lite – Honor HRY-AL00, HRY-AL00a, and HRY-TL00 model numbers are yet to be updated on the specification details on the website.
With much hype over its release in India, smartphone enthusiasts are eyeing the market for its price details. The Honor 10, in its initial launch, was priced at Rs. 24,999. This model, however, is expected to cap under Rs. 20,000, having toned down features of its predecessor. With dual cameras becoming trendy in the latest smartphone specs, Huwaei too is expected to pack its Honor 10 Lite with dual cameras, namely 13 MP+2MP set up in the rear and led flash module below its sensors. The front camera too is expected to sport a 16MP selfie camera.
Anticipated to be powered by a Kirin 670 chipset, the SoC by Honor is based on 12nm manufacturing process and is integrated with Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU) designed for ensuring smooth functioning of AI features. Various other details and reports regarding its release have cropped up the internet. With everything under speculation, the smartphone is expected to sport a 5.84-inch display with a 2280×1080 pixel resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio.
Since it is a skimmed version of the Honor 10, it would probably pack a mediocre battery of 2900mAh. Also, the device is expected to run on the latest Android Pie 9.0 based on EMUI9. The other features that are normally seen in a smartphone will also be present in Honor 10 Lite.
With the company aiming to release a quality phone with a small budget, it will surely cut costs on design and other flagship specifications that we saw on the Honor 10. The pricing too has been capped under Rs. 20K so, consumers wouldn’t mind choosing it over the Honor 10, that was priced at Rs. 25K.
