Huawei has silently launched the third variant of Huawei P9, called the Huawei P9 Lite, in Germany. A German website named Teltarif, has reported about the launch.
As for specifications, the P9 Lite comes with a lot of identical specifications as the Huawei P9. Under the hood, the Lite variant is powered by an octa-core Kirin 650 processor paired with 3GB of RAM. The phone runs Android Marshmallow operating system, wrapped under Emotion 4.1 UI and features a 5.2-inch full HD display with 1920×1080 pixels resolution.
The device houses 16GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 128GB using microSD card. It is a hybrid dual SIM phone, which means that the second SIM card slot also doubles up as microSD card slot when required. On camera front, the P9 Lite doesn’t come with a dual camera set up on the rear like the P9 or P9 Plus. Instead, it sports a 13 mega pixel camera on the rear and an 8 mega pixel front facing camera.
The P9 and P9 Plus smartphones, on the other hand sport Leica developed dual 12 mega pixel cameras on the rear with 1.25-micron pixels and Leica SUMMARIT lenses. While one of the lenses captures light in color, the other one captures in monochrome. This set up promises sharp and detailed images even in low lighting conditions. The primary camera also comes with hybrid auto focus technology. Both smartphones sport 8 mega pixel front facing cameras.
On design front, the P9 Lite features metal body and looks similar to the P9. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear for additional security.
