Huawei P8 lite (2017) to launch as Nova lite in select markets


Huawei quietly unveiled the mid-range Huawei P8 Lite (2017) last month; however, the company is yet to bring it to the market. The device is also expected to arrive by the end of January, but unfortunately that’s unlikely to have happened. Plus, there is no official word on the smartphone’s availability. But we can expect it to be available for purchase by the end of February, or at least before the end of the current quarter.

According to smartphone leakster Evan Blass, Huawei will launch the P8 Lite (2017) as Nova lite in select markets. Aside from the name, the P8 lite (2017) and the Nova lite will be identical in other areas. The device is powered by a decent octa-core Kirin 655 processor clocked at 2.1Ghz and paired with a Mali-T830 MP2 graphics processing unit. It sports a 5.2-inch full HD display with a pixel density of 424 pixels per inch.

The P8 Lite (2017) packs a 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory that is expandable up to 256GB via the second SIM card slot.

As for optics, the P8 Lite (2017) features a 12MP rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture lens, PDAF, and an LED flash. It also features a 8MP snapper, with f/2.0 aperture lens capable of recording 1080p Full HD video.

In terms of connectivity, the P8 Lite (2017) includes Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, NFC, GPS with GLONASS, FM Radio, and microUSB 2.0. It also comes with a fingerprint scanner and a non-removable 3000mAh battery.
