As with every major release, Huawei has also prepared a “lite” version of their flagship smartphone. The P10 Lite shares many of the same design cues as its more expensive brother, but the specs have been toned down (and the dual cameras removed) to make it more affordable than the two recently announced flagships.
Huawei P10 Lite specs
- Kirin 655 octa-core processor
- 4GB of RAM
- 5.2-inch full HD IPS display, 1920 x 1080 resolution
- 32GB of expandable storage
- 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, LED flash
- 8-megapixel front camera
- Dual SIM
- 3G, LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, A-GPS, fingerprint scanner
- 3000mAh battery
- Android 7.0 Nougat
The P10 Lite sheds the Kirin 960 processor for a more sedate Kirin 655 octa-core processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The screen is a 5.2-inch full HD display which is slightly larger than the P10. The P10 Lite also sheds the USB Type-C connector for a regular micro USB port, and the front-mounted fingerprint scanner has been relegated to the rear.
There’s also no Leica-branded dual camera on the front or back – you’ll have to settle for the 12-megapixe, f/2.2 aperture rear camera and 8-megapixel front camera. The 3,000mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the phone is powered by Android Nougat.
The P10 Lite is expected to be priced at 349 Euros or Php 18.5K.
