In a new announcement made by Honor on official Weibo Handle, revealed that Honor 10 Lite edition would be made official on November 21st in Beijing, China. It’s another variant of Honor 10 which was launched earlier this year. There was speculation that Honor might announce Honor 10 Lite or 10i version, but now it is clear that they are going to launch Honor 10 Lite edition. It seems Honor wants to compete against Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite version which was launched last month with high-end specs.
As per the reports and rumors, it is believed that Honor 10 Lite edition will carry Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC. It will feature gradient color design as like of Xioami’s Mi 8 Lite. It will host dual rear camera and a fingerprint sensor on the back. Other specs and details have not been confirmed until now. We expect some more teasers before launch which will give us an overview of the device.
Honor has tied up with Chinese pop singer Zhu Zhengting as the Honor mobile’s Lite brand ambassador. He’s a pop singer and film actor in China born in 1996. Honor is not new in working with big stars, they have already worked with Zhao Liying, Hu Ge, Sun Yang, Bai Yu, and other public figures.
It is expected to be priced between 1000-2000 Yuan which is somewhat similar to the Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite edition. It will be out in multiple RAM and storage variants and will run Android Oreo out of the box.
Although, Xiaomi Mi 8 Lite carries a 6.26-inch Full HD+ notched display with 1080×2280 pixels resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC powers it with Adreno 512 GPU. There’s a dual shooter of 12 megapixel+ 5 megapixel on the back while a 24-megapixel sensor sits on the front.
As far as the specs are concerned, then Honor 10 Lite appears to be in better position than the Mi 8 Lite. Still, we have to wait for the official announcement before we compare it with each other.
