Huawei launches “without warning” the new Huawei P8 Lite 2017



Huawei launches “without warning” the new Huawei P8 Lite 2017


Huawei has just launched the new Huawei P8 Lite 2017 without notice. We can talk at length about Huawei’s “Lite” models, but this time what we will do is focus our eyes directly on the new model launched by the Chinese company. The presentation has been carried out in Germany and the launch price for this new Huawei model is 249 euros.

For now we must warn that it is a mid-range device and that it makes us strange to see the name P8 Lite again when we already have the P9 Lite, but it is that it is an update of the model presented in 2015 and this is what makes us add the year in the name.

To give us an idea of ​​the specifications we leave this small comparison table with some differences between the latest models with Huawei Lite designation:

Huawei P8 Lite (2017) Huawei P8 Lite Huawei P9 Lite
Screen 5.2 inches 5 inches 5.2 inches
Resolution 1,920 × 1,080 pixels 1,280 × 720 pixels 1,920 × 1,080 pixels
Processor Kirin 655 Kirin 620 Kirin 650
Android Android 7.0 Android 6.0 Android 6.0
RAM 3 GB 2 GB 3 GB
Memory 16 GB 16 GB 16 GB
Main chamber 12 MP 13 MP 13 MP
Front camera 8 MP 5 MP 8 MP
Touch ID Yes no Yes
Battery 3,000 mAh 2,200 mAh 3,000 mAh
Dual-SIM Yes Yes Yes
LTE, NFC, microSD Yes Yes Yes

It is quite shocking when we look at the specifications and see that the screen is the same as the P9 Lite model, 5.2 inch with resolution Full HD and has a somewhat more powerful processor than the rest of the models including the P9 Lite, the Kirin 655 that mounts the new Honor 6X presented at CES in Las Vegas. This is normal since we are facing a new model, but We are surprised that a camera with slightly less MP than in the rest is mounted in the main camera of these teams.

Definitely it is a new Huawei model with an old name and therefore we must be careful to differentiate it well at the time of launching the purchase. In any case, the new Huawei goes on sale in Germany and at the moment it is unknown if it will be available for purchase in Spain.
