Huawei P9 lite mini appears in Hungary, a 5" version of the 5.2" P9 lite

Peter, 28 August 2017

Huawei seems willing to stretch a flagship name quite a bit to promote its less premium devices. A Huawei P9 lite mini has appeared in Hungary, apparently a slightly smaller version of the P9 lite.

The phone has a 5” 720p screen (down from 5.2” 1080p) and runs Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top. The chipset is - MediaTek MT6737T - has a measly quad-core CPU, but at least the 3,020mAh battery promises to last two days on a single charge. The microUSB port on the bottom is not terribly exciting to see.

The P9 lite mini will measure 8.05mm thick, which again is a minor downgrade compared to the 7.5mm thick non-mini model. The phone borrows the round fingerprint reader of the P9 lite (2017), but the LED flash flips to the other side of the camera so it’s not the same model. To be fair, we couldn’t expect much from a phone that’s both “lite” and “mini”.

At least not much seems to have changed in the camera department. The main cam still has 13MP resolution, though the front camera dropped to 5MP and gained a dedicated LED flash along the way.

The watch appears to be on sale now for €190. It premieres as a dual SIM phone, but a single SIM version will be available in autumn. Launch colors are black, silver and gold.

Thanks for the extra info, Diogo Venade!

I don't think any one who has heard of honor 8 lite will bypass it and buy this low end 720p phone.
