Huawei has been one of the most active smartphone manufacturers this year. The company has re-introduced their Mate 8 flagship phablet back in January, and alongside with that device, they’ve released the MediaPad M2 10.0 tablet. This Chinese smartphone manufacturer has also unveiled their new P9 flagships recently, the Huawei P9 and P9 Plus. In addition to all that, they’ve released the MediaPad T1 7.0 Plus tablet in the Philippines earlier today, and will introduce a couple of more devices in the coming weeks, read on.
The company will announce the Honor 5C on April 28th, and earlier today they’ve confirmed that the Honor V8 is coming on May 10th. One would think that’s enough, but there’s one device we’re missing here, and that’s the Huawei P9 Lite. That handset has been leaking for a while now, and considering it was not launched alongside the P9 and P9 Plus, it was to be expected Huawei will introduce it soon. Well, in addition to all the leaks and what not, the P9 Lite has now been certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) as well. As it’s usually the case, TENAA’s listing confirmed not only the design of this phone for us, but also its specifications. According to TENAA’s listing, the Huawei P9 Lite will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display, along with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The phone will be fueled by an octa-core SoC running at 2.0GHz, which is quite probably the company’s Kirin 650 processor. The 13-megapixel shooter will be placed on the back of the P9 Lite, and an 8-megapixel snapper will be available on the phone’s front side. Android 6.0 Marshmallow will come pre-installed here with Huawei’s Emotion UI installed on top of it. The 2,900mAh battery will also be a part of this offering, and it will not be removable.
The Huawei P9 Lite will be made out of metal, and will sport a rear-facing fingerprint scanner, as you can see in the images down below. TENAA’s listing says that the device will be available in Black, White and Gold color options, and that it will measure 146.8 x 72.6 x 7.5mm, and weighs 143 grams. That is pretty much it, all that remains at this point is for Huawei to actually unveil this smartphone, stay tuned.
