The 2017 brand new Huawei P8 Lite smartphone has been announced by the company. The Huawei P8 Lite is a successor of Huawei P8, so it carries a design similar to it but is a more affordable offering that comes with a midrange chipset and a slightly lower resolution camera. But the phone has very similar specs as the P9 Lite and not the P8 Lite that debuted in 2015.
What’s the difference in Huawei P8 Lite and its predecessor?
The Huawei P8 Lite smartphone has a glass back and mated to a smooth metallic frame unlike the P8 and P9 series. And that is what gives the phone a lustrous appearance. But the biggest differentiator in Huawei P8 Lite comes in the form of the innards.
