The Huawei P9 Lite is now official and it was recently launched in Germany for a price of €299 (US$336). The smartphone will start selling in the country from next month in two color variants, gold and black.
It was recently reported in a German site Teltarif, the Huawei P9 will go on sale across Europe in May. While reports about its Europe launch is confirmed, it is still not clear whether the device will come to the U.S. anytime soon.
Going by the specs, the new smartphone features a 5.2-inches display with a full HD resolution, similar to the P9. On the rear side, you will notice a fingerprint scanner that lets users access the features of the phone with the use of their finger impression.
There’s a major difference between the P9 Lite and its former model. Unlike its predecessor, the P9 Lite doesn’t include the Leica dual 12MP camera combo. Other than this, the handset is powered by a less powerful Kirin 650 octa-core processor. On the contrary, the P9 was fuelled by a much more powerful processor, the octa-core Kirin 955.
There are other surprises packed in the device- a dual-SIM support, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 3,000mAH battery. As far as the OS is concerned, the device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. Also, the device includes the company’s own EMUI 4.1 user interface.
Soon with the release of this new device, the P9 Max with a 6.9-inch display would be a small tablet with smartphone functionality. There is no confirmed report yet on the new device, but it is expected in the coming weeks for an alleged price of $700.
