The newly released honor 9 lite smartphone by Huawei brand Honor will be on sale in Germany, Italy, Spain, France, and the UK with a price tag of 229 euros, estimated to be about Rs. 18,200. It is expected to come in three different colour options, the Midnight Black, the Glacier Grey, and the Sapphire Blue, and these will be on sale through the HiHonor online site.
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite smartphone was launched late last year, in December 2017, in India at a starting price of Rs. 10,999. Although the smartphone device is made available in two distinct variants in China and India only, with a 3gb RAM and 32gb ROM storage capacity as well as a 4gb RAM and 64gb ROM storage capacity, only one variant was launched in Western Europe, which is the 3gb RAM configuration and a 32g ROM storage capacity. The smartphone device comes with a 5.65-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 2160 pixels at a PPI of 428 pixels per inch.
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite device is powered by 1.7GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 processor and comes with a 3gb RAM configuration. The device has a 32gb of internal storage which can be expandable, up to 256GB with a microSD card. As for the specifications of the camera, the Huawei Honor 9 Lite smartphone device comes with a 13-megapixel rear primary camera accompanied by PDAF autofocus lens and a LED flash, as well as a 2-megapixel camera in front for selfies.
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite runs on Android 8.0 Oreo and as well powered by a non-removable battery capacity of 3000mAh. It measures 151mm (millimetres) in height, 71.9mm in width, as well as a thickness of 7.6mm (151.00mm x 71.90mm x 7.60mm) and weighs about 149 grams.
The Huawei Honor 9 Lite smartphone comes with a hybrid dual SIM configuration (GSM and GSM) that admits a Nano-SIM and a Nano-SIM for each SIM slot.

Available sensors on board the device include the Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Compass Magnetometer (digital compass), Gyroscope, and Accelerometer.
When the Huawei Honor 9 lite device was launched in India, it was claimed that the device went out of stock in a space of 6 minutes of being available through its premier flash sale via Flipkart, which held on Sunday, 21st January, at about 12 am IST. In a statement released on Monday by the Huawei company, it was said that over 150 units of the smartphone device were sold per second during the first flash sale. This sold-out response for the Huawei Honor 9 Lite device helps establish a fact that smartphone users want a brand new wholesome experience with great meaningful innovations. We, therefore, look forward to the response of the International Market, starting from Western Europe, as it concerns purchasing the Huawei Honor 9 lite device.
