Huawei unveils P8 Lite 2017, comes with Kirin 655 SoC

Well this is not a surprise from Huawei, is it? The Chinese company unveiled today Huawei P8 Lite 2017, a new improved edition of the 2 year old previous model, that will soon be available to all European markets.

The new edition of P8 Lite comes with a 5.2″ IPS display with 1080p resolution and glossy design that’s quite similar to the one some Honor devices have. It’s powered by the company’s mid-range SoC (Kirin 655), that packs 8 A53 cores and Mali-T830MP2 GPU, and uses 3GB of RAM for easy browsing through the menus of Android 7.0 Nougat.p8 lite 2017

Huawei P8 Lite (2017) also packs a new 12MP main camera with a f/2.0 aperture, and an 8MP selfie camera on the front, while its battery capacity remains the same as on the P9 Lite: 3,000 mAh – non-removable.

It will be available in most European markets by the end of this month at a price close to 239 Euros, which is not that bad… What do you say?

    I would say: bring us P10 Lite with Kirin 660 SoC instead of this craaap.

    A decent offer, considering it’s half the price of HTC U Play and Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017), but has roughly the same specs.

    The price makes no sense given the price of the P9 Lite.
