honor 9 Lite

Following the debut of its top-slinging View10 flagship device, honor today brings a shiny, affordable sibling to Malaysian consumers—the honor 9 Lite. The mid-ranger is honor’s first quad-camera smartphone, which is available exclusively from Shopee.

Unfortunately for Malaysians, we never got to enjoy the top-of-the-line honor 9 officially. Strangely, honor chose to bring in the honor 8 Pro and latest honor View10 instead.

The honor 9 Lite, the more accessible sibling, offers plenty of kit for its price point.

The device is anything but low profile with a mirror-like reflective glass back and a choice of two stand-out colours: Sapphire Blue and Glacier Grey.

Under the hood, the honor 9 Lite rocks the latest octa-core Kirin 659 chip, the same workhorse that powers the nova 2i.

There’s 3GB of RAM coupled with 32GB of storage, and if that’s insufficient, you can expand storage up to 256GB via microSD.

On the front of the device is a brilliant 5.65-inch Full HD+ 18:9 screen ratio display (2160×1080 @ 428PPI).

In the camera department, the honor 9 Lite features identical dual-camera setups on the front and rear. The rear is a 13MP (RGB) + 2MP (depth) dual-lens system with PDAF and 5P lens.

The front, meanwhile, features a 13MP (RGB) + 2MP (depth) camera setup, which honor says is as good as the rear camera. There’s a wide-angle panoramic function, and an upgraded beauty algorithm that’s adjustable via gender.

The new gesture control function lets you use your palm as a camera trigger. Just smile and wave, boys, smile and wave.

Keeping the device juiced is a commendable 3,000mAh battery that is claimed to give you keep you cracking for a full day. The downside is that it still uses micro-USB although this shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering the price point of the device.

It runs Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top.
