The Huawei P9 and P9 Plus may be official, but what about a P9 Lite to replace the old P9 Lite? Rumors of its existence continue to spread, but it may not share the same exciting camera as the P9. Here’s what we think we know about it so far.
The post No, Huawei hasn’t forgotten about the P9 Lite, as rumors of the phone continue appeared first on Digital Trends.
The Huawei P9 Lite hasn’t been officially announced just yet, but it’s already showing up as for sale from a retailer in Europe.
That retailer is Cel.ro, a Romanian-based website. The website shows the Huawei P9 Lite as available in Gold, Black, and White color variants, all sitting at around USD$ 300. We’re not sure if you can actually go through the payment process on the website, or if they’ll actually even ship it to you right away, as it’s entirely possible this is just an “early” pre-order. Then again, Cel.ro lists the Huawei P9 Lite as in stock.
Either way, we still haven’t heard anything official, but according to the retailer, the specs on the handset are still quite nice. Featuring a 5.2-inch IPS Full HD display, a HiSilicon Kirin 650 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a 3,000mAh battery. The specs are interestingly a tad different than what Huawei announced in Russia not too long ago.
As far as camera optics go, you can expect to see a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front camera, dual-SIM functionality, 4G LTE connectivity, and a fingerprint scanner. You, of course, also have Huawei’s EMUI atop of Android 6.0.
Whatever the case, it seems like the P9 Lite is available in Romania through Cel.ro. We’re not sure as to when the Huawei P9 Lite will be available from other retailers in the region. Huawei did reveal that the P9 Lite would be available in Russia in June, so it could be some time before we hear anymore details.
Meanwhile, Huawei officially took the covers off of its P9 and P9 Plus not too long ago.
We’ll have to just sit and wait for an official word from Huawei before we can get some solid details. If the launch in Russia is anything to go by, we could be waiting a couple months before we hear anything else.
Are you looking forward to the P9 Lite?
