The next midrange beast?

Just like the regular P9, the P9 Lite features a 5.2 inch FHD screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, but without the 2.5D glass this time. In terms of internal power, this runs with the new Kirin 650 chip clocked at 1.7 GHz. What's interesting there is it's paired with the top-end Mali T830 GPU which is designed to load most of the modern games fairly well.

You'll also get 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of expandable internal storage and a pretty large 3,000 mAh of battery capacity inside.

Capable cameras w/ fully loaded software

While it's not "co-engineered" with Leica anymore, Huawei didn't cut corners with its camera for the price as it has a 13 MP f/2.0 rear camera w/ LED flash and 8 MP selfie camera.

What's surprising here is it has full manual control, food mode, different light painting modes, time-lapse, beautify, slow motion and its impressive super night mode. Lastly, it's one of the rare devices that supports 1080p videos with manual settings on both back and front cameras.

Other features

The P9 Lite is LTE capable, has a hybrid dual SIM slot, advanced fingerprint sensor that works like at trackpad and runs on a much optimized edition of EMUI 4.1 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.
