Huawei Mate 9 Lite Goes Official
 

After P9 Lite series, Huawei has introduced Mate 9 Lite.

The Huawei Mate 9 has a new addition to its family. The Mate 9 Lite joins other Huawei devices such as the Mate 9, Mate 9 Porsche Design, and Mate 9 Pro. The Mate 9 Lite has become official without any media coverage or special dedicated event.

The new addition was silently listed on the website. As the Mate 9 Lite name suggests it comes with mid-range specs. It is not much of a competition in terms of performance when compared to other Mate 9 devices. However the plus point it carries is its low price among other devices.

Below are some specifications of the phone:

• 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen with 2.5D curved glass on top

• the Kirin 655 SoC with an octa-core CPU, an 8 MP selfie snapper

• 3,340 mAh battery

• It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 on top

• Dimension of phone 150.9x76.2x8.2mm

• Weight 162g

The Mate 9 Lite also carries a dual rear camera setup like its other Mate 9 siblings. However the resolution has been downgraded from 20MP and 12MP to 12MP and 2 MP respectively. The 12 MP camera has a 1.25nm pixel sensor.

It also carries a phase detection auto focus which works in approximately in 0.3 seconds. The secondary camera is able to capture depth information which enables bokeh effects to be established on photos. The Leica branding has also been discarded.

The Mate 9 Lite will be available in two hardware versions. One will have 3GB RAM and 32 GB of storage. The other version will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The Mate 9 Lite has a full metal body with a fingerprint sensor on the back.

The Phone will be available in three colours gold, gray and silver. The Pricing and availability are not yet announced.
