Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor is set to release a toned version of the Honor 8 released last year and will be recognized as Honor 8 Lite as it was seen on TENAA- China’s equivalent to the FCC; prompting the necessary measures in order to launch the device.

The Honor 8 Lite will also feature an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter, and a fingerprint scanner will be placed on the back of this smartphone. Huawei’s HiSilicon Kirin 655 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz will power this smartphone, and a 2,900mAh battery will also be a part of this package.
