5.2-inch mid-tier handset will be available from O2, EE, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse and costs £239 SIM-free
Huawei has launched a new mid-tier member of its P9 smartphone range, the Huawei P9 Lite.
The new device follows the P9 and P9 Plus, which were unveiled in London in front of more than 2,000 journalists last month.
The P9 Lite comes with a 5.2-inch screen and an aluminium body that is 7.5mm in depth. It packs a HiSilicon Kirin 650 octo-core processor and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
The P9 Lite has a standard 16GB of internal storage, plus space for a microSD card which can support up to 128GB of expanded memory.
It has an 13 megapixel camera on the rear and an 8MP sensor on the front, plus a fingerprint scanner.
Huawei UK&I consumer BG sales director Rhys Saunders said: “With the P9 smartphone family, Huawei are offering users a superior smartphone experience. The latest edition to the family, the P9 Lite, with its lower price point, is no exception to this.
“The phone has a premium and stylish look and feel, a high-resolution rear and front camera, as well as a powerful battery, making this a perfect companion for budding photographers on the go.”
The P9 Lite will go on sale in the UK at the end of May, costing £239 SIM-free. It will be available from EE, O2, Vodafone and Carphone Warehouse.
