Huawei P8 Lite (2017) is the latest smartphone unveiled by the Chinese manufacturer and is coming soon in quite a few European markets. This new Lite model is strangely named as a successor to the two-year-old P8 Lite even though it also improves on the P9 Lite.

However, the device does not feature the same design that was found in its predecessor. Instead, Huawei opted to go for an all-new look that is reminiscent of the Huawei Honor 8 which was launched late in 2016.

Huawei P8 Lite (2017) is powered by an octa-core Kirin 655 A53 processor with Mali-T830MP2 GPU. It packs 3GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage (expandable up to 128GB via micro SD card). The smartphone features a 12MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. There’s 8MP front camera as well.

When it comes to the cameras, the device features a 12MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP front-facing camera, which should be enough for most selfie lovers. The battery on the device is the same non-removable 3,000mAh battery featured in the Huawei P9 Lite.

Meanwhile we heard that Huawei P8 Lite (2017) might launch in Latin America as Huawei P9 Lite (2017). And if all the guff wasn't enough, Huawei is expected to launch a Huawei P10 Lite in the next couple of weeks as part of the new Huawei P10 series. Someone obviously didn't think this through.
