Honor 10 Lite is all set to launch in India on January 15. The smartphone was originally teased for a January 8 unveiling, but the company has since confirmed a launch in India next week, thanks to a Flipkart teaser. The smartphone was launched in China in November, and thus its specifications are known, so can its approximate India price be estimated. Its key features include a HiSilicon Kirin 710 SoC, 24-megapixel camera, and a gradient back panel.
You can check out our first impressions of the Honor 10 Lite. As we mentioned, a Flipkart page teases the arrival of the smartphone, also tipping that it will be exclusive to the e-commerce platform. Based on the Flipkart listing, the Honor 10 Lite may launch in India in three colour options - Gradient Blue, Valley White, and Magic Night Black.
For those unaware, the Honor 10 Lite has already been launched in China in November last year. In China, the smartphone's price starts at CNY 1,399 (roughly Rs. 14,400) for the 4GB RAM/ 64GB inbuilt storage variant, CNY 1,699 (roughly Rs. 17,500) for the 6GB RAM/ 64GB storage model, and CNY 1,899 (roughly Rs. 19,500) for the 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant. We can expect the India pricing to be around the same range as the China pricing.
The dual-SIM (Nano) Honor 10 Lite runs Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box with EMUI 9.0.1 on top. The smartphone sports a 6.21-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) display with a pixel density of 415ppi.

The smartphone comes with 64GB and 128GB inbuilt storage options, both of which are expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB).
Optics includes a dual camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. At the front, there is a 24-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. It packs a 3,400mAh battery, and connectivity options in the Honor 10 Lite include dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, 3.5mm audio jack, GPS/ A-GPS, and GLONASS.
