As for previous generations, this new Huawei P10 comes with a design similar to those of the two high-end, but with a timider technical specification.
A real commercial success, the Huawei P8 Lite cemented the importance of the line of “Lite” phones at Huawei.
So much so that the Chinese manufacturer has even come out a Huawei P8 Lite 2017 to try to capitalize on the success of this range.
It is therefore quite naturally that the manufacturer has just formalized the existence of a Huawei P10 Lite to accompany the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus.
This third member of the Huawei P10 family will not have Leica’s dual module arrangement, preferring a single module of 12 Mpx on the back (with photosites of 1.25 μm and opening at f2.0) and another Of 8 Mpx in front.
It boasts 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory (expandable via microSD up to 128 GB), a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS display and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Question connectivity, the usual Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / AC, Bluetooth 4.1 and NFC are part, in addition to two SIM ports.
We also note the presence of a fingerprint sensor on the back, and an inexplicable micro-USB port on the lower slice, while the other two Huawei P10 have adopted USB type-C this year.
The chip that animates the whole is a Kirin 658, a slightly improved revision of the 655 that is found in Honor 6X. On the OS side, it is, of course, EMUI 5.1 that we find on top of Android 7.0 Nougat.
But the most interesting is probably the posted selling price of 349 €. A price slightly higher than the P9 Lite at launch and a risk for Huawei who now sells its product “affordable” over the psychological limit of 300 €.
Especially since the Huawei P8 Lite 2017, which displays very close characteristics, sells for 100 € less. With this tactic Huawei risks to cannibalize the sales of one of its two mobiles.
Nevertheless, for the interested parties, the Huawei P10 Lite will arrive at the end of March at most dealers.
