The device is equipped with a fingerprint scanner as well and the phone runs on the latest EMUI 8 based on Android 8.0 Oreo.

The Honor 9 Lite comes in three colours – Midnight Black, Glacier Grey and, Sapphire Blue. The phone can be at a price of Rs 11,999 for the first variant and Rs 14,999 for the second variant. There is a special launch price of Rs 10,999 for Citi Bank users on the first variant.

The device is here to compete directly with the likes of Xiaomi Note 4 and Mi A1. The device has been priced at a pretty affordable amount and the features it provides are in line with Xiaomi’s popular low-end devices. However, can we expect the same level of performance from the Honor 9 Lite?
