Huawei launches P8 Lite with 5-inch HD display and Kirin 620 SoC

By April 30th, 2015 AT 5:07 PM

Smartphone OEMs these days usually make it a point to launch a budget version of their premium flagship devices. It helps them establish a strong presence in the mid-range segment and also to cater to a wider set of audiences.

Huawei recently launched the P8 flagship device and has now launched a slightly toned down version of the same. Dubbed as the Huawei P8 Lite, the smartphone has been launched in Germany and will witness a global roll-out in a phased manner.

Huawei-P8-LiteThe P8 Lite looks quite similar to the P8 and Huawei has tried to carry over the design as well as build quality of the flagship to the mid-ranger. However, it comes with a 5-inch HD display and gets the option of Snapdragon 615/Kirin HiSilicon 620 being present depending upon the variant. It shares quite a lot of its specifications with the recently launched Honor 4C, but it runs Android 5.0 Lollipop instead and has a slightly premium touch to it.

The P8 Lite will be available in Black, White and Gold colour options, for an approximate price of 249 Euros (roughly Rs 17,700). It will go on sale in mid-May in Germany, after which, we can expect the global roll-out of the device.
