Today Huawei announced two new products in face of the Honor AM51 Bluetooth Speaker, and the Huawei Honor 9 Youth Edition (aka Huawei Honor 9 Lite). The latter is the slightly lightened variant of the regular 9th-gen Honor flagship launched earlier this year. But like other smartphones launched by this company in last two-three months, it adopts the full-screen technology that is the selling point of this handset. As for now, we are offering to learn everything about the Honor 9 Lite via the first hands-on photos provided by PCPOP and by recalling its key features.
The most attractive feature of this handset is considered to be its appearance with a double-sided 2.5D glass body. It uses the second-gen mirror design with an increased brightness of 255 as well as an increased clarity of 10%. The housing passes through several processes to provide the best view.
As for the key features, the Huawei Honor 9 Youth Edition sports a 5.65-inch screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Though its screen size is closer to 6 inches, the display panel is placed on a body regularly seen on 5.2-inch devices. Thus this phone is ideal for single-hand operations.
On the back, we have a dual-camera using a 13+2MP sensors combination. But what’s amazing, the same camera is located on the front as well. The latter supports facial recognition as well as 3D stereoscopic beauty. It also provides a bokeh effect at a hardware level.
The rest of features include a 3000mAh battery, EMUI 8.0, and Kirin 659 chip, which is paired with different memory options. The 3+32GB variant is priced at 1199 yuan ($182), the 4+32GB variant is available at 1499 yuan ($227), and the 4+64GB model comes at 1799 yuan ($273).
