On the outside, the Honor 10 Lite is bigger than its predecessor. The front-facing fingerprint sensor has been moved to the rear giving the display more real estate on the front as well as slimmer bezels. The device sports a 6.2-inch IPS LCD display with 83.1-inch screen-to-body ratio.
On the rear, there’s a dual camera setup consisting of the primary 13 MP lens with f/1.8 aperture plus a secondary 2MP depth sensing lens. Also, the camera arrangements have been modified to be aligned horizontally to each other. On the front, a 24MP camera with scene mode and facial unlock is on board for selfie duties and biometric authentication. This is the same camera used on the Honor 10.

Coupled with 4GB (up to 6GB) of RAM and Mali-G51 MP4, the Octa-core CPU with a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz will bring on operate decently; almost as fast as the standard Honor 10.
Per storage, users will be able to choose between variants with either 64GB or 128GB of built-in memory. Interestingly, unlike its predecessor, the Honor 10 Lite sports a hybrid micro SD card slot that permits storage expansion up to 512GB.

4GB + 64GB — approx $US 202
