A few weeks ago Huawei announced the P8 Lite (2017) at CES 2017 as a successor to its predecessor 2015 edition of the P8 Lite. According to a report based on a Twitter post by leaker Evan “@evleaks” Blass claimed that Huawei P8 Lite will be sold in some countries under a different name – the Huawei Nova Lite. Both show out the same phone and the slogan, “Power Without Pause”. But the post on Twitter post did not say the market that the phone would be sold under the Nova Lite brand. Huawei might probably want its phone to market with the new name in places where the P8 Lite was not sold before.
The Huawei Huawei Nova Lite/ P8 Lite (2017) features a 5.2-inch Full HD display. Powering the device is the Kirin 655 octa-core chipset, which is packed with 3GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage. It also comes with a 12MP main camera at the back and an 8MP front-facing selfie camera. Finally, all features will be powered by a 3,000mAh non-removable battery, a fingerprint scanner placed below the main cmera, and the smartphone will run on the Huawei’s latest EMUI 5.0 user interface based on Android 7.0 Nougat.
The phone has already been available in the UK and parts of Europe, under the P8 Lite (2017) branding. Customers in UK can purchase the phone for just £185 without a contract, while other parts of Europe need to pay for €240 to own it. There will be three color options sold in Black, White and Gold under both the P8 Lite (2017) and the Nova Lite branding. There’s no information about the time when the phone will officially go on sale in the US, and we are not sure which brand name will be chosen.
