Honor 8 Lite with EMUI 5.0 to launch in India next week

We called the Honor 8, the most prettiest design we have ever held in our hands. But Honor 8 was priced in the premium segment and I was not well received in India, as much as it was, globally. But Honor is a company which always learns from its mistakes and rectifies. Honor 8 Lite is all set to be launched in India next week. Honor 8 Lite will have EMUI 5.0 out of the box. Here are the details of Honor 8 Lite and EMUI 5.0.

Honor 8 Lite will look similar to Honor 8 with its beautiful shiny glass back and metal rims. But it wont have a dual camera setup. Under the hood it will run on Kirin 655 processor, which we saw in Honor 6x. Here are the highlights of Honor 8 Lite.
