Today, Huawei sub-brand Honor introduced a new member of its smartphone lineup, the Honor 10X Lite. This is the first member of the 10X family, and it succeeds the 9X Lite, bringing some notable changes, like the power button now doubling as the fingerprint sensor, rather than having the sensor on the back of the phone.
One thing that hasn't changed much from the 9X Lite is the processing power. The Honor 10X Lite has a Kirin 710A chipset, very similar to the 710 on its predecessor, and the same 128GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. One big improvement is in the battery, with the 10X Lite featuring a massive 5,000mAh unit instead of the 3,750mAh of its predecessor. The battery also supports Huawei's SuperCharge technology at 22.5W, reverse wired charging at 2.5W, and it now charges with USB Type-C instead of micro-USB.
The camera setup is also a noteworthy upgrade. The Honor 10X Lite features a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, similar to its predecessor, as well as a similar 2MP depth sensor. However, there are two new cameras here - an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens with an f/2.4 aperture, and a 2MP camera for macro photography. The front-facing camera is also 8MP, but it's now housed in a hole-punch cutout, instead of a traditional-style notch.
The Honor 10X Lite will be available in Russia starting tomorrow, November 6, for a price of 16,990 rubles, roughly €185 or $218. It will be available in other European markets soon. As with every recent Huawei smartphone, the phone won't have access to any Google services out of the box.
