Honor 9 Lite Description

Take phone-photography to the next level with the Honor 9 Lite. Equipped with a dual camera system on, both, front and rear and a FullView FHD+ display, this smartphone not only lets you capture life’s best moments but it also lets you see them in a picture-perfect clarity.

More than one point of view

Honor knows seeing the world with both eyes makes a clearer view. As a pioneer of dual-camera technology, we’ve pushed creative boundaries even further with dual cameras on both the front and rear in our latest smartphone and equipped it with a FullView* FHD+ display screen to let you see what you’re capturing in its full glory.

Look your best with dual-lens front camera

The Honor 9 Lite’s front camera features an industry leading 13MP + 2MP dual-lens system, delivering crystal images with hardware-level bokeh effects. Moreover, with panorama selfie, gesture control shooting and built-in effects, enjoy your selfies with more fun.

Shoot Smarter

Portrait becomes more stunning and natural with the help of an upgraded beauty algorithm. Honor 9 Lite can recognize facial contours and features and then customize beauty effects by gender.

Catch more with rear dual camera

Honor 9 Lite, paired with a rear 13MP+2MP dual-lens camera and PDAF fast focus, taking pictures that look more natural and lively has never been easier. Moreover, the advanced wide-aperture mode enables you to refine the focus after taking photo. Honor 9 Lite allows you to capture your life’s moments with greater accuracy and artistry.

Expand your horizons with FullView

Bezels are no longer a limitation. Our pursuit of bezel-less screen enabled us to build the Honor 9 Lite with a 14.4cm (5.65”) FullView FHD+ screen* while keeping the body of a typical 13.2cm (5.2”) screen device. Its 2160×1080 FHD+ and 18:9 bezel-less display empowers you to multi-task and enjoy a more dynamic visual experience.

Shine bright

It is shining. It is slim. From the double-sided 2.5D glass to the stunning layered nano-etched design on its back, the Honor 9 Lite shines bright with its mirror-like effect*, sure to help you stand out from the crowd. On top of that, the slim integrated design and PPVD* craftsmanship frame together enable light to flow around the device, bringing a seamless visual experience.

EMUI 8.0 – Sleek, Smart, Smooth

Want a smarter and faster experience on your smartphone? EMUI 8.0 is equipped with the latest AI technology including enhanced F2FS file system, resulting in more optimized system caching and more effective defragmentation. No more worries about your device getting slower over time.

Be more powerful

The Honor 9 Lite is equipped with the latest Kirin 659 Octa-core processor, fabricated in a cutting-edge 16-nanometer process. With a CPU that runs as fast as 2.36GHz and 3GB/4GB of high-speed memory, the possibilities are endless for the users – whether they’re running multiple apps at once or playing high-performance games.

Unlock in a blink

Our fourth-generation fingerprint identification technology speeds up the ‘unlock process’ to an almost imperceptible 0.25 seconds* – and machine learning technology means the more you use your phone, the faster it unlocks. Chip-level security prevents any would-be hackers from stealing your biometric information, with your fingerprint data stored in isolated encrypted storage.

Always-on battery

Clocking in at a massive 3000mAh*, the Honor 9 Lite’s battery has been tested rigorously and optimized through our fifth-generation smart battery saving technology, allowing you to go a whole day* on a single charge. With six power-saving features, you can enjoy 86 hours offline music listening* or 13 hours offline video watching*, without worries.

Coming in loud and clear

Drawing on our 30+ years of experience in mobile communications, we’ve built the Honor 9 Lite to secure stronger signals and higher quality communications even in areas with generally weaker reception, such as remote highways, mountain areas, and amongst dense skyscrapers.
