Specifications and Features
The Huawei Mate 10 Lite certainly has an impressive design. With minimum bezels, aluminum built, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and no home button, the phone does present itself gracefully.
The display is a FHD (1080p) 5.9” IPS LCD panel with 409 ppi and a 2.5D curved glass over it.
Coming over to the internals, the phone is powered by an Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 Processor, clocked at 2.36Ghz and 1.7Ghz. The phone runs on the Android 7.1 Nougat, with Huawei’s own EMUI 5.1 running over it. The phone is also expected to receive the Android Oreo 8.0 updates in the near future.
As far as the storage is concerned the Mate 10 Lite provides 4 Gigs of Ram and 64 GB of internal storage, which should be enough for an average user.
The Mate 10 Lite includes a 3340 mAh battery, that should provide enough juice to last through the day however, the absence of fast charge here may significantly increase the charging time for a battery as big.
Other features include a snappy fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, compass and an LED notification light. Notably, the USB Type-C and Gyroscope are also missing along with the fast charge capability.
The Huawei Mate 10 Lite actually sports 4 cameras, with 2 being on the front and 2 on the back. It is amongst the very few smartphones to include 4 cameras, that too in this price segment.
On the rear we have a 16MP+2MP Dual Camera setup, alongside an LED Flash, HDR and phase detection autofocus.
Surprisingly, the front selfie cameras of this phone are said to be better than those at the back. It has 13MP+2MP dual cameras at the front, for epic selfies with portrait mode.
