It has become a tradition for Huawei to announce alongside its flagship, a toned-down version that gets the ‘Lite’ suffix. Although this year’s flagship, the Huawei P10 is yet to be released, a toned-down version is already in the works. A few days ago, a device said to be the Huawei P10 Lite was spotted on Geekbench.
The phone with model number HUAWEI WAS-LX1A runs Android 7.0, has 4GB of RAM and is equipped with an octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. For the benchmark results, the device scores 779 points in the single-core test and 3023 points in the multi-core test. The results are similar to what you will get from other mid-range devices like the Redmi 4 Prime.
Earlier this month, another Huawei device with model number WAS-AL00 was certified by TENAA. The device also has 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and runs Android 7.0, though its chip is clocked at 2.1GHz.
We don’t know if Huawei will be giving the P10 Lite any of the special features from the flagship but the chances are pretty slim. Take for example dual cameras. Fitting the P10 Lite with dual cameras will put it in direct competition with the Honor 6X. So Huawei might want to play safe and just leave it with a single camera. One thing we are sure it will have is NFC as the P9 Lite (select models) has it. Another feature we presume might make it to the P10 Lite is USB Type-C
