While the former two have a gradual fade from light to dark and a luminescent progression effect, the latter two shows off a glossy texture with a chic and reflective look. To further add to its looks, the HONOR 10 Lite also comes with a dewdrop notch, that increases the screen-body ratio for a far better viewing experience.
The HONOR 10 Lite also comes with a four-sided curved 3D design, giving it more rounded corners and a better overall grip.

The on-board AI also recognizes up to 8 different scenarios, finding the best settings for the perfect selfie. The camera also packs studio-like effects, for those finishing touches.
On the rear, the HONOR 10 Lite comes with a dual lens setup of 13MP and 2MP, with f/1.8 and f/2.4 aperture. Pairing it up with the AI, and AIS, professional photos can be taking with ease, even under the most limited light.
Power under the hood
The HONOR 10 Lite packs the new Kirin 710, one of the most powerful chipsets in the market, which works with the flagship level Cortex-A73 core to provide smoother, seamless performance. In terms of storage, the HONOR comes with both 32GB and 64GB, offering users even more space in which to store their files.
The HONOR 10 Lite is also suitable for gaming, thanks to the GPU Turbo 2.0, which is the future of graphics processing acceleration technology. With GPU Turbo 2.0, users are promised a better gaming experience, with a 36% reduction in input latency, and a much smoother performance overall.
The HONOR 10 Lite is also powered by a massive 3,400 battery, promising longer usage time between charges.
A true ‘Smart'-phone
While the new EMUI 9.0 ensures that the system is completely optimized for the hardware while also boosting performance, it ensures that Artificial Intelligence is more accessible with HiVision, a travel, translation and shopping assistant. The AI-enabled mobile communication technology also increases the quality of calls, even in the noisiest of environments. The AI also makes sure that users will not get disconnected thanks to the new Elevator Mode.
