Huawei announces the P9 Lite, will release it in May
Not too long after unveiling the P9 and P9 Plus, Huawei this week officially announced the P9 Lite - the third (and possibly last) member of its P9 series of handsets.

As already reported (when we saw leaked images of the new phone), the Huawei P9 Lite has a fingerprint scanner on the back, and sports a 5.2-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels - just like the P9. Of course, there are differences between the two devices: while they're both made out of metal, and are roughly of the same size, the P9 Lite doesn't have the dual 12 MP rear camera of the P9, instead offering a regular 13 MP rear snapper. Moreover, the processor inside the P9 Lite is an octa-core Kirin 650, which isn't as powerful as the octa-core Kirin 955 that the P9 has.

The P9 Lite offers 16 GB of expandable storage space, 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM (depending on region), and a 3000 mAh battery. Software-wise, the handset is similar to the P9, as it's running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 UI.

The Huawei P9 Lite will be available in Europe starting May for €299. At the moment, we don't know if the smartphone will be released in the US, but, if that happens, we assume it's not going to cost more than $300 unlocked.
