Huawei P8 Lite breaks cover in the United States
Back in April, Huawei unveiled two flagship devices, the Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Max. Another member of the P8 generation which, baring last minute changes, didn’t make it to their release, was launched in the United States today.
The Huawei P8 Lite costs $249.99 in the land of the free and yes, the pricing covers the total ownership of the phone without any contract agreements or SIM cards. Amazon, BestBuy and Huawei’s online store (and possibly several other retailers) will be offering the Huawei flagship in the US starting today.
In terms of specs, the P8 Lite comes with a brushed plastic cover that measures 143 x 70.6 x 7.7 mm, weighing a total of 131 grams. The body houses a 5-inch 720p screen, 13-megapixel primary camera and 5MP front-facing webcam.
For software, the US model boots on Android 4.4.4 KitKat with Huawei’s home-brewed Emotion UI. The handset is powered by 2GB of RAM and 1.2GHz octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 620 with support for LTE speeds reaching as high as 150 megabytes per second. Electricity is supplied by a sealed Li-Ion 2200mAh battery.
