Hauwei has been making some noises this year thanks to their flagship P9 smartphone touting a Leica made dual rear camera setup. Now, the Chinese smartphone maker have launched yet another device in China dubbed the Huawei G9 Lite. Incidentally the smartphone looks quite similar to the previously launched Huawei P9 Lite, with the main differences lying in the processor on the inside.
Huawei apparently hadn't announced the probable markets of their P9 Lite smartphone when it was launched earlier last month. So far it seems that the Huawei P9 Lite is for the international markets including India, Russia while China will get the G9 Lite.

Just like the Huawei P9 and 9 Plus, the recently launched Huawei G9 Lite features a slim metal unibody design. In fact its one of the better looking phones in its price range. The design is also identical to the Huawei P9 Lite which was launched a few weeks back.

Upfront the Huawei G9 Lite sports a similar 5.2 inch Full HD (1920X1080p) Full HD display as found in the P9 Lite. The display is adequately sharp and has excellent colour reproduction. In fact Huawei is well known for incorporating top of the line displays in the flagship smartphones.

Unlike the Huawei P9 and Huawei P9 Plus, the mid-range smartphone doesn't comes with a 13MP Leica designed dual rear camera. Rather it features a single 13MP f/2.0 rear camera module with dual LED Flash. Apart from that the smartphone also packs a 8MP camera on the front.

On the back the Huawei G9 Lite comes with a Fingerprint Sensor for added level of security. The sensor is placed just below the rear camera module and is capable of unlocking the device in a split second.
Huawei G9 Lite vs Huawei P9 Lite #6
The Huawei G9 Lite is priced at 1700 CNY which is roughly Rs 17,000. This makes it a smartphone to beat in this price range, especially due to its top notch aesthetics and modestly specced internals.
