5.5-inch Full HD display with 2.5D curved glass

In terms of footprint, the Mate 9 Lite is slightly smaller in comparison to its bigger siblings. It sports a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels with a 2.5D curved glass on top.

Powered by an octa-core Kirin 655 chipset

As the name itself suggests, the Mate 9 Lite comes with toned down internals. Instead of the octa-core Kirin 960 chipset, the smartphone is powered by an octa-core Kirin 655 SoC. It is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage space. The company also stated that it'll launch a slightly bumped up version -4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage space.

Dual camera setup but no Leica lens this time

Akin to the other Mates, the Mate 9 Lite also features a dual rear camera setup. But, this time around the Leica lens is absent. Also, the megapixel count is downgraded to 12MP + 2MP instead of 20MP + 12MP sensors. The 8MP camera on the front still remains the same, though.

Other features

Unlike its bigger siblings, the smartphone will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box with the company's EMUI 4.1 on top. It is backed by a 3,340mAh battery. The fingerprint sensor rests on the back. Pricing and availability of the smartphone are not yet available as of now.
