The device will be available in different variants, one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage that will cost 1,099 Yuan (around Rs.), and a 4 GB of RAM variant with 32 GB of space and this will cost 1,399 Yuan (around Rs.). Additionally, the device also comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which will cost 1,599 Yuan (around Rs.).
As for the cameras, the smartphone comes with a 12 MP primary camera as well as an 8 MP selfie camera. Honor 8 Lite features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 3,000 mAh battery, and expandable storage (up to 128 GB).
