There's also a preview video posted by Honor in January:

Considering that Honor has been posting pictures and video of a new handset named Honor 9 Lite on its Facebook pages in other regions over the last 24 hours, it didn't come as much of a surprise this is the official UK launch event for that phone.

There's even a video for the handset, also posted on the global Honor Facebook page.

You can also head to the global website to find out more information about the Honor 9 Lite.

The phone sports a Kirin 659 octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM.

It'll also come with a 5.65-inch Full HD+ 18:9 display (2160 x 1080) but with a super slim bezel to keep the handset size down.

There's a 13-megapixel and 2-megapixel dual-lens camera on the rear and a similar front camera for great selfies.

It will cost £199.99 in the UK SIM-free.
