Huawei has released a new Lite handset, this time piggybacking on the recently-announced Huawei P10 flagship

The new Huawei P10 Lite adopts some of the P10's design principles, with a narrow bezel and compact body carrying a 5.2-inch full HD display. It is finished in gold or black, with the promise of more colours in the future.

It's powered by a mid-range Kirin 658 chipset but offers 4GB RAM and there's a fingerprint scanner to security and convenience.

There's only a single rear camera on this model, however. The camera offers a 12-megapixel sensor with 1.25µm pixels, while there's an 8-megapixel front camera, promising to give you great selfies. We'd expect both cameras to offer a full range of Huawei's camera functions.

Making its debut in a Lite model is Knuckle Sense, the system that will let you tap and draw with a knuckle on the display.

The phone will run on Android with Huawei's EMUI 5.1 system lathered over the top. 

Perhaps the most promising thing about the P10 Lite is the price. At £299, the P10 Lite is affordable and offers respectable spec for the cash. It will be available from 17 March at Carphone Warehouse, EE and Vodafone. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running. RootMetrics tested the four UK networks and EE was faster and more reliable than all of them, with better data performance. Their network has come a long way since they launched in 2012. Back then they had 11 UK cities covered by 4G. Today they cover most of the UK’s land mass, thanks to 19,000 state-of-the-art 4G sites. They’ve got faster, too – from 50Mbps to a maximum speed of 400Mbps. And they’re soon to experience even greater possibilities with the launch of 5G.
