Of all the phones launched in the Mate 10 series, the Mate 10 Lite is the most affordable — and most familiar.
That’s because the Mate 10 Lite is simply a rebranded Nova 2i, that same smartphone we already unboxed and reviewed. Adding to the confusion is the phone’s other names — Maimang 6 (in China) and Honor 9i (in India) — depending on where it’s sold.
This is yet another case of Huawei’s nonsensical naming scheme, which bestows multiple monikers on the same product. It’s absolutely confusing when comparing smartphones across regions, and doesn’t make Google Searching any easier.
With that, there’s isn’t anything new to talk about. You still get the near-borderless 5.9-inch display, homegrown Kirin 659 processor, 4GB of memory, 64GB of expandable storage, and best of all, the quad-camera setup (two in front and two at the back).
The Mate 10 Lite will retail for EUR 399 in Europe and become available by early November.
