At the Huawei event where the brand introduced the P8 and the P8max, the P8 Lite wasn’t really mentioned but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t real. Recently it went up for pre-order in Germany, and now it’s already available for purchase in Hungary.
So it seems that the Huawei P8 Lite was released without an announcement. If you’re in Hungary, Media Markt’s local arm will gladly sell you one for HUF 79,999 (€261 or $297).
Now that the P8 Lite went on sale in one EU country, it will be in other markets very soon as well.
The smartphone sports a 5-inch 720p touchscreen, a 13 MP main camera, a 5 MP selfie snapper, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 2,200 mAh battery. At the helm we find Huawei’s own Kirin 620 chipset boasting a 1.2 GHz octa-core processor.
The P8 Lite runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and it only seems to be available in black.
