Recently Huawei announced the new Mate 10 family with three members, among which is the Huawei Mate 10 Lite. The smallest of the house will hit the market in November at a price of 350 euros, which is not bad considering its main characteristics. This device has a 5.9-inch screen with an 18: 9 aspect ratio, an eight-core processor and 4 GB of RAM memory. It also offers a photographic section at the height with two dual cameras, both for the rear and for the front. There is also a fingerprint reader and a 3,340 mAh battery.

Metallic design and large screen
At first glance the Huawei Mate 10 Lite follows the aesthetics of the standard version. Its design is elegant and is made of high-quality metal in various colors (black, blue or gold). It is almost all screen, almost without the presence of frames and with slightly rounded edges. It is not thick or heavy. Its exact measurements are 156.2 x 75.2 x 7.5 mm and its weight is 164 grams. The panel, as we say, is the main protagonist of the terminal. It is 5.9 inches in size (2,160 x 1,080 pixel resolution)with a chassis screen ratio of 83%. The company has used the 18: 9 format, so we expect a good panoramic viewing experience, with richer colors and sharp, clear images. In the back there is space for a fingerprint reader, with which we can make payments or increase security.
Four cameras for the occasion
If there is something to highlight about this model, it is its photographic section. It is the most complete, since it has four cameras. What does this mean? Basically, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a double 16 and 2 megapixel sensor on its back and a dual sensor on the front with a resolution of 13 and 2 megapixels. The latter can be used to achieve the much-acclaimed bokeh effect that some users are looking for today. Therefore, we expect photos and selfies with a fairly good quality, although we will have to wait until we have it in our hands to know how it responds exactly and what the final quality is.
Inside the Huawei Mate 10 Lite there is room for a Kirin 659 processor . It is an eight-core chip (4 running at 2.36 GHz and another 4 at 1.7 GHz), which is accompanied by 4 GB of RAM. We therefore expect a phone that will respond without problems to the most popular applications of the moment, games with heavy graphics or simultaneous processes. As for the internal storage capacity, this model comes with 64 GB of space, with the possibility of expanding it by using microSD cards of up to 128 GB.
As for the rest of the features, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite has a good set of connectivity options: Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, microUSB, headphone jack, WiFi or LTE. It has dual SIM capability and is governed by Android 7.0 alongside the company's EMUI 5.1 customization layer.

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite will begin to be marketed from next November at a price of 350 euros . However, you can now make your reservations from the MediaMarkt website with a Samsung Fit2Pro Band as a gift. As indicated, shipments will begin to be made from November 12.
