Huawei Mate 9 Lite gets short-lived feature on company’s site

Huawei was ready, but then it wasn’t.

The company, as it is prone to do, was about to launch a Lite version of its Mate 9 phone after giving a couple extra punches in the high end with the Mate 9 Pro and Porsche Design edition.

We even had all the specs and a webpage on Huawei’s site laid out, too. A 5.5-inch full HD screen with Android Marshmallow (and EMUI 4.1), a mid-range octa-core Kirin 655, 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB of storage. A USB-C connector, a 3,340mAh battery and a fingerprint reader top off the main body of work.

The front camera is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor while the rear unit is two sensors. Based on how Huawei has utilized such a setup, we presume that the color unit is 12 megapixels while the monochrome unit is an astounding 2 megapixels.

Will results produced here suffice for a more budget-friendly Mate 9? We aren’t sure if it’s even affordable to say the least: the page has been taken down from the website (rendering all these specs as eye candy) and no pricing has been mentioned.
