A well-known smartphone, now with the designation of best selling…
Few differences you will see between 6 Honor X and Huawei P8 Lite 2017, and perhaps that is the reason why or by not cannibalize its best-selling smartphone market in our borders, the fact is that here the Chinese manufacturer not dared to name it P9 Lite 2017 as if it will do so in Latin America.
Probably rather the latter, because the truth is that the main rivals of this Huawei P8 Lite 2017 are in your own home, and the Honor are 6 X, Huawei Nova, Huawei P9 Lite or even Honor 8. It is a bad thing that for Huawei? As you hear, it is not, indeed is more than good for Huawei as its signature spin-off Honor, that in a way or another will split sales of smartphones more offset cake.
What is certain is that this new terminal is for us a known smartphone, with a design updated market trends and very similar to the last honor, as well as hardware for mid-range, with subtle differences, we had seen assembled also in other terminals of the brand.
The biggest difference will be his name, and although it may seem strange and confusing, everything has an explanation. The best-selling range of Huawei is the Lite P, and is also the most sought after, so having a new Huawei P8 Lite updated probably is not such a bad idea.
If Samsung was asked some time simplifying their ranges, sure that soon we will have to ask it is also Huawei… And time however, whom to talk about now is the market and users, and as such, you have the word: what you think about the new Huawei P8 Lite 2017?
