Huawei is experiencing its best moment and its goal to become the second manufacturer ahead of Apple seems increasingly more feasible. But the secret of the success of a company and Huawei does not come only in high end as the Huawei P9 or Huawei Mate 9 teams, the medium ranges are which form the basis and here the P9 Lite Huawei takes centre stage.
Huawei knows that the P9 Lite is one of the models more interest generated its catalog and for this reason, a few months after the date on which we look forward to its renewal, presented the Huawei P9 Lite 2017, a renovation to the Latin American market that is a slight improvement over the current model.
Renovated on the outside…
As I said the changes in the new Huawei P9 Lite 2017 are rather inconspicuous, also in its design. The Chinese company holds a very similar visual language and also materials, with a metal frame that surrounds the terminal and their faces covered in glass, but with some subtle changes.
For example the rear has been simplified and now we do not see the top of different hue, if not band that the entire surface has the same finish on white. Also changed the shape of the lens of the camera and the fingerprint reader, which happen to have a square shape to a completely round.
On the front still Huawei logo at the bottom but there is in the upper changes in the location of the front camera and the ambient light sensor.
What does not change is on the screen, which remains an IPS of 5.2 inches and FullHD resolution. For the cameras, according to MobileGeeks, the rear sensor would go 13-12 megapixel, Although we have no clear this change and it might be a mistake. Front camera has 8 Megapixels, as in the original Huawei P9 Lite.
…and also on the inside
There are also some subtle modifications along with design changes internally. The first is the processor, which goes from the Kirin 650 new Kirin 655, which integrates the newly presented 6 Honor X but that presents no substantial changes in terms of power (the clock speed up 2 to 2.1 GHz).
Where there is changes most notable is in the memory. The new Huawei P9 Lite 2017 will be available in a basic version with 16 GB with 3 GB of RAM and a more advanced version that goes up to 32 GB and 4 GB of RAM.
The software is another point in favor of this edition 2017 thanks to 7.0 Android Nougat, Although it is expected that the original Lite P9 also receives the update soon. Finally, the battery remains unchanged, with 3,000 mAh capacity.

Huawei P9 Lite 2017, price and availability
As it already ahead at the beginning, the renovated Lite P9 is a model designed for the Latin American market, where it is scheduled to come out on sale next month of February at a price yet to be confirmed, but believed it would be between 250 and 300 euros.
But Huawei already opted for a similar strategy with the Huawei P8 Lite Smart, so we do not rule out see this model by European lands.
