Huawei Mate 10 Lite is also known as the Huawei Nova 2i in Malaysia, Huawei Honor 9i in India, and Huawei Maimang in China.

Design and Display

Although more affordable, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite is not a budget device, so it has to be attractive. You are not likely to be disappointed on that front with the stylish, sleek design. It comes in gold, aurora blue and graphite black colours.

As with the regular Mate 10, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite offers you a 5.9-inch display, with slim bezels on its left and right. The touchscreen boasts Full HD+ resolution of 1,080 x 2,160 pixels. It has an aspect ratio of 18:9 that makes for better viewing.


In a way, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite looks to attract people who take lots of photos. This is because it packs two cameras each on its front and back – that is, four sensors in all.

The combo on the rear features a 16MP RGB (colour) sensor and a 2MP monochrome sensor. These enable you produce images with a blurred background effect as an iPhone does. You find a 13MP and 2MP sensor combo on the front for selfies.

Hardware and Software

The Huawei Mate 10 Lite loses the awesome HiSilicon Kirin 970 chipset of its flagship brothers, along with its neural processing unit and artificial intelligence. Instead, you get an octa-core Kirin 659 chip, which is not exactly a slacker. This runs at speeds up to about 2.36 GHz and receives backing from 4GB RAM.

Onboard storage is ample at 64 GB and you will be able to expand this with a microSD card. However, the Huawei Mate 10 Lite boots Android 7.1 Nougat rather than Oreo.

Other Specs and Features

A 3,340mAh battery supplies power – it looks capable of taking you through the day on a charge. There is a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the Huawei Mate 10 Lite for an extra layer of security. You can use one of its dual SIM slots for a second SIM or a microSD card.

We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria, Ghana, or Kenya. When available, Huawei Mate 10 Lite Price in Nigeria is expected to range from 170,000 Naira to 250,000 Naira depending on your location.
