First released in November 2021, the Honor 50 Lite offers plenty of features for users to get excited about, like its expansive display size and quality Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. And despite being one of the most affordable handsets on the market, the Honor 50 Lite is far from a budget option. Come with us as we take a closer look at the Honor 50 Lite’s specs and what makes it so brilliant.
Design & display
The larger-than-average 6.67-inch IPS LCD display makes binge-watching a Netflix series an immersive viewing experience. With the extra screen estate and outstanding visual quality, users can expect sharp, vibrant colours, which makes mobile gaming even more cinematic. What’s more, the Honor 50 Lite is designed with a curved display which contributes to an overall aesthetically pleasing design.
Even though the Honor 50 Lite is designed with larger screen dimensions, the handset is comfortable to use and can easily be operated with one hand, meaning you can call, text, and tweet with ease.
Turn the handset over and you’ll find the 50 Lite’s impressive four rear camera lens system, including a 64 MP lens, 8 MP ultra-wide lens, and a duo of 2 MP macro and depth lenses. This gives you the creative license to capture a range of photographic styles, from breathtaking landscape shots to close-up portraits.
What’s more, the excellent 8 MP ultra-wide lens has a 120-degree field of view. This makes it possible for you to get everyone in shot during those big family photos – leaving no one out of frame.
Be sure to take full advantage of the outstanding 16 MP front-facing camera, enabling you to capture 'Insta-worthy' content wherever you are, whether that’s on a night out with your friends or on holiday with your partner. Plus, great news for any aspiring vloggers: you’re free to record 1080p at 30fps in authentic quality without any lagging, which is ideal for live streaming.
Magic UI 4.2
Another exciting feature that comes pre-downloaded on the Honor 50 Lite is the exceptional Magic UI 4.2 operating system. As well as a clutter-free interface and its ultra-responsive nature, you’re free to explore a whole host of Google Play features, including Voice Access, which is now available to use offline.
Another highlight is the built-in screen recorder, this allows you to record exactly what’s on your device’s screen – so you can conveniently share content with your friends.
There’s even a feature called PrivateSpace, where you can securely store data, files, and documents. As a security measure, you can also create a unique pin, password, pattern, or fingerprint to access this information.
And that’s not all, Google Pay is also available to make purchases that much quicker and easier. Simply hover your smartphone over the card machine, and the payment will be made.
An excellent battery life is crucial; the bigger the battery capacity, the more time you have to enjoy the many features of your smartphone. The Honor 50 Lite’s 4300mAh battery is an impressive size, giving you plenty of time to edit videos or play mobile games, without needing to recharge.
According to the manufacturer, the Honor 50 Lite can reach a battery charge of up to 40% in just 10 minutes, meaning you can quickly plug in, power up, and be on the go listening to your favourite podcast again in no time. On top of that, Honor says the battery will provide you with up to 16 hours of web browsing, or 7 hours of gaming.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 662
The impetus behind the Honor 50 Lite’s lightning-fast and sustained performance is down to the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 chipset. This dynamic processor can handle a range of resource-intensive tasks, from gaming to editing videos.
As well as the impressive graphics and smooth interface, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 takes multi-tasking to the next level, even with the most demanding of apps. Users can expect minimal lagging or buffer slowing you down.
