If you ever compared the Huawei P7 against the Huawei P8 you would be forgiven if you wondered how the design made such a drastic leap from the glass and metal frame of the P7 to the full metal P8. It turns out that the missing link between the two is the Huawei P8 Lite as it offers a stylish brushed metal full metal frame from the P8 with a front and back similar to the P7. In addition, it is currently being priced for below RM800. Does it manage to bridge the gap in terms of other aspects as well? We find out in our Huawei P8 Lite review below.

As the little brother of the more premium Huawei P8, the Huawei P8 Lite feels much like the missing step between the plastic and metal frame Huawei Ascend P7 and the all metal P8.

While we didn't have the complete set (missing the user manual and warranty card) our unboxing video in this article does give an accurate view of what else you'll find in the Huawei P8 Lite box so do check it out.

Despite not being mentioned alongside the Huawei P8 and Huawei P8 Max, it turns out that the Huawei P8 Lite is still a very real smartphone. According to one seller in Europe, they have a good amount of stock ready for sale going for 79999HUF (RM1061). Tech specs and features include a 1.2GHz octa-core Kirin 620 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, 5-inch display with 720p resolution, 13MP main camera, 5MP front camera and 2200 mAh battery. Unlike the Honor 4C which offers similar specs, the P8 Lite is thinner and comes with a more premium metal frame. Still no exact Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but according to an anonymous source, Huawei could be bringing in the Huawei P8 Lite for Malaysia soon. This could indicate a launch just for the Huawei P8 Lite here in Malaysia as our other sources have said that there will not be a Malaysia launch for the Huawei P8, which is due for a regional launch in Singapore this June 2015.
