For imaging, Honor 10 Lite sports a dual-lens rear camera system, comprised of a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The rear camera setup can shoot FullHD videos at 30fps. There s also a 24-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies and video calls, complete with the usual AI-based features like scene recognition, face beautification, and more.
As far as connectivity features are concerned, the Honor 10 Lite has everything you would expect from a smartphone in 2018. These include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm audio port, microUSB 2.0 port, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The entire package is backed by a 3,400mAh battery, but there s no fast-charging support here.
