After launching the Honor 10 earlier this year, the Huawei sub-brand is now reportedly gearing up to launch its ‘Lite’ variant. As per a teaser shared on Weibo (spotted by MyDrivers), the Honor 10 Lite edition will be launched in China on November 21.

On the software front, it will run Android Oreo out-of-the-box. The device is also likely to boast gradient color schemes.
