“The Honor 10i shares its specs with the Honor 10 Lite, but comes with triple rear cameras and a better selfie shooter”
Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has unveiled a new smartphone dubbed the Honor 10i. The device comes across as a slight upgrade to the Honor 10 Lite (review) that was launched in India earlier this year. The only notable changes are the cameras. Instead of the dual-camera setup on the back and a 24-megapixel front camera, the Honor 10i comes with triple rear cameras and a higher-res 32-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies and video calling.
