Huawei has managed to match Samsung in sales in Spain in the last quarter of 2016. Much of the blame for this is thanks to its Lite range, which the brand has renewed year after year. Trimmed versions of the high-end ranges with good features and an affordable price for those who don’t want to spend a lot of money on a phone but don’t want to compromise on quality either.
In the case of Huawei P8 Lite, the phone has had three different models: Huawei P8 Lite, Huawei P8 Lite Smart and Huawei P8 Lite 2017. A model that has continued to be marketed and has had a commercial life of more than a year due to the high demand from users, who have made it a total sales case.

Lastly, the Huawei P10 Lite has a processor Kirin 658 eight-core (4 x 2.1 GHz and 4 x 1.7 GHz), grows its RAM memory up to 4 GB and doubles the storage capacity of the previous model, with 32 GB.

Evolution of the Huawei P Lite
There is a logical and natural evolution between terminals. But none of them revolutionize in terms of the previous model. There are no revolutionary bets between one model and another and the essence is the same: the battery has barely grown and the jump between processor is small. The telephones adapt to the range based on the times in which they are presented. There are changes, yes, of course: more storage, more RAM and an updated operating system.
