Huawei's sub-brand Honor had launched a lighter version of its flagship Honor 10 smartphone — the Honor 10 Lite in November last year. The device is now reportedly going to make its way to the Indian markets in January itself.

The company has also teased a smartphone on Flipkart, which will be unveiled tomorrow, on 8 January. It isn't clear which smartphone it's going to be. Some reports suggest that it is the Honor 10 Lite — but the teased device has a dual camera setup on the front, which is not the case with the Honor 10 Lite.

Honor 10 Lite is expected to launch alongside the View 20 in India on 29 January.

The Honor 10 Lite was announced in three variants. There is a 4 GB RAM variant which is priced at CNY 1,399 (about Rs 14,500), a 6 GB of RAM variant with 64 GB storage option that costs CNY 1,699 (about Rs 17,000) and finally, there is another 6 GB RAM model that comes with 128 GB of internal storage and is priced at CNY 1,899 (about Rs 19,500).

The phone comes in four color options — Gradient Red, Gradient Blue, Magic Night Black and Lily Valley White.
