Honor 8 Lite flaunts a 12MP rear camera with LED flash, 1.25um pixel size, and 8MP front-facing camera with 77-degree wide-angle lens made for selfies. Unlike, Huawei P9, the Leica branding is missing here, but that doesn’t mean the camera quality is any less. The magic in terms of image quality tends to continue with Honor 8 Lite as well.
