Huawei seems willing to stretch a flagship name quite a bit to promote its less premium devices. A Huawei P9 lite mini has appeared in Hungary, apparently a slightly smaller version of the P9 lite.
The details are still incomplete, but the phone will have a 5 720p screen (down from 5.2 1080p) and will run Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 on top. The chipset is unknown but the 3,020mAh battery promises to last two days on a single charge. The microUSB port on the bottom is not terribly exciting to see.

The P9 lite mini will measure 8.05mm thick, which again is a minor downgrade compared to the 7.5mm thick non-mini model. The phone borrows the round fingerprint reader of the P9 lite (2017), but the LED flash flips to the other side of the camera so its not the same model. To be fair, we couldnt expect much from a phone thats both lite and mini.
It will cost HUF 60,000 ($235/200) when it comes out later this month. It will premiere as a dual SIM phone, but a single SIM version will be available in autumn. Launch colors are black, silver and gold.
