Honor Philippines has been teasing the Honor 10 Lite for quite some time — since December 27, actually. Today, it finally revealed when the phone’s official launch in the country is.
(Update: It’s January 25 for Shopee, but the event that Honor will hold itself is on January 22.)
January 25 is the date to mark. We figure the Honor 10 Lite is going to be exclusive to Shopee — at least for the first few weeks, we’re guessing — because representatives of the ecommerce site were the ones who invited us to the upcoming event.
We have no idea how much the device will sell for. But in China, the base model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage is priced at ¥1,399 (around P10,715 or $205). The 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB versions, on the other hand, retail at ¥1,699 (P13,013 or $248) and ¥1,899 (P14,545 or $278), respectively.
If a 3GB variant will be sold in the Philippines, then it will definitely cost less than P10,000 ($191), perfect for those who have a tight budget. P8,990 ($172), probably? Whatever it is, we have no doubt the Kirin 710-powered 10 Lite will be a value-for-money handset. Its souped-up version, the Honor 10, is currently available for only P20,990 ($401), after all. We’ll know more in the coming days.

Besides an online presence, Honor has also set its eyes on offline — something that’s still important if a brand wants to succeed in the Philippines. To date, the company has one concept store, 16 concept kiosks, and 520 multi-brand shops nationwide. You can see the complete list here.
