Huawei P8 Lite 2017 aka Huawei GR3 2017: Specifications

The Huawei P8 Lite 2017 Edition is a 5.2-inch display mid-range smartphone powered by the Kirin 655 chip. It is also known as the Huawei GR3 2017, Huawei P8 Lite 2017, Huawei P9 Lite (2017), Huawei Honor 8 Lite, and Huawei Nova Lite in different markets. Huawei’s naming scheme has gotten a bit confusing; hasn’t it?

Is it an upgrade to the original P8 Lite/Huawei GR3? But the P8 Lite 2017 Edition looks good, however you look at it. However, note that as with last year’s model, there is no mention of protective glass on the display.
