We’ve already seen quite a lot about the upcoming Huawei P10 series of phones. Apparently, images of the flagship P10 and P10 Plus have been all over the web, but the same is not the case for the P10 Lite.
In a previous leak, it was revealed that the Huawei P10 Lite will be, as expected, the entry-level offering from the series. Back then, the leaked specs included a RAM of 3GB and onboard storage of 32GB. The tipster even went ahead to reveal the price for European markets, tagging it 260 euros.
Now, in a new leak that is coming from benchmarking website GeekBench, there is an unnamed Huawei smartphone with model number WAS-LX1A and according to market experts, this should be the Huawei P10 Lite, especially when looking at the specs on offer.
From the listing, it is evident that the alleged Huawei P10 Lite will join the other recently-unveiled Huawei phones in shipping with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. In addition, the rumored HiSilicon Kirin 655 is listed, only but confirming earlier rumors about the phone. The processor is an octa-core and is clocked at a speed of 1.71GHz. However, the slight difference that pops up in this listing when compared to past reports is the amount of RAM, with the latest showing a 4GB RAM, 1GB more than the previous leak.

It is now known when Huawei P10 Lite will be released, but speculations are that the Chinese OEM could announce this phone at the upcoming MWC 2017 show in Barcelona. The same event is also expected to be used to showcase the flagship P10 and P10 Plus, all of which we have already seen their alleged looks via leaked images. If these images are to be believed, the Huawei P10 will come with a flat-screen design while the P10 Plus will take after the Mate 9 in shipping with a dual-edge screen. As for the P10 Lite, it should share the same display specs with the standard P10.
