Telstra picks up low-cost Huawei P8 Lite


Huawei-P8-LiteA low-cost Android option for Telstra contract customers.

Telstra has added the Huawei P8 Lite to the range of phones it offers contract customers, with the added hook of a free Huawei Smartband for fitness tracking purposes.

As the Lite name suggests, the Huawei P8 Lite isn’t a premium device, sitting instead in the mid-range of current Android devices. Here’s a quick specifications rundown:

HuaweiP8 Lite
Screen size5in
Display density294ppi
ProcessorHisilicon Kirin 620 CPU Octa-core 1.2GHz
Rear camera13MP
Front camera5MP

In other words, it's not a fancy handset, but for basic use it's a very acceptable Android device.

Telstra’s plans for the Huawei P8 Lite don’t attract any additional handset repayments at any level, and as an added bonus, it’s offering a fitness tracking Huawei Smartband and a single free screen replacement in the first 12 months of the contract, excluding water damage. All up, quite a nice deal.
