The Honor 9 Lite is already available for purchase in India at just Rs 10,999 for the 3GB/32GB variant and Rs 14,999 for the high-end variant of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
With all the positive reviews the phone is already garnering thanks to the premium-looking 2.5D double-sided glass design and 18:9 display, powerful enough specs, quad-lens camera and the fact that it runs Android Oreo out of the box, many are already asking whether the Honor 9 Lite is also waterproof.
At a glance, it’s easy to mistake the Honor 9 Lite for a premium phone, only until you see the price tag. If anything, only such premium-looking devices are usually associated with IP6X dust and water resistant bodies and it’s okay that Honor fans want to know if IP6X certification is also part of this affordable premium-looking device.
Well, you’ll be disappointed to know that the Honor 9 Lite lacks IP6X certification. Thus, it is not a water-resistant device. This means that if it gets wet, it’ll probably end up damaged.
To be safe, don’t use it around pools of water, kitchen sink, shower, in the rain or even on the beach. But of course, at Rs 10,999, you can always get another one, right?
