Two Hisense mobile phones showed up in the month of September 2018. Now, as the month of October runs to an end, we are welcoming another Hisense smartphone. This is the Hisense H12 Lite. This device is viewed as a downgrade to the former Hisense H12.
The reason for releasing this latest ‘Lite’ version by Hisense may be to target lower income earners or youths who do not have much money to spend on a smartphone. But wait, the Hisense H12 is known for its good selfie camera. What will the latest Hisense H12 Lite be known for?
Read on to find the features of Hisense H12 Lite design, display, camera, network, storage, battery life and general performance.
