As expected, the Huawei P8 Lite has now landed in the United States. The phone isn’t exactly the first of its kind—the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 and the ZenFone 2 fall into the same category—but it’s a notable addition to the available mid-range offerings in the US. It’s a stripped down version of the company’s P8, as you might expect…

The phone sports a Snapdragon 615 processor, a 5-inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280, support for LTE GSM networks, a 2200 mAh battery with up to 11 hours of talk time, and the usual connectivity interfaces like Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi b/g/n. You get 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of on board storage, with the latter expandable by microSD card.

You can grab the phone right now on Huawei’s website, and they’re even offering a nice anniversary bundle deal. For a limited time, you can grab the P8 Lite smartphone, a Bluetooth speaker, a prepaid Net10 wireless card, and a free snap on case for just $250. If you’re in the market for a cheap unlocked smartphone, now might be a good time to grab the P8 Lite.

Here’s the full rundown on the specs:
