Honor has finally launched its new smartphone, Honor Play
, in India, which is the first ever Honor smartphone that introduces the brand new GPU Turbo technology. The GPU Turbo is supposed to make the device up to 60% more efficient in graphics processing for a smoother gaming experience, while also reducing battery consumption by 30%.
Honor Play runs on the 10nm Kirin 970 octa-core processor
, paired with Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, and an NPU that handles AI related functions. Speaking of which, it is also the most affordable phone which uses Kirin 970.
The device has a metal unibody design, measuring 157.91 x 74.27 x 7.48 mm and weighing 176 g. It lets you choose between two colors - Midnight Black and Navy Blue, but there is yet no word about the arrival of the special edition phone that will have a textured back panel.
The smartphone features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS display (2280x1080 pixels) with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. What’s remarkable is the display’s 89% screen-to-body ratio. The device comes with 4GB and 6GB RAM options and supports a UFS 2.1 storage of 64GB, expandable via a MicroSD card.
The Honor Play is a real winner when it comes to the optics department, featuring 16MP + 2MP dual cameras and a 16MP front with an aperture of f/2.0. While the rear camera has faster dual-core autofocus and AI features, both the front and back cameras have 3D studio lighting and portrait mode.
The phone’s system is run by EMUI 8.2, an Android 8.1 Oreo-based software, and supports Dual VoLTE sims, besides having a hybrid SIM card slot. The device’s battery is a non-removable 3,750mAh one and supports fast charging.
It is noteworthy that the device has a fingerprint sensor
placed on the back, along with face recognition ability.
In the Indian market, the 4GB & 6GB RAM devices are priced at Rs 19,999 and Rs 23,999 respectively and will be only sold online via Amazon India
, starting from 4 pm today.
