  • Honor Play goes on sale in India price features specifications

Given that the handset also comes with GPU Turbo technology and AI-based features for optimisations, it is quite possible that the device will fare well in terms of power and will be worthwhile for the users. The phone was launched yesterday, on August 6 and surprisingly it comes with many impressive features and hardware onboard.

The Honor Play features a matte finish on the back. Honor has implemented "4D" haptic feedback as well as to provide smooth graphics rendition while running games. Honor will be rolling out the technology to existing phones like the Honor 10, Honor View10, Honor 9 Lite and Honor 7X, via a software update in the days to come. The company is also touting EMUI 8.2's AI features, which include scene, object, and 3D facial recognition, AI-based Face Unlock, Notification Safety, and more. Honor is also using a special film on the screen of the Honor Play to reduce glare in warm sunny environment.

The Honor Play price in India starts at Rs. 19,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, and goes up to Rs. 23,999 for the 6GB RAM variant. As many of you might be aware, Kirin 970 happens to power all the flagship Huawei and Honor smartphones released this year. The smartphone will be available in two RAM variants; 4/6GB RAM option with 64GB storage.

The smartphone is powered by Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 970 AI chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.36GHz and four Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. The smartphone sports a 6.3-inch IPS LCD panel with 2340 x 1080 px resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

The neural processing unit (NPU) on the Honor Play is said to consume only 2% battery as compared to other CPUs capable of performing similar AI tasks. The phone is further backed by a 3,750mAh battery and supports fast charging. This time it is the Honor Play, yet another mid-range smartphone from the company.

In this budget price point, Honor ships a dual rear camera setup of 16MP+2MP. A single front-facing camera of the smartphone is a 16 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The new device will be sold exclusively on Amazon India's website and will go on sale on Monday. The Honor Play will also be available for buying Honor's own online store.
