Honor is gearing up to conquer the gaming smartphone domain with its all-new Honor Play. This device will release on 6th of August and will be available in India exclusively via Amazon. However, it’s not the debut of the phone. Last month Honor Play marked its entry into China. While there are other heavyweights like ASUS, Razer ruling the market with their gaming machines, Honor will definitely give a tough market competition with its budget phone.
The Honor Play will be available in three color variants. It will be Magic Night black, Aurora blue, and Nebula violet. Here, have a glimpse.
As we are talking about gaming, the specs are pretty impressive. The new gaming phone from Honor will pack Kirin 970 chipset along with a 6 GB RAM and an expandable 64GB device storage. It will incorporate the GPU Turbo technology. Along with this, it will flaunt a 6.3-inch LCD display with 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution and a notch. The rear side will house the fingerprint sensor and the dual camera setup.
Users will have a 16 MP primary lens and a 2 MP secondary lens for depth sensing. Of course, there is a 16 MP selfie snapper to complete the setup. Honor Play will get its power from a 3,750 mAh battery. The handset will run Android 8.1 Oreo with official skin EMUI 8.1.
About the pricing, we think, in India, it may cost a little above Rs 20,000 INR/-. In the Chinese market, the price tag of Honor Play is CNY 2,000.
Now, what do you think..? Can Honor play be an able alternative to other existing gaming devices..? If the price tag remains as per our expectations, definitely Honor Play will find its loyal user base in India.
