Honor Play Global Variant

Last month Huawei launched its two new affordable smartphones called the Nova 3 and Nova 3i in India. Today, a month later at the IFA trade show in Berlin Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has officially launched the global variant of Honor Play. The smartphone was first launched in India earlier this month priced at Rs. 19,999 and now the device has been launched for the other global markets.

It comes with 6.3-inch FullHD+ FullView displays, with a notch on top and 19.5:9. aspect ratio and driven by Kirin 970 processor. The Nova 3 packs a 3,750mAh battery equipped with fast charging technology and sports a 16MP+24MP dual rear cameras with AI recognition feature.

For heavy gaming, the Honor Play comes with Huawei’s latest GPU Turbo technology, which according to the company claims can boost the gaming performance by up to 60% and provide smooth gaming experience while reducing overall power consumption from the processor by up to 30%.

Price & Availability

The Honor Play comes at a very affordable price of 329€ (around Rs. 27,000) for the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. However, in India, the device was priced at Rs. 19,999 for the 4GB/64 storage variant and Rs 23,999 for the 6GB RAM variant, which I think is quite cheap than the price of the global variant launched today.
