Honor Play

The market for gaming smartphones has been evolving, and now all the mobile manufacturers are trying to target this segment of the market. Now Honor has launched their affordable gaming smartphone, the Honor Play (yes, it was reported earlier). The company has launched this device today morning in a launch event which was held in China.

Now talking about the most important factor, the pricing of the device. This device has been launched at a price of CNY 2,000 which is equivalent to $310 or Rs.20,700. The reason why we have mentioned this at the first place is because at this price level you cannot expect a Kirin 970 chipset, which is the same chipset the company uses in the recently launched Honor 10 and the Huawei P20 Pro.

The company also boasts a new GPU turbo feature with the Honor Play, which will improve the GPU performance by upto 60% as the company says. This is achieved by restructuring the graphical framework at a lower level than simple software features. This is said to come to company’s other phones in the future on an OTA update.

The all new Honor Play sports a 6.3 inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1080*2280 pixels with 19:9 aspect ratio. Additionally to provide the best sound experience to the gamers, the company has also included Histen Audio Tech which produces game sounds in 7.1 channel. Honor has got two variants to offer, the first one with 4GB/64GB which is priced at 2000 Yuan and the second one with 6GB/64GB of storage which is being offered at 2400 Yuan or 25,200 INR.
