A few months ago, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched the Honor Play in China. The device was received well in China and now the company has announced its plans to bring the device to India. Last week, a teaser was posted on Amazon revealing the device’s upcoming Indian launch.

The device is scheduled to be launched tomorrow in India. A new tweet posted by Honor India’s official handle states that the device would be available to buy starting tomorrow. Take a look at the tweet posted by the company below.

The Honor Play is yet another smartphone which is gaming-centric. We have seen a bunch of gaming smartphones in the past like the Xiaomi BlackShark, Razer Phone, Asus ROG Phone. All these devices have encouraged game developers to develop games with superior graphics.

The smartphone features a 6.3-inch Full-HD display with a pixel resolution of 1080*2280 pixels and has a 19:9 aspect ratio. The Chinese smartphone maker has included Histen Audio Tech which produces game sounds in 7.1 channel. There will be two variants of the device – one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage and the other with 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage.

The processor used in the device is Kirin 970 which the company also uses for its flagship device Huawei P20 Pro and the recently launched Honor 10. The key attraction of the device is the pricing. It is priced affordably at 2000 Yuan and 2400 Yuan which roughly translates to Rs.20,700 and Rs.25,200 respectively.

There will also be a new GPU turbo feature with the Honor Play which will improve the GPU performance by 60%. This is achieved by restructuring the graphical framework at a lower level than simple software features.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the device packs a dual rear camera setup(16 MP+2 MP). The front camera is a 16 MP shooter. The handset draws juice from a 3,750mAh battery and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI custom skin. The sale will be an Amazon Exclusive and will take place at 4 pm tomorrow.

After the recent launch of Infinix Smart 2 in India, the Infinix Mobility is now gearing up for the launch of another smartphone on August 23 in the country. The brand has already sent out the media invites for the same revealing few details about the launch.

The media invite by Infinix mentions the August 23 launch with “Save the Date” caption and #BeyondTheBest hashtag. Moreover, the Invite showcases the partial design outline of the upcoming smartphone soaring above the tallest building in a night view skyline which indicates that the device will sport a large display. The device seems to have rounded corners and modern 18:9 display with thin bezels on top and bottom.

Although the device seems to have no notch, there are rumours that this phone may turn out to be the new Infinix S3X which was launched in a few days back in certain regions.

Talking about the Infinix S3X, it is the company’s first phone to debut with a notched display. The fact that Infinix marketed the S3X with the #Anotchhigher hashtag and an image similar to the one seen in the media invite gives rise to the above speculation of it coming to India on 23rd of August.

However, there is a higher possibility of the device to be a completely different Infinix phone with minimal bezels and large display. As of now, we dont have any information regarding the same. We will keep you updated with future updates. Till then, Stay tuned.

From a report by Counterpoint, OnePlus 6 is the top leading smartphone in India in the premium smartphone market. The company has taken over Samsung for the first time in a full quarter in Q2 2018 in India with 40 percent market share. In the budget segment, Samsung is also facing a lot of stiff competition from other Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, OPPO and Huawei Honor.

Samsung launched the Galaxy A8+ earlier this year to compete against the OnePlus 5T. Despite featuring an Infinity display and powered by Exynos 7882, it failed to stand it’s ground against the OnePlus flagship with a similar price tag of Rs 33,000.

Now a new report from IANS reveals that Samsung is planning to launch a new Galaxy A series smartphone in the country. It will be placed in the premium segment with a price tag of around Rs 30,000 or above. Xiaomi has recently teased it’s POCO brand in India whose first smartphone Pocophone F1 has been getting a lot of attention. Samsung wouldn’t want Xiaomi to make a strong dominance in this segment also.

From the report, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 6.3 inch Full HD+ AMOLED Infinity Display with sleek bezels on side. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage with further expandable options via a microSD card. From these descriptions, we can assume that the phone that is going to be launched is the Samsung Galaxy A9 Star which was launched earlier in China.

It will sport a dual camera setup of 24MP + 16MP in the rear with Samsung Live Focus feature while the front will offer a 24MP camera for selfies and video calling. The yet-to-be announced smartphone will be going  against the likes of OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z, Huawei Nova 3 and the Xiaomi Pocophone F1.
