Honor Philippines’ post announcing the huge price cut for the Honor Play
The Honor Play was announced in 2018, and since its release in the Philippines (price at launch was P15,990 or $309), it has established itself in the price-performance stakes. It has been marketed as a gaming-focused, value-for-money device, and true to claims, it can play most graphics-intensive games at medium to high settings without showing any signs of sluggishness.
It is powered by a Kirin 970, the same spec inside the Honor 10 and Huawei P20 series and Nova 3, and it comes with dual cameras on the back. The Honor Play variant sold here packs 4GB RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. Additionally, the handset uses a 3,750mAh battery that supports 18-watt USB-C fast charging.
Other attractions include a 6.3-inch FullHD+ LCD screen with a wide notch; a 16-megapixel, f/2.0 camera for selfies; and EMUI 9 based on Android 9.0 Pie. It will probably get Android 10, too.
