Along with the Honor Note 8, Huawei has also introduced a new budget smartphone, the Honor 5 Play.
The Honor 5 Play is the successor to the Honor 4 Play which was released in 2014. The smartphone features a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution and is powered by a MediaTek MT6735 quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz. It packs 2GB of RAM and comes with 16GB of built-in storage, which can be further expanded.
The rear of the handset houses an 8MP primary shooter with a dual-LED flash. On the front, there is a 2MP unit for selfies and video calls. When it comes to connectivity, the Honor 5 Play offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G with VoLTE support, and dual-SIM card slots. The smartphone comes with a 2200mAh battery inside, so battery stamina is definitely not going to be impressive.
The Huawei Honor 5 Play will be going on sale in China today for a price tag of 599 Yuan ($90). Three color options are being offered at launch – Gold, White, and Black.
