Huawei Honor Play 3 Price, Features and Full Specs

Yesterday, the Huawei subsidiary introduced two new smartphones, one of them being Honor Play 3. During the last few days, there has been a lot of information circulating about this smartphone, leaving many fans extremely excited about its arrival.

However, Honor Play 3 has fallen far short of expectations and is far from qualifying as a 'budget' gaming smartphone.

What we can expect from Honor Play 3

For some time it was believed that it could come equipped with a high-end processor, but it did not happen. Honor Play 3 comes with the Kirin 710F controlling operations that, while quite competent, don't come close to the high performance of the Kirin 900.

For your memories, you will have a choice between 4GB / 6GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB internal memory. Not being the most impressive smartphone, it will surely be able to meet the needs of the vast majority of users.

Unfortunately, its 6.39 "inch LCD screen is unimpressive either, offering only HD + resolution. However, it comes with a punch hole in the upper left corner, which allows you to offer a higher body/screen ratio.

In the photographic segment, you will have a triple rear camera available. This camera consists of a 48MP main sensor, 8MP secondary sensor (ultra wide-angle) and a 2MP third sensor (depth). Dedicated to selfies is an 8-megapixel front camera.

Powered by a 4,000mAh battery with 10W fast charging support, the Huawei Honor Play 3 comes standard with Android Pie. However, contrary to rumors, you will have EMUI 9.1 and not MagicUI. Also, the presence of Turbo GPU technology has been confirmed.

Pricing and Availability

Unfortunately, only specific information from the Chinese market has been revealed, and price inflation is expected when it expands to other markets.

Still, its price in China will be quite interesting:

  • 4GB RAM + 64GB = 138 $
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB = 182 $
