We are used to Honor Play smartphones being accessible devices with a low price and very humble hardware specifications. But the next Honor Play could break with this tradition. Already in a previous article we commented on the gaming approach that Honor was giving her to the device, and now some photos of its box seem to confirm that we are not before another device of the “Play” series.
For putting us in background, we remind you that the Honor 9 Play was launched in September 2017 with a MediaTek MT6750 processor and a maximum of 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, while the Honor 7 Play released last May, is a fairly basic device with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage attached to a SoC MediaTek 6739 4-core.
Taking into account these data, nothing pointed to the next Honor Play could stand out in something, but it seems that it will be like that.
Well for now it is difficult to know based on the filtered photo, but what is confirmed is that the Honor Play is not going to be a low-end terminal. Proof of this are the 6 GB of RAM that will take inside, next to a storage quite respectable 64 GB capacity.
From this photo it is also deduced that the device would be focused on the Chinese market at first, since reference is made to support for China Mobile and the 4G TD-LTE network.
From the photo we can also find out the name or version of this Honor Play, which will be AL20 and it comes in this case in a color called Magic Black
Without knowing the processor, it is difficult to know if this device fits in the medium / high range or will be a premium device, but the minimum that can be expected with such a RAM configuration and being focused on the games (4D gaming is what is called Honor), the least you can expect is a Snapdragon 660 or even the recently presented Snapdragon 710 present in the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE .
Little more we know about this Honor Play beyond that it will be a smartphone that will make use of the artificial intelligence to improve both the gaming experience of the terminal and to improve its photographic qualities and the quality of the screen.
In any case, we are delighted to see how Honor joins other manufacturers as Chinese, creating a device capable of competing with Xiaomi Black Shark , he Nubia Red Magic and the Razer Phone , especially if its price is lower than these other manufacturers. We will inform you about new information about the Honor Play.
