Honor Play 8 goes Official in China with an Affordable Price Tag

In April this year, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor announced the entry-level Honor 8S smartphone in the Russian market.

Right now, the same device has been launched in the Chinese market but is is being rebranded as the Honor Play 8 instead. In term of its design and specs, it is entirely similar to the current Honor 8S which is available in the global market.

Honor Play 8 Specifications

The Honor Play 8 features a 5.71-inch LCD panel with 720 x 1520 pixels screen resolution and a 19.9:9 tall aspect ratio which boosts a 295 ppi density.

The device is driven by a quad-core Mediatek’s Helio A22 SoC and will be available in a single 2GB+32GB memory configuration. This is unlike the Honor 8S, which has a higher-end model with 3GB RAM and 64GB internal storage space.

Moving on to its camera, the Honor Play 8 arrives with a mediocre 13 megapixels (f/1.8 aperture) main snapper and has a 5 megapixels (f/2.2 aperture) selfie camera located within its waterdrop compartment on the front panel. It’s worth nothing that the front-camera is also coupled with facial recognition technology which enable users to implement face unlocking on the handset.

Software-wise, the device runs on the EMUI 9 based on the Android Pie OS. Under its rear chassis, there is a 3,020mAh power plant to keep its lights on for a decent amount of time.

Honor Play 8 Pricing & Availability

The Honor Play 8 is already available for purchase in the Chinese market and carries a price tag of 599 Yuan (SGD$ 118) for the 2GB+32GB model – slightly cheaper than the Honor 8S with the same memory configuration.
