Honor unveiled its latest entry-level device: the Honor Play 3.
The smartphone has a 6.39 inch IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1,560px resolution which also arrived with a scratch-resistant aluminosilicate glass. Honor managed to shrink both the bezels to a 90% screen to body ratio, as well as the size of the size of the punch hole by 30% to 4.5mm.
The Honor Play 3 has a 48MP main sensor on the back with an f/1.8 lens and comes accompanied by an 8MP ultra wide camera with a 120-degree field of view while the third module in the setup is a depth sensor. On the front, the selfie camera is an 8MP.
Under the hood we’ll find a Kirin 710F chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores and four A53, as well as a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU.
The base configuration options are quite interesting: while you can have a 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, you can also choose between 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage or 4GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. Of course, you can max out via the microSD card slot.
Other than that, the phone has a 4,000mAh battery with 10W charging that can charge fully in 2 hours and 30 minutes via a microUSB port.
Honor says that the phone, while it only shows to have an IP5x rating (which translates into the fact it’s dustproof), is also water resistant.
The Honor Play 3 arrives in three color variants: Night Black, Aurora Blue and Charm Red and has a price tag of $140 for the 4/64GB model, while the 6/64GB and 4/128GB versions will cost $180. The first unites will be shipped out on September 17th.
