Honor is Huawei’s solution for budget-centric markets. Even though the company can’t keep up with the value for money smartphones, Huawei’s reputation has got them a loyal following. The intrusion of Realme into the budget segment has made the job even tough for the brand.
Yesterday (04/09/19), they have launched two devices in China. Although they haven’t uttered anything about the global release, we think those will make their way to the global market. Let’s delve more into the specifications now.
Honor 20s and Honor Play 3 Launched in China
Realme and Redmi made it difficult for Honor to bag the biggest sales numbers. Owing to the decent specifications, people still pick their devices, though. That’s why they have launched two more devices.
When it comes to Honor 20s, it flaunts a 6.26-inch full HD+ display. You can swap in two nano-SIM cards. Underneath the hood, you can find an in-house HiSilicon Kirin 810 chipset coupled with up to 8 GB RAM. Moreover, there is 128 GB onboard storage as well. Running on Android 9.0 (Pie) based Magic UI 2.1.1, the device has 3750 mAh battery.
As for the optics, the product houses a rear triple camera setup with a 48-megapixel primary shooter with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel f/2.4 wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with an f/2.4 lens. The selfie camera measures 32 MP in resolution paired with an f/2.0 lens.
Honor Play 3, on the other hand, comes below the 20s in terms of specifications. It has a 6.39-inch HD+ display. Running on Magic UI 2.1.1 on top of Android 9.0 (Pie), the phone borrows processing power from Kirin 710F SoC. You get up to 6 GB of RAM and 4000 mAh battery. The camera setup is akin what you saw on Honor 20s. However, the selfie camera is an 8 MP shooter.
The pricing for Honor 20s starts from CNY 1,899 (roughly Rs. 19,000) for the 6 GB + 128 GB model. In order to bag 8 GB+ 128 GB variant, you will have to spend CNY 2,199 (roughly Rs. 22,000). The Honor Play 3’s 4 GB+ 64 GB variant bears a price tag of CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,000). Both 6 GB+ 64 GB and 4 GB+ 128 GB has the same cost- CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 13,000).
As you already read, the company hasn’t broken their silence on the global launch yet. Taking their track record into consideration, we are almost sure that the devices will see the international market.
