Design and launch date of the Honor Play5 smartphone confirmed

A few days back, Honor took to China to announce the Honor MagicBook X 14, MagicBook X 15, and Tab X7 tablet.

The brand seems to have a lot in store for its customers as it officially announced the launch date of the Honor Play5 smartphone today.

The tech giant revealed that it would unveil the handset in China on May 18.

The official poster of the upcoming device shows that the display features a teardrop notch and a tall aspect ratio.

The handset carries the SIM slot on the left side, and the volume controllers and power button reside on the right spine.

The absence of a side or rear-mounted fingerprint scanner suggests that it would feature an under-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock.

The rear panel of the Honor Play5 sports a square camera module that houses a quad-camera system and a centre-positioned LED flash unit.

Interestingly, the design of the rear panel in the poster differs from that present in a leaked render that surfaced a few weeks back.

Last month, Digital Chat Station claimed that the Honor Play5 would come with a 6.53-inch OLED panel that produces a Full HD+ resolution.

The phone weighs 179 grams – which is pretty light – and has a thickness of 7.46mm.

The Dimensity 800U chipset fuels the Honor Play5 smartphone. It will draw power from a 3,800mAh battery that supports 66W fast charging.

It is likely the phone ships with the Android 11 Operating system.

For lenses, the quad-camera system of the smartphone comprises a 64-megapixel primary shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide snapper, and a pair of 2-megapixel shooters – one for macro shots and the other for depth shots.
