Today, Honor took to China to unveil the much-anticipated Honor Play5 smartphone. The handset is identical to the Dimensity 800U variant of the Huawei Nova 8 SE.

Specifications of the Honor Play5 smartphone

The handset sports a 6.53-inch OLED panel that offers a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The display has a waterdrop notch design that houses a 16-megapixel selfie snapper.

On the rear panel, the Honor Play5 sports a round-edged square camera module. The camera housing comprises a 64-megapixel primary lens, an 8-megapixel ultrawide shooter, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

Out of the box, the handset ships with the Magic UI 4.0 based on Android 10 OS – odd for a 2021 phone.

However, the Dimesity 800U processor would control the activities of the Honor Play5 smartphone.

The phone would offer the user an LPDDR4x RAM alongside a UFS 2.1 storage. It draws power from a 3,800mAh battery that supports 66W rapid charging.

The Honor Play5 comes with an under-display fingerprint scanner for security.

It features the usual connectivity options like 5G, dual SIM, USB-C, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, GPS, Bluetooth 5.1, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Pricing and availability of the Honor Play5

The Honor Play5 smartphone launched in China in two variants – 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage.

The former retails for 2,099 Yuan (~$326), and the latter carries a price tag of 2,299 Yuan (~$358).

The first sale of the smartphone will take place on May 26. And it will arrive in colour options like black, purple, and gradient.
