Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s sub-brand Honor previously launched the Honor 7X, 7C, and the 7A. Today, the company announced the launch of its latest smartphone, the Honor Play 7. It is placed in the entry-level segment below all the 7 series smartphones mentioned above. The smartphone comes with the traditional Honor look with 8.3 mm thickness and a curved back, so it fits on the palm perfectly. It has a plastic body that supports eye mode and three-finger support but, unfortunately, misses out on a fingerprint sensor.
As for the specs, the Honor Play 7 features a 5.45-inch FullView display with a resolution of HD+(1440 x 720 pixels) and an 18:9 aspect ratio. A Quad-core MediaTek MT6739 chipset powers it clocked at 1.5 GHz with PowerVR GE8100 GPU coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 256 GB via microSD card.

In the optics department, the Honor Play 7 sports a single 13 MP camera with PDAF, 4X digital zoom, and HDR while offering a 5 MP camera, which comes with MEI Beauty for selfies and video calling. It is backed by a 3,020 mAh battery, which should be enough for a day with moderate use. Connectivity features include a 4G LTE Cat 4, Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS/ GLONASS, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Other features include a dual SIM, three slots (2 nano + microSD), and regular Honor features like double tap wake-up.
The smartphone is priced at 599 Yuan, against Xiaomi Redmi 5A. It is offered in Blue and Gold color variants and will be available in stores from May 22.
