Huawei seems to be very busy recently, only this month they unveiled the Ascend Mate 7 during IFA trade show and the Ascend P7 Sapphire Edition, later they’ve announced the Honor 3C Play and just right now the Chinese company presents another device called Huawei Honor 4 Play. The handset features a 64-bit Snapdragon processor and a 5-inch HD display. The Honor 4 Play is said to be available online from September 23rd at a incredibly low price of $130 without contract. Feel interested in the offer? Let’s take a closer look at the device.
Huawei Honor 4 Play vs. Honor Play 3C
The Huawei Honor 4 Play has been the topic of several leaks and rumors that popped online within last few months, and interestingly, all the leaks have turned out to be pretty accurate. In terms of specs, the smartphone strongly resembles the lately introduced Honor 3C Play. Both devices house the same 5-inch 720p display combined with 1GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash accompanied by a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter for selfies. Additionally, both phones are also powered by a 2,000 mAh removable battery. As it comes to software, the phone is said to run Android.
But there is also some new stuff added to the well-known parameters. The Honor 4 Play’s biggest advantage over the Honor Play 3C is that it has been equipped with support for LTE 4 Cat. connectivity (other connectivity features include Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth) and dual SIM slots with dual-standby mode function. Going deeper into the handsets’ differences, the Huawei 4 Play sports a 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 610 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, in comparison the older model is equipped with the MediaTek one. It should be also mentioned that the Honor 4 Play has only 8GB of built-in storage, which isn’t much even if compared with the Honor 3C Play’s 16GB built-in memory.
When it comes to the smartphone’s design, looking at the Huawei Honor 4 Play’s body, we can clearly see that it’s slim and house a textured faux leather back cover, very similar to those used by Samsung, which makes it look pretty good as for a mid-range device.
The device goes on sale tomorrow. Initially, it will be available exclusively in home market of China at something round $130. Sadly, as for now we know nothing about its international release.
