Honor announces Honor Play PH Pricing, Availability

The most affordable Kirin 970-equipped phone to date

After its launch in China a few months back, Honor finally brought the metal-clad Honor Play to our shores. Marketed as a gaming-centric phone, the Honor Play has an aluminum unibody shell paired with a flagship-grade Kirin 970 processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, and a 6-3-inch Full HD+ display.

The Honor Play comes with GPU Turbo out of the box, guaranteeing an improved gaming performance for PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang as of this writing. Other gaming-centric features include a Game Suite, 4D Smart Shock, and 3D Surround Sound.

While the Honor Play carries the “Crazy Fast” tagline, the same should apply in describing its SRP of Php 15,990. While it is considered a mid-range phone, the Honor Play is indeed crazy as it comes with a flagship-grade Kirin 970 processor inside that aluminum-clad body.

Pre-orders for the Honor Play will start on August 11 at SM City, and will be available on Lazada, Shopee and stores across Luzon and Visayas starting August 13, 2018.
