Along with the HONOR 20S, the company also launched the HONOR Play 3 – An entry-level device with a 48MP lens in the triple rear camera setup and a 4,000mAh battery.
It has a 6.39-inch IPS LCD display with 720×1560 resolution. The display is guarded by an unbranded scratch-resistant aluminosilicate glass. The company claims that the HONOR Play 3 sports a 90% screen-to-body ratio, mostly because the punch-hole size was reduced by 30% to 4.5mm.
Powering the device is a Kirin 710F chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores and four A53 cores partnered with a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. It has a base memory configuration of 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage but also has an option to go 6GB RAM with 64GB of storage or 4GB RAM and 128GB storage, which admittedly is unusual.
It has a 48MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture. It also has an 8MP ultra-wide camera with 120-degree field of view and a depth sensor. It packs an 8MP sensor in the front tucked away in the punch-hole display.
It packs a 4000mAh battery with 10W charging via a microUSB port. While Honor claims it to be water-resistant, it shows an IP5x rating, meaning it is dustproof.
The Honor Play 3 starts at CNY 1000 (PhP7,279.51) for the base 4GB/64GB model, while the 6GB/64GB and 4GB/128GB versions will be available for CNY 1,300 (PhP9,463.36).
