Honor unveiled another ultra-affordable phone called Play 8 today, but don't get mistaken - it is not completely new, it is a rebadged Honor 8S for the Chinese market. Powered by the Helio A22 chipset, it has one camera on the back and a basic tall panel, but comes with a very aggressive CNY599 ($120) price tag.
The display is a 5.71” LCD with somewhat thick bezels and a waterdrop notch on the top. The resolution is HD+ and the exact ratio is 19:9.
The camera on the back has a 13 MP sensor and an f/1.8 lens and brings some neat features like HDR. The front-facing snapper does 5 MP stills and has an f/2.2 lens. Honor uses the latter with the Android face-unlocking tech to compensate for the lack of a fingerprint scanner.
The Honor Play 8 has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which you can expand by up to 512 GB via a microSD card. The phone actually has a triple slot so that won't cost you the dual SIM functionality (complete with Dual 4G).Honor Play 8 comes in Black and Blue
The phone runs EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie and packs in a 3,020 mAh battery. Sadly you get the dated microUSB port and no fast charging support, but that's about what you can expect at this price point.
Honor announced the Play 8 in a collaboration with D.Phone, a Chinese smartphone retailer, but you can also purchase it at Vmall, TMall, JD and Suning, among others.
Better buy Nokia 2.2. My Honor 8X Max never receives any updates except for maybe 1. Software support is not good at all almost non existent.Nokia delivers.
