Last month Honor introduced two smartphones called Honor Play 4T and Play 5T Pro. These devices came with basic specifications, but they were justified by the really low price they were targeting in China. Now the Huawei sub-brand seems to be geared towards completing the family with a new smartphone called Honor Play 4 Pro. However, this is not a modest device and comes with 40W quick charge and 5G connectivity. Thanks to the listing on JingDong.com (JD.com), we have a deep insight into the technical data and some pictures that show the handset in all its blue glory.
Honor Play 4 Pro specifications  Under the hood, the Honor Play 4 Pro features the Kirin 820 SoC, which offers 5G connectivity with no problem. In addition, this is a fairly powerful chipset that ensures performance comparable to last year's flagships. The chipset fits into a display without a frame with a pill-shaped hole for dual selfie shooters. Interestingly, this is an LCD display. For this reason, the fingerprint scanner is on the side and also serves as a power switch.
In times of multiple cameras, it is unusual for a new smartphone to be delivered with only two cameras. However, this is exactly the case with Honor Play 4 Pro. Maybe it's a cheap 5G smartphone that sacrifices camera features for performance and connectivity reasons? Only time will tell. Despite the lack of a third or fourth sensor, this is not an easy camera setup. At the top of the show is the 40-megapixel IMX600y camera from Sony. This is the same sensor as the recently released X10.
A beautiful design that fits perfectly in the play area.
One of the most interesting features of this phone is on the back. It has an interesting and unique accent on its blue back with the Kirin logo. Huawei and Honor are quite revolutionary, with design aesthetics being the brands that basically debuted the latest trends in color gradients and colorful surfaces. Interestingly, this design pattern has a certain play aesthetic with different layers and shades of blue. While it is still too early to claim that it is a gaming smartphone, we will not be surprised to see an Honor Play launch as a gaming phone.
In the upper part of the smartphone we see the noise-canceling microphone and What seems to be an IR blaster. The USB-C port is located next to a speaker grille and the SIM compartment in the lower part.
Unfortunately there are no details on the battery size. However, the device is said to support a whopping 40 W quick charge. In addition, Android 10-based Magic UI 3.1 should be ready for immediate use. This device may be launched soon and could be Honor's cheapest 5G handset. The Honor X10 is currently the brand's cheapest 5G offering. The price starts at 1,899 CNY.
