Huawei’s subsidiary Honor has finally launched one of its most anticipated smartphone series, the Honor Play 4. Both Smartphones in the series come with a 7nm Chipset, 5G connectivity, and top-notch cameras at an extremely reasonable price.

Design and Display

Like most Honor and Huawei Smartphones, the Honor Play 4 and 4 Pro take after the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20. They have a similar rectangular camera aisle. Although the paint job puts them apart from the flagship.

The Toned-down Honor Play 4 is built around a massive 6.81-inch LCD with 1080p resolution and a punch hole at the top left corner.



The Honor Play 4 Pro, on the other hand, features a slightly smaller 6.57-inch LCD with 1080p resolution and a dual punch hole on the top left.

Internals and Storage

The Honor Play 4 is powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 800 5G chipset topped with 8GB of RAM and 128GB expandable storage. In contrast, the Pro variant is run by Kirin 990, accompanied by similar memory specifications.

Both smartphones come with Magic UI 3.1 flavored Android 10 out of the box.


The slightly toned-down Honor Play 4 boasts a quad-sensor rear camera setup with a 64 MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, a 2 MP macro camera, and a 2 MP depth sensor.

It also comes with a Laser AF system to help with the autofocus. For selfies, the smartphone features a 32 MP + 8 MP camera system.
