Enrique, 11 May 2021

As reported by SeekDevice, Honor took to Weibo to officially announce that its upcoming Play 5 5G smartphone will come equipped with 66W charging. This confirms our own reporting from a tipster last month that also offered leaked renders of the Honor Play 5.

Just yesterday, Honor teased the Play 5 on Weibo where it confirmed the device would launch on May 18. Based on the leaks and confirmed teasers we’ve seen so far, it’s expected that Honor may launch more than one Play 5 variant.

The most recent poster features 5G branding while the other does not, so based on the naming structure of the recent poster above, there may be 5G and LTE variants of the Play 5, each with different camera systems and some spec differences between the two.

According to previous rumors, the Honor Play 5 will be powered by the Dimensity 800U and sport a 6.53-inch Full HD+ OLED screen. The quad cameras are rumored to consist of a main 64MP unit, an 8MP ultrawide, and dual 2MP sensors, each for depth sensing and macro shots. We’re also expecting to see an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a battery capacity of 3,800 mAh. As of right now, we’re not sure whether these specs reflect one or more than one Honor Play 5 variant.

They should drop the useless 2mp cameras.
