Peter, 04 September 2019

The Honor Play 3 is the second new phone that the brand unveiled today (the other being the Honor 20S). Itís an entry-level device with a 48MP sensor in its triple camera and 4,000mAh in its battery.

The 48MP sensor sits behind an f/1.8 lens and is joined by an 8MP ultra wide camera with 120į field of view. The third module is a depth sensor. The punch hole selfie camera packs an 8MP sensor.

Itís surrounded by the 6.39Ē IPS LCD with 720 x 1,560px resolution. The screen is guarded by an unbranded scratch-resistant aluminosilicate glass. The official numbers claim 90% screen to body ratio, in part because Honor managed to reduce the size of the punch hole by 30% to 4.5mm.

The Honor Play 3 is powered by the Kirin 710F chipset with four Cortex-A73 cores and four A53, plus a Mali-G51 MP4 GPU. The base configuration has 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage, but the options are strange Ė you can have 6GB of RAM with 64GB storage or 4GB of RAM and 128GB storage. Thereís a microSD card slot, so you can have the best of both worlds, but we still feel that a 6/128GB version would have made more sense.

Anyway, the phone has a 4,000mAh battery with 10W charging, which needs 2 hours 30 minutes to fill the battery completely. Unfortunately, the phone has a microUSB port.

Honor claims the phone is water resistant, though it only shows an IP5x rating (meaning itís dustproof). There are three color options, all of them with an interesting triangular pattern on the back.

The Honor Play 3 starts at CNY 1,000 for the 4/64GB model (thatís $140/Ä125). Both the 6/64GB and 4/128GB versions cost the same Ė CNY 1,300. Pre-orders will start on September 10 and the first units will be shipped starting on September 17.
