Chinese tech firm Honor continues to widen its series of budget-centric devices with the release of its latest entry-level, 5G-enabled device in China — the Play 30. It features the Snapdragon 480+ 5G chip, with a big 5,000mAh battery and the inclusion of the microSD slot, that’s up to 512GB.
Honor Play 30 Specifications
The Honor Play 30 offers an enormous 6.5-inch HD+ display in an LCD panel. It comes equipped with a waterdrop notch which houses the 5MP selfie snapper camera, as well as a 13MP sensor on the back. While the back is reminiscent of Apple’s design with the iPhone 13 series, it is worth noting that the other circle is just an LED flash, nothing else.
The phone opts in for the Snapdragon 480+ 5G chipset with either 4GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also has a microSD slot that expands up to 512GB and runs on Android 11-based Magic UI 5.0 out-of-the-box. A big 5,000mAh battery is what keeps the lights on but only charges at 10W. Other noteworthy features are the USB Type-C port and the 3.5mm audio jack.
Pricing & Availability
The Honor Play 30 comes in four colorways – Black, White, Gold, and Blue though the latter seems more of a glowing one. The phone is now listed for pre-orders, however, the pricing and availability details are yet to be revealed.
