The second phone from Honor is the Honor 6 Play which is comparatively cheaper than the V9 Play.

The sub brand of Huawei has launched an entry level device called as the Honor 6 Play which was unveiled along with the Honor V9 Play. The new handset device is priced at CNY 599 (roughly Rs. 5,900). The phone also accepts up to 128GB of SD card storage but the SIM slot is hybrid. The handset sports a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display with a pixel density of 294ppi.

The smartphone runs on an older Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system which is wrapped under EMUI 4.1.

The Honor V9 Play will cost CNY 999 which is around $153 for the 3GB RAM version while the 4GB RAM will be CNY 1,199 ($183).

As far as the new Honor 6 Play's cameras are concerned, it comes with a pretty disappointing 8-megapixel rear/primary camera which has a f/2.2 aperture, besides dual LED flash light. It was accompanied by the even cheaper Honor 6 Play. It is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 octa-core SoC paired with 3GB or 4GB of RAM and Mali T860 GPU. The phone houses a 3020mAh battery. In terms of design, the Honor V9 Play rocks a metal unibody design with rounded edges which feels pretty sturdy. Coming to the connectivity options, it includes 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, GPS and a microUSB port. On the front, there is a 5MP with f/2.4 aperture shooter for selfies. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz MediaTek MT6737T chipset and also has a stellar 3020 mAh battery inside. After the Honor 9 phone got its Robin Blue color variant a few weeks ago, here's the Honor V9 Play as the latest mid-range device. The smartphone is measured at 143.8x72x8.85mm and weighs around 150g. The main highlight of the phone is 5-inch HD display and its price. The phone is available to purchase in the country from today.
