Honor has launched a new low-end smartphone for the Chinese market — the Honor Play 7. And since the company is trying to strengthen their presence in the Philippines, there’s a huge change that we might see it arrive here.

As expected, the Honor Play 7 is packed with a set of basic features. The display comes with a screen size of 5.45-inches and has a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. Honor also used a humble MediaTek MT6739 quad-core processor to power it up.

The processor is aided by a decent 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage — which is enough to all your basic apps, plus some pictures and videos that you might take on its cameras.


If those aren’t enough evidence that this is indeed a low-end smartphone, the Honor Play 7 only has a single 13-megapixel primary shooter at the back — no fancy dual cameras that we see in most smartphones today.

On the front, there’s also a less impressive 5-megapixel camera for taking selfies. On the upside, it does have a 3020mAh battery, which is more than enough to last for a day of usage considering that it will only be powering an undemanding quad-core processor and HD+ screen.
