This variant will go on sale exclusively via Amazon.in at a price of Rs. 19,999 from Wednesday, October 3, and will be available alongside the Midnight Black and Navy Blue colour variants on the e-tailer’s website.

The phone is powered by last year’s flagship HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC, paired with 4GB/ 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
In terms of optics, the Honor Play sports a dual rear camera setup with a 16-megapixel primary sensor (f/2.2 aperture) and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor (f/2.4 aperture). The phone gets a single 16-megapixel on the front, with f/2.0 aperture, for selfies and video calling. There is a 3,750mAh battery under the hood.
