Honor has announced a new budget smartphone named Honor Play 20 in China. It comes with specifications and features that you would expect from a phone in its price segment. The main focus is on delivering a good camera setup and a long-lasting battery life which are usually a priority for buyers with a tight budget.
The Honor Play 20 sports a 6.51-inch HD+ LCD display with a dew-drop notch. Under the hood, it has a 12nm octa-core Unisoc T610 processor paired with 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB of RAM. Each of these options comes with the same 128GB of onboard storage along with support for microSD cards up to 512GB.
The camera module design looks like a quad-camera setup but in reality, it is only a dual-camera setup. It has a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel depth sensor to help users click better portrait shots. The phone has a 5-megapixel front camera housed within the dew-drop notch.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for charging at 10W. It will run Magic UI 4.0 based on Android 10 out of the box.
