honor Play - Player Edition

Just a month after its Malaysian debut, honor Play – honor’s first gaming-focused smartphone is getting a special edition. Called honor Play – Player Edition, it’s everything you love about the original except it comes in a limited edition box packed with goodies.

The honor Play – Player Edition retails for MYR1,299, a slight bump from the original when it first launched, at MYR1,249.

The special edition will be available starting 7 September, exclusively from honor’s official Shopee Store (as part of its 9.9 Super Shopee Sale) and honor Malaysia official site.

You’ll find an Ipega 9087 Controller as well as exclusive PUBG stickers in the limited edition box.

The Player Edition has exactly what the standard honor Play offers, except that it features a chipboard-motif back with a unibody metal design.

You’ll get the same expansive 6.3-inch Full View FHD+ display with 19.5:9 screen aspect ratio, powerful Kirin 970 SoC with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

It comes with a 16MP f/2.0 front-facing camera with AI Portait and 3D Portrait Lighting, while on the rear it’s a 16MP f/2.2 + 2MP f/2.4 dual-camera setup with AI-assisted features.

Keeping the device juiced is a large 3,750mAh battery and it runs EMUI 8.2 based on Android 8.1 Oreo.

In terms of gaming features, the honor Play is the first honor device to feature GPU Turbo – a hardware-software integration solution that increases graphics performance.
