The Honor Play 5 could be released soon, as the device’s detailed specifications have been leaked online. The design of the phone has already been revealed in leaked renders. The new Honor Play phone will most likely be a mid-range device with a MediaTek Dimensity processor. It will be a 5G phone that supports 66W fast charging, according to the leak. Digital Chat Station, a reputable tipster, revealed the Honor Play 5 specifications in a Weibo post on Friday.
Huawei recently sold its Honor sub-brand to a group of Chinese companies, as you may recall. As a result, it’s possible that when the Honor Play 5 is released in the global market, it will come with Google’s Android operating system.
Specifications for the Honor Play 5 (leaked)
According to the source, the Honor Play 5 will have a 6.53-inch OLED display with FHD+ resolution support. The selfie camera will be housed in a waterdrop notch on the display. Because you have an OLED panel, the fingerprint sensor is likely to be embedded beneath the display. The MediaTek Dimensity 800U chipset will power the 5G device. Honor Play 5 is expected to be available in 6GB and 8GB RAM configurations, with storage options ranging from 64GB to 128GB. However, the leak does not reveal any information about the phone’s software.
It’s possible that the Honor Play 5 will be able to run Google-centric apps, which were previously unavailable due to a ban prohibiting Huawei from collaborating with US companies.
Moving on, the Honor Play 5 will have a 64-megapixel primary camera on the back, as well as an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor and two 2-megapixel depth and macro sensors. The selfie camera’s specifications have yet to be revealed.
The tipster also claims that the Honor Play 5 will be one of the lightest in the segment, with a thickness of just 7.46mm and a weight of around 179 grammes. The small 3800mAh battery, which may support 66W charging via USB Type C interface, is responsible for the device’s lightness.
The leaked information pretty much confirms Honor Play 5’s existence. However, we can only hope that the device will see the light once the company announces an official launch date.
