Honor Play 40 Plus 5G debuts with 6,000 mAh battery
Today is a big day for Honor, as the company introduced the X6 to the British market, and launched a new product in China – the Play 40 Plus 5G. This new phone comes with a Dimensity 700 chipset, 50MP dual cameras and a huge battery.
The Play 40 Plus has a 6.74” LCD with 720p resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. The screen has a small waterdrop notch on top for the 5MP selfie camera. The panel’s technology does not allow fingerprint scanners underneath, meaning the sensor is on the side, over the power key.
The main camera is coupled by a 2MP depth sensor, while the selfie camera has a 5MP sensor. Design-wise, Honor decided to follow the dual circle solution from the number series with overlapping rings but only on the colored versions – the black variant gets a simpler back.
The battery capacity of the Play 40 Plus is 6,000 mAh, which is the biggest ever in an Honor smartphone. Charging goes up to 22.5W, which puts it on par with midrangers from the X series, such as the X7 and X8. The user interface is Magic UI 6.1, based on Android 12.
The phone comes in three memory combinations, two of them with 8GB RAM – storage is either 128GB or 256GB, and there is no microSD card slot. The more basic version has 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
Honor Play 40 Plus comes in four colors – Purple, Silver, Blue and Black. Prices are CNY1,199 ($165) for the 6/128GB version, CNY1,399 ($195) for a 8/128GB unit, and CNY1,599 ($220) for the top 8/256GB model.
