tight benefits and ridiculous price

Honor has presented today in China the Honor Play 8, a device with quite low characteristics for what we are used to seeing, but with such a competitive price that we expect it to arrive in Spain.

An input range by definition

Honor has contained the specifications in this model and has opted for a Mediatek chip, which is unusual because it is normal to see them using Hisilicon chips, such as Huawei.

It has a A22, the same processor that Xiaomi cheap mobiles use. It has 2 GB of RAM and instead of complying with 16 GB of storage opt for 32 GB, something that seems to us a success, although we can use a microSD of up to 512 GB.

It has a rear camera of 13 Mpx, a front of 5 Mpx and because it does not have a fingerprint sensor. Instead of this system you opt for facial unlocking using the front camera.

The charging connector of its 3020 mAh battery is a microUSB, which clearly positions it as an input terminal.

The screen is small diagonal, 5.7 inches, with a 19: 9 ratio that uses a resolution of 1520 x 720 px. The version of the system you will use is Android 9, with EMUI 9.0 as the interface above the normal Android version.

Price and availability

This model has been announced in China, where it will be put up for sale at a cost of 599 yuan, less than 80 euros to change. It will be available in black and blue.
