Honor Play Player Edition debuts in Malaysia

For fans of PUBG

Published

on

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has launched the gamer-targeted Honor Play Player Edition in Malaysia.

The Player Edition unveiling comes just a month after the launch of the standard edition Honor Play. Design-wise, this phone remains the same with the exception of a more futuristic look on its shell from its circuit board-like lines. The black variant in particular looks a tad more sleek due to its red accents around the camera and the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor

This phone will set you back MYR 1,299, but don’t you worry. You’re not paying an extra MYR 50 just for a different design, because Honor is throwing in a couple of mobile gaming goodies to enhance your gaming experience. An Ipega 9087 smartphone gaming controller will be included with the Player Edition, alongside some PUBG stickers if you’re a fan.

The specs sheet, however, remains the same throughout the device. Like the standard edition, the Honor Play sports a 6.3-inch display on the front in Full HD+ resolution. Under the hood lies a slightly aged but still powerful Kirin 970 processor plus 4GB of RAM. Unfortunately, there is no extra horsepower or a bump in RAM for the Player Edition although it is centered around gaming. The phone carries 64GB of expandable storage.

The Player Edition features GPU Turbo, a feature seen in many of Huawei smartphones that helps optimize gameplay and battery at the same time. Speaking of which, the phone packs a larger than average 3750mAh battery which is charged via USB-C. Cameras still remain an important aspect of every smartphone, with this handset featuring a 16MP + 2MP dual rear camera setup and a 16MP selfie snapper.

The Honor Play Player Edition is now available at Honor’s online store on hihonor.com and Shopee.
