Announcement. Honor Play 4 Pro is a top smartphone with few cameras

Honor Play 4 Pro was announced simultaneously with another smartphone called Honor Play 4. Despite the similar names, the devices are very different. So I will not mix them inside one news.

Honor Play 4 Pro is a curious device. Top Iron, 5G. Not cheap, with serious cameras. What is not trivial, the number of cameras in the front is equal to the number of cameras in the back. There are two of them.

The set of front cameras is generally understandable andlogical. The main multi-megapixel (32 MP). Plus wide angle. But at the back ... The main sensor is the Sony IMX600 40 MP. Heaped up. With an RYYB filter, whatever that means. They say that 40% more light can catch than "ordinary" sensors. The second camera is suddenly a telephoto with optical stabilization. Useful thing, you can’t argue. But for some reason there is no wide-angle camera. Which makes the smartphone somewhat less versatile compared to competitors.

Powerful iron. Kirin 990 is the same chipset that Huawei uses in its flagship P40 family, including the top flagship Huawei P40 Pro +. The memory is a little strange. Only one option is claimed. 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. And, apparently, there is no support for memory cards.

The battery is good, 4200 mAh. There is a quick charge of 40 watts. They don’t talk about wireless charging. Apparently, she is not.

The screen is large (6.57 ″) and high resolution (1080 × 2400, 401 ppi). But the matrix is ​​IPS, so the fingerprint scanner is not built into the screen, but into the power button.

Although Honor Play 4 Pro is a purebred Chinese, i.e. It was announced only in China and only for China, however, there is an NFC module here.

¥ 2899 (₽28100, $ 408) at the start of sales.
