Announcement. Honor Play 6T Pro is a big, skinny budget phone for the Chinese market

Honor today announced a pair of entry-level smartphones from the Play 6T series in its native China. The first one is called -
Honor Play 6T.
The second is his older brother
Honor Play 6T Pro.The devices are not too similar to each other, it makes no sense to compare them. Therefore, I will make a separate news for each of them. This news is about the older one, about the Honor Play 6T Pro (in Chinese, its name is written like this - 荣耀Play6T Pro). The news about the second smartphone is here.

Honor Play 6T Pro is very similar to the announcedin the fall of 2021, the Honor X30i smartphone will also be released in China. The appearance is, however, different. But the characteristics are close. Only the charging speed is slower. And there is a macro camera, which our 6T Pro villainously lacks.

Honor X30i

Honor Play 6T Pro is a classic inexpensive smartphone with support for 5G networks. Saved a little on cameras and battery, but otherwise everything is fine.

Fast modern MediaTek Dimensity chipset810 made in 6nm process technology. In AnTuTu we are waiting for four hundred thousand points. 8 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of permanent. Support for memory cards is not observed.

6.7″ (109 cm²) IPS screen, 1080×2388 resolution (20:9, 391 ppi), refresh rate slightly increased to 90 Hz.

The battery capacity is not impressive, a modest 4000 mAh. She was obviously sacrificed for the sake of the small thickness of the device - 7.45 mm. But charging is fast - 40 watts.

Cameras. The front has a resolution of 8 MP. Behind is a classic modern budget duet 48 + 2 MP. Main camera and depth sensor.

There is no NFC module. But there is a standard audio output. Side fingerprint scanner. There is no information about the supported 4G / 5G bands.

The price is still known only for the older version, 8+256 GB. And it is quite humane, only ¥1599 (₽20800, $251).
