After launching Honor Play gaming-centric smartphone in India for the starting price of Rs. 19,999, the company is now planning to launch the phone in Pakistan by the end of this month.

Honor Pakistan has even uploaded a video of Honor Play on its YouTube channel, indicating the intentions of the company to launch the device in Pakistan. However, the exact launch date of the phone is not yet known.

Reports suggest that the phone will be made available in two colors — Midnight Black and Aurora Blue and will carry a price tag of PKR 43,000 (approximately $350), which is way higher than the Indian pricing and slightly higher than the Chinese MSRP at launch.

Being a gaming-centric smartphone, the device comes with a few gaming-related features, including the company’s recently launched GPU Turbo technology that increases graphics processing efficiency to 60% with a 30% reduction in power consumption.

The phone features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display with 2340 x 1080 pixels screen resolution with a notch on top that can be hidden. It is powered by a Kirin 970 octa-core processor — the same one that powers the Huawei Mate 10 flagship smartphone.

It comes in two memory configuration — 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM with 64GB onboard storage. For the photography, there’s a dual rear camera with 16-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor along with AI for object recognition. On the front side, there’s a 16-megapixel selfies snapper.
