If you prioritize gaming more than anything else in your smartphone, the Honor Play is for you. The device was built specifically for mobile gaming, with a new GPU Turbo feature that improves graphics processing and efficiency.
“The GPU Turbo is an innovative hardware-software integration solution that leaves Honor’s competitors trailing in the dust,” Honor said today. “As the global strategic partner of PUBG Mobile, Honor Play has dramatically increased the graphics processing and boosted the average frame rate to 39.46 on PUBG Mobile.”
To improve the gaming experience even further, the Honor Play features AI-enabled features, including 4D Smart Shock, which will vibrate the phone to match what’s occurring in a game. For example, it will vibrate to indicate which direction gunfire came from, giving PUBG Mobile players a competitive advantage.
Powering the device is a Huawei Kirin 970 processor, up to 6GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a dual-camera setup with AI features, and a 3,750mAh battery. To heighten the experience even more, the device supports 3D audio effects, which, again, will be great for users playing PUBG Mobile.
The Honor Play also features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, which is nice a big for a device for a phone that’s primarily designed for mobile gaming.
The Honor Play is now available through Honor’s website for €329 in several different countries, including UK, France, Germany, Russia, and India. There’s no word on a U.S. release.
