Honor is gradually gaining weight in a market that abruptly disappeared after the US blockade of Huawei. The now independent company in the hands of a business conglomerate in Shenzhen is starting to pick up the pace of launches and although a presentation is scheduled for August 12, today it launched a new mobile phone on the Marlet. The Honor Play 5T Pro is here.

The model is an update to the previous generation Honor Play 4T Pro and maintains the commitment to 4G as it carries a MediaTek Helio series chip instead of one from the Dimensity series. But the phone is a pretty competent mid-range in every way and is in circulation, at least for now, in China.

A fairly competent 4G midline

The new Honor phone hits the Chinese market with a 6.6-inch diagonal LCD screen and now the standard 60Hz refresh rate that seems increasingly rare. The screen is perforated to house a 16-megapixel front camera for selfies and has a 20: 9 aspect ratio and FullHD + resolution. This means that we will have 2400 x 1080 pixels in front of our eyes.

The processor is the aforementioned MediaTek Helio G80 and relies on a single version of RAM (8 GB) and internal storage (128 GB), without a microSD tray. The phone offers 4G in addition to WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and the USB Type-C connector for charging and file transfer. The battery is 4000mAh and supports fast charging up to 22.5W, although it is not specified if the charger is included.

This Android 11 phone running Magic UI 4.0 has three rear cameras. The main one is 64 megapixels, the super wide angle offers 8 megapixels of resolution and the list ends with 2 megapixels for depth readings. We have an accompanying LED flash. The phone mounts the fingerprint reader on the side.

Honor Play 5T Pro versions and prices

The phone sets foot in China with just one version of RAM and internal storage, although we can get it in two colors: black and silver. The price for the local market is 1,499 yuan, which is about 196 euros at the current exchange rate. As of yet, there is no news that it will become an international model, but we will be vigilant in case it does.

Honor Play 5T Pro with 8 GB / 128 GB: 196 euros to change.
