Honor has officially launched its first gaming smartphone, the Honor Play. With its GPU Turbo upgrade and Kirin 970 flagship chipset, the new device is made for gamers. It also supports 1.5-day heavy usage with a 3,750mAh battery, which is great for longer gameplay.

With its artificial intelligence (AI) capability, the Honor Play immerses players in their games through AI real-time image and audio recognition, as well as AI 3D surround sound with its 3D stereo effect. You get to see all the action through the 6.3-inch FullView Display.

The technology is also present in the dual rear 16-megapixel and 2-megapixel cameras, which has AI Motion Detection and Image Stabilization function. Meanwhile, there is the Honor Smart Gallery that organizes and identifies your photos and turns them into a music video with AR gestures, makeup, and backgrounds using pre-installed applications.

There is also Honor Play’s Game Suite, which lets you switch to high-performance mode and block notifications while you’re playing so you have a better gaming experience with less distractions.

You can record your gameplay with the screen record, screen shot, and share function—letting you capture important moments of the game without halting it.

The Honor Play retails for P15,990 and is now available on Lazada, Shopee, and stores nationwide. It comes in black and blue, with a RAM of 4GB and up to 64GB expandable storage via microSD card slot (which supports up to 256GB).
