Honor has officially announced the Play5 5G in China and is advertising its new device as a “smartphone for all”. The company has kept this handset really thin and light and is a 5G compatible.  Let us find out the specs, features, price, and availability of Honor Play5 5G in Nepal.

Honor Play5 5G Overview

Display and Design

The display here is a 6.53 inches FHD+ OLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. It delivers HDR10 content and also covers DCI-P3 wide color gamut. The refresh rate is stuck at 90Hz which is slightly disappointing. The device does not pack any protection glass on both the front and back. However, the screen is TÜV Rheinland’s low light certified and reduces eye fatigue with its DC Dimming technology.

Around the back, the device has a square-shaped camera module housed in the top left corner. The flashlight is spotted right at the center in the same module. As mentioned earlier the phone is thin-and-light weight- the thickness measures only 7.46mm and weighs around 179 grams. The front side locates a teardrop notch for the selfie camera and the fingerprint sensor is placed beneath the screen. It provides 3 beautiful color options-Titanium empty silver, Magic night black, and Icelandic Fantasyland.

Performance and Memory

Powering the phone is a 7nm Dimensity 800U 5G chipset which is backed up by Mali-G57 MC3 GPU. It has a decent performance while multitasking and gaming. Another compromise on the Honor Play5 5G is that it packs Magic UI 4.0 which is based on Android 10. In terms of memory, the phone comes in a single 8GB RAM variant. You can choose between 128GB and 256GB internal storage options. The in-built storage can be expanded up to 256GB via a MicroSD card. 

Camera

The device flaunts a Quad camera array at the back that includes a 64MP wide camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, and a last 2MP macro camera. The rear camera setup is perfect for taking sophisticated shots and recording stunning videos. For video recording, it supports 4k  video at 30 fps, and 1080p video at 30fps. At the front, the phone sports a 16MP selfie camera for capturing selfies and making video calls. It can also record 1080p video at 30fps video recording.

Battery and Extras

It is a little surprising that the company has decided to power the Honor 5 with only 3800 mAh battery capacity. However, it has provided 66W fast charging for fast blood recovery. As claimed by the company the battery gets 60% charged in just 15 minutes and fully charged in just 35 minutes. Other features include USB Type-C 2.0, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, under-display fingerprint scanner, etc

Honor Play5 5G Price and Availability in Nepal

The expected price of the Honor Play5 5G in India is INR 22,999. Based on that price we expect its price to start at NPR 40,000 for the 8/128GB variant. After its launch in Nepal, you could get this phone in almost all offline mobile stores across Nepal including online stores like Daraz Online Store.
