Honor Play 4 Pro leaked live image suggests phone will feature LiDAR-like sensor

Highlights
  • The Honor Play 4 Pro can be seen with a dual-camera module at the back
  • The 40MP primary sensor can be seen with ‘AI’ branding on the phone
  • The Honor Play 4 series will be launched on June 3rd

Honor Play 4 and Play 4 Pro will be launching on June 3rd but ahead of the official announcement, the live image of the Pro model has been leaked online. Interestingly, the live image, leaked by a tipster on Weibo, reveals an up-close look of the rear-facing camera setup on the Honor Play 4 Pro. The most interesting aspect of this live image is that the upcoming Honor phone can be seen with what looks like a LiDAR sensor. For those who are unaware of what a LiDAR sensor is, LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging), essentially uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure distances. It takes into account the amount of time the laser to return to calculate the distance between the sensor and the object.

In the leaked live image, you can see the dual-camera setup at the back of the phone sitting alongside the LED flash and the alleged LiDAR sensor. The primary 40MP sensor has been given an ‘AI’ branding that could bring in some scene detection features if not more. As the launch event is not far away, we will not have to wait for long before we get official specifications from the horse’s mouth.

Honor Play 4 leaked specifications

If we talk about the non-pro model, we know a few things we can expect as the alleged Honor Play 4 with the model number TNNH-AN00 has already appeared on TENAA and the listing has revealed key specifications and images of the phone as well. As per the listing, the Honor Play 4 would pack a 6.81-inch full HD+ display. The smartphone would be powered by a 2GHz octa-core processor, which could be the MediaTek Dimensity 800, although the exact chipset name is not mentioned in the listing. The handset is expected to boot Android 10 OS. There is a 4,200mAh battery expected to be included on the phone. The Honor Play 4 is likely to be made available in 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB RAM options with 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage models.
