“The Honor Play 8 will feature dual-tone finish on the back and a single rear camera with LED flash”
A Honor smartphone with model numbers JAT-AL00 and JAT-TL00 was listed on TENAA yesterday, revealing modest specifications. Now, images of the smartphone have been added to the database, revealing its design. This smartphone is likely to be the Honor Play 8, successor to the Honor Play 7 that has been launched in China.
This time the listing has revealed the design of the Honor device that seems to sport the latest ‘waterdrop’-style notch display. To recall, the specifications of the Honor Play 8 has already been leaked. It’s worth mentioning that few media reports are speculating the handset could be the Honor 8A – the successor of Honor 7A smartphone.
In the Honor JAT-AL00/ JAT-TL00 TENAA images show the smartphone will have a prominent chin, with Honor branding. While the screen is not lit up, it is possible to make out the smartphone will have thin bezels on the sides. A selfie camera sits in the centre atop the display, but it is not clear what the shape of the notch could be on the handset. The rear panel of the Honor Play 8 seems to have a dual-tone finish. A camera module on the top-left corner and a LED flash below it are visible. There isn’t a fingerprint sensor on the device, as the listing had revealed. The smartphone will come in Gold, Black, Red, and Blue hues, the TENAA listing reveals.
Coming to the specifications, the Honor Play 8 is tipped to sport a 6-inch IPS display with HD+ (720 x 1,560p) resolution. It’s said to be driven by a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, accompanied by 3GB of RAM and 32GB/ 64GB internal storage that can be further boosted up to 512GB using microSD card. A 2,920mAh battery will reportedly fuel the smartphone. On the camera front, Honor Play 8 is expected to boast of a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash on the rear and an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies up front. Moving on, the handset has been reported to come running Android 9 Pie out of the box and feature face unlock.
The only missing puzzle of Honor Play 8 now is its price and availability.
