honor’s gaming-centric smartphone, the honor play, is getting a special edition and it’s going on sale in Malaysia this week. The honor Play – Player Edition is essentially the same phone but it gets additional decals at the back and they have thrown in a couple of goodies for gamers.

The device is officially priced at RM1,299 which is RM50 extra from the standard honor play. For Malaysia, it looks like we’re getting the black edition with a circuit board pattern, and the buttons, camera and fingerprint sensor ring are in red. honor is also bundling an Ipega 9087 Controller plus PUBG stickers in a limited edition box, while stocks last.

The Player Edition shares the same internals as the standard honor play. It has a 6.3″ Full HD+ display and it is running on a Kirin 970 processor with 4GB of RAM. Internally it gets 64GB of storage which can be expanded further via a microSD card.

For imaging, it gets a 16MP + 2MP dual-camera setup at the rear while the front comes with a 16MP selfie shooter. Powering the device is a 3,750mAh battery which charges via USB-C. Like most new Huawei and honor devices, the honor play comes with GPU Turbo that optimises gameplay performance while increasing power efficiency.

OMG! OMG! Is this the phone all Malaysians queuing and dying to buy ?
Nobody likes Xiaomi and Samsung anymore, very overpriced and fast breakdown.
Huawei is the future!.


I’ve tested this compared to the Pocophone, At rm1299, get the Pocophone. The Poco has

a better chipset and better camera. The still images on the Honor Play is just average and the video recording is just plain bad.


    I was comparing and considering those two phone, the Honor Play and Pocophone F1, at the end I take Honor Play, Agreed Pocophone are much better on the specs, but a simple drop test could break a glass and more aggressive drop test resulting a broken lcd panel, so NO THANKS. Thought if you dont have any concerns about those, go get the Pocophone. Anyway I like the slim design of Honor Play and metal back panel.


      Agree !!!


      Tbh, glass is very brittle regardless of it's gorilla glass lvl. In the end of the day, you'll end up putting on a case and a tempered glass for the additional protection. And Poco f1 has a bigger battery hence why it's thicker. Not forgetting the bigger 6gb ram compared to honor play. Overall, you can't deny it that it's a much better deal though.


hahahahaha, china phone promoter #katakforeverattempurung#


Why not 6 ram?

mip!! serious

is it limited?? cause i want to buy it on November


Tell u, from a user of mate 10 pro, the speed in pocophone is really fast, much faster than my phone! At a price so much cheaper, it’s really a no brainier to take poco


    But ppl will be insult you using Xiaomi. The rich ppl use Huawei brand. For people high class one


Honor play or pocophone either 1 cincailah, rm1200 means u only spend [email protected] for a phone with flagship processor. Those SoH*i only spend rm5~6k to buy lousy phone.

Abu Dhabi

When it will be release in UAE? The Honor Play Players Edition?

Is there online order and free shipping in Malaysia to UAE?


GadgetShieldz camo skin is damn good when applied on the Honor Play's back body.
