This post is brought to you honor.

Who says you’ll need to spend a lot of money just to up your mobile gaming experience? With the introduction of the honor Play, now everyone can enjoy the best gaming experience with crazy features at an unbeatable price point.

While there are other phones that claim to be the best for gaming, here are 5 unique standout features that puts the honor Play above the rest.

Larger 6.3” Full HD screen

Go big or go home! For the best visual experience, the honor Play comes with a huge 6.3” Full View display that does a Full HD+ resolution. This gives you a larger view of everything but without sacrificing on form factor. Thanks to its 19.5:9 display aspect ratio and skinny bezels, the honor Play has a screen to body ratio of 89% and it feels like a typical 5.5” smartphone in your hand.

Game on with GPU Turbo and Game Suite

The honor Play is a flagship class device utilising a high-end Kirin 970 processor that has its own Neural Processing Unit (NPU). To squeeze every ounce of power for gaming, the honor Play gets an added boost with GPU Turbo. This is a hardware and software optimised feature that increases its GPU performance by 60% while improving power efficiency by 30%.

If you’re a huge PUBG Mobile fan, this means you can enjoy smoother gameplay with less jittering and you can expect lower power consumption by about 25%. The honor play already has a large 3,750mAh battery and GPU Turbo allows you play even longer. GPU Turbo is also supported on Mobile Legends & Asphalt 9.

Smart photography with real time AI recognition

Although this is designed for optimal gaming, the honor Play is no slouch when it comes to photography. Taking advantage of its NPU, the camera has an AI-enabled 16MP + 2MP dual-camera system that can recognise 22 objects across 500 over scenarios in real time. Depending on what you’re shooting, it will automatically adjust the exposure and colour saturation for the perfect image.

Immersive gaming with AI 4D smart shock

Taking your gaming experience to the next level is a one of a kind Smart Shock feature. Not only you can see and hear your enemies, but you can feel every movement and action as the whole smartphone vibrates like an advance gaming console. Using its AI capabilities, it can recognise various scenarios with real time AI image and audio recognition.

Do note that this feature is not enabled by default and you can follow the steps above to enable it for supported games.

Premium unibody metal design

Just because you’re paying less than a typical flagship smartphone, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on build quality. The honor play feels premium to hold with its unibody metal design and it’s available in striking ultra violet and navy blue.

For the ultimate honor play experience, you can buy the special Player Edition that’s going on sale from 7 – 16 September. It comes in a cool-looking black and red colour scheme and it’s priced at RM1,299. On top of that, you also get a PUBG sticker and a gamepad for free while stocks last!
