Today, Honor took a virtual tour and unveiled two new phones from the Play series: the slightly more powerful Vanilla Play 6T and Play 6T Pro. Both have 5G-enabled Dimension chipsets at attractive prices. But there’s a good chance these devices will still be tied to the home market.
The Honor Play 6T features a 6.7-inch tear-down LCD for a 5MP camera, is powered by the Dimension 700 chipset and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
