Huawei Honor Play 4X will be the first Kirin 620 smartphone
A few days ago Huawei launched its first in-house 64-bit smartphone processor – the Kirin 620. The chip includes eight ARM Cortex-53 processing cores and Mali-450MP4 graphics and back then we wondered which the first smartphone to use it would be.
The answer has come faster than expected – the first smartphone to use the Kirin 620 will be Huawei’s own Honor Play 4X smartphone, which will be a budget-oriented solution with a price no higher than USD 160. The preliminary specs list includes a 5.5-inch display at 1280 x 720 pixels, 1 or 2 GB of RAM depending on the model, a front 5 MP camera, one rear camera at 13 MP, a 3000 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. The device is expected on December 14 this year.
As to pricing the 1 GB model is estimated to cost USD 130, while the 2 GB version will be USD 30 more expensive at USD 160. There will be a gold version too but we do not know how much this one will cost. The Huawei Honor Play 4X will be available in China at first.
