In China, Huawei's sub-brand Honor has just officially launched one of its latest and upcoming smartphone offerings equipped with 5G support, dual rear and font cameras, reverse charging, 40W fast charge, and IR temperature sensor among many others. This one is simply called the Honor Play 4 Pro. 

The Honor Play 4 Pro is packed with 6.57-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display. The screen has pill-shaped cutout for the dual selfie camera. Since this is an LCD display and not an AMOLED, it does not have an in-display fingerprint reader. Instead, the print sensor it mounted on its side. 

In its core, is the Huawei's very own HiSilicon Kirin 990 processor integrated with 5G connectivity support and is paired with Mali-G76 GPU. It comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. Unlike many other releases from other brands, the Honor Play 4 Pro only comes in one RAM+storage configuration. Plus, there is no microSD or NM card support for storage expansion needs. 

Software-wise, this Honor Play 4 Pro smartphone is running on the brand's latest Magic UI 3.1 based on the recent Android 10 mobile OS. And being under the Huawei umbrella, this device does not come with Google Play. However, there is the AppGallery for mobile applications to download from. 

And as for its cameras, as mentioned above, there are two on the back and another two on the front. On the rear are the 40MP main shooter with Sony IMX600 RYYB sensor and then an 8MP secondary camera with telephoto lens and 3x optical zoom feature. On the front are 32MP main selfie shooter and a secondary 8MP camera with ultrawide lens.

There will be another version of this Play 4 Pro where the only difference is that it packs an IR Temperature Sensor. According to Honor, this will enable the device to scan and read temperatures of objects, animals, and even people. As you can imagine, this will be a very helpful feature in these times of global pandemic. This IR or infrared temperature sensor is able to read between -20 degrees Celsius and 100 degrees Celsius.  

Now for its battery, Honor packed this Play 4 Pro with 4200mAh battery. It comes with a 40W fast charger right out of the box and the phone can also double as power bank through its reverse charging feature.
