Unlocking is a breeze thanks to the fast-to-use Face Unlock technology or the rear side fingerprint scanner – just one glance or touch and away you go.

With GPU Turbo, 4GB RAM and the Kirin 970 chipset, you’ll experience a faster and more seamless smartphone experience. Gamers will appreciate the Smart Shock sensation – the phone will vibrate like your console game controller, helping to immerse you in the action.
Thanks to its 16MP front camera and AI-powered lighting effects, the Honor Play will provide you with fantastic pictures that are all set for your social media pages. The dual lensed 16MP and 2MP rear camera will ensure you never miss a magic moment.
What is SIM free?
You'll receive an unlocked device, so there’s no requirement to commit to any network, leaving you free to decide which SIM card / network to use. This gives you the opportunity to find the most suitable plan, whether that’s a SIM only deal, contract or pay-as-you-go, throughout the lifetime of the phone.
Top tip: as this mobile phone is supplied SIM free and unlocked, you have access to SIM only deals – these usually offer far better value for money. (Please search: ‘SIM only deals best price’. Add the price of the smartphone above to the cost of a SIM only deal for 12/24 months – now compare this amount to the same smartphone purchased on a contract for 12/24 months, for eye-opening results.) You also have the option to add a foreign SIM card, so you can use this device overseas for less as well.
Additional information: manufacturers often update their Operating System (OS) software over the course of a device’s lifespan – this means that your product might ship with a more advanced OS than specified.
