This is Honor Play 40C, an entry-level 5G smartphone that is powered by QUALCOMM’s Snapdragon 480+ SoC. The model has almost the same specification and design as the Play 40, except that the rear camera is now a single lens, instead of the double lenses used on the vanilla Play 40.

So you are getting the same 6.56-inches screen, a 5200mAh battery with a 10W charger, and Google’s Android 13 with MagicOS 7.1 out of the box. As mentioned above, the phone now has a single camera on the rear, capped at 13 megapixels, while a 5-megapixel selfie snapper is used on the front.
