The 4T is a recent addition to the Honor Play line of smartphones with an HD+ screen and dual rear cameras. It launched at just 1199 yuan (~US$169) on the Chinese market. However, there is now another, even cheaper, variant of this phone out there.
Deirdre O Donnell,

The Play 4T is a new low-end phone from the Huawei sub-brand Honor. It has a 6.39-inch display with a resolution of 1560x720, a 4000mAh battery that charges at just 10 watts (W) and the aging Kirin 710A processor. It also has 48+2MP rear cameras, which is where high-end dual punch-holes just might get to in the next few years.

Saying that, the 4T has an 8MP in-display selfie camera of its own. It also has 6GB of RAM, which was paired to a single 128GB storage option for 1199 yuan (~US$169) at launch. Now, however, Honor has quietly added a second SKU to this ultra-budget phone.

This one goes down to half this original storage (although the phone does also support up to 512GB of additional external space). It is now priced at 1099 yuan (~$155), and comes in the same Magic Black, Blue Water Emerald or Blue Aurora shades as the original "top-end" Play 4T.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
