    Honor Play5 5G is a convenient and affordable mid-range smartphone introduced by Honor in mid-May. Now, after about 5 months, we learned that it has decided to expand the Play5 series and another version of this phone is ready to enter the market. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021 (November 4, 1400), the Honor brand unveiled its latest product called Honor Play5 Youth. The new phone has outperformed the Play5 in some respects - including processing and battery life, but some specs - such as display technology and the number of cameras - have fallen short of the previous model. In the following, we will review more details of this new phone. Meet Honor Play5 Youth - the latest Honor smartphone

    Honor Play5 Youth smartphone - also known as Play5 Vitality Edition - is designed in the dimensions of 8.5 74.7 161.8 mm and weighs about 192 grams. This device is available in two colors blue (Aurora Blue) and black (Magic Night Black). What catches the eye on the front of the phone is the tablet-shaped hole at the top left of the screen, which houses a 16-megapixel (f/2.0) selfie camera. However, due to the lack of flash or other camera in this hole, it was better for the manufacturer to choose a normal hole to install the front camera.

    One of the positive points of the design of this phone is the low screen margins, which has increased the screen-to-body ratio to 94.4%. The phone has a 6.67-inch display and, like the Play5, has FHD + resolution (equivalent to 1080 x 2376 pixels). But unlike the OLED panel on the Play5, Honor used the LCD panel (IPS type) in the Play5 Youth. Of course, this CD is not very tight and the update rate is 120 Hz.

    has chosen the Dimensity 900 chip (MediaTek product) for this phone. This 6-nanometer chipset consists of 2 2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 cores and 6 2 GHz Cortex-A55 cores, and its graphics processing is done by Mali-G68 (although a feature called GPU Turbo X can also help the phone's graphics performance while playing Slowly). 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal memory are provided for this product. The device's RAM can be expanded virtually to another 2 GB, but there is no word on upgrading the internal memory. Meet Honor Play5 Youth - the latest Honor smartphone

    On the back of the phone is a relatively large module that has a shape between a square and a circle (called a squircle). Inside this module, there are 4 circles, which are two circles of the camera lens and one circle is an LED flash. The fourth circle is also decorative and is included only for symmetry. The rear camera set consists of a 64-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/1.9 and a 2-megapixel depth-of-field camera (f/2.4).

    The main camera is equipped with autofocus and can achieve up to 10x digital zoom. Features include night mode, time-lapse photography, simultaneous video recording with front and rear cameras, portrait mode, HDR, panorama, professional mode and smile detection technology. This camera is equipped with electronic image stabilization or EIS and can record video in 4K resolution. The maximum resolution of video recording with the front camera is also announced 1080p.

    The Play5 Youth smartphone uses a powerful 4,300 mAh battery. This battery will last up to 20 days in standby mode and up to 30 hours in case of uninterrupted talk on 4G network. The standard 66 watt fast charge is one of the strengths of this battery, thanks to which the battery reserve can be increased from 0 to 50% with just 15 minutes of charging. It also takes about 40 minutes to fully charge the battery. Meet Honor Play5 Youth - the latest Honor smartphone

    Due to the presence of the LED panel, it is not possible to install a fingerprint sensor inside the display, and this sensor is placed on the edge of the phone. The operating system is Android 11 and its proprietary shell - Magic UI 4.2 - has changed its appearance and features to some extent. Play5 Youth is a dual-SIM phone and is equipped with fifth generation communication technology. Bluetooth 5.1, USB-C port, headphone jack and support for BeiDou, GPS and GLONASS routers are the other communication options of this device.
