For those who thought 64-bit computing is only for the most expensive of phones, Huawei has a solution in the form of the Honor Play 4.
The device just got an unveil in China where is it expected to sell at near-Hongmi prices of about 799 Yuan ($130). The device has a 5-inch 720p display and is powered by the new Snapdragon 410 64-bit chipset from Qualcomm. Being a US$130 phone, it comes with only 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board storage which can be expanded via microSD.

A yet unannounced Samsung phone is in tow with pretty similar specs. However, Huawei being the aggressive maker it is, should have the upper hand when it comes to affordability.
It is amazing to see how much the smartphone world has progressed in a little over a year. The Xiaomi Hongmi when launched at the same price was a ground breaker whereas the world hardly takes much notice of a device like the Honor Play 4 which costs exactly as much, but features quite a bit more.
