It’s an Honor 8S with a better processor
Honor launched a new entry-level phone in China with the Honor Play 3e. The phone looks very similar to the Honor 8S that launched in the Philippines last month and has almost the same set of specs as well. The only difference is that the Honor Play 3e uses an octa-core Helio P22 processor, which is an upgrade over the quad-core Helio A22 used on the Honor 8S.
