V9 Play comes with 13MP camera at the back with f/2.2 aperture, an 8MP snapper at the front, and runs Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI v5.1 on top of it.
Honor 6 Play feature a slightly smaller 5″ 720p HD display, packs a MediaTek MT 6737T chipset with a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, a 3,020 mAh battery and 8MP camera at the back, 5MP camera sensor at the front. This one runs on Google’s Android Marshmallow flavour.
