The Honor brand has a life of its own and its own release schedule. The next event is on June 6 (Wednesday next week) which will bring us the Honor Play. Not much is known about the phone, except the pervasive AI logo.
Theres talk of a groundbreaking 4D gaming experience based on AI, thought its unclear what that means exactly. The AI will also be in charge of the camera, similar to what we saw on the Honor 10, which in turn means that it could be this device from TENAA known only as LLD-AL30 for now.

It too has a 5.84 screen with 1,080 x 2,280 px resolution and although it is not any thinner or lighter, it has a smaller battery 2,900 mAh. Clearly the phone will be a lower-cost alternative to the Honor 10 (which is on nearly equal footing with the Honor View 10).
Huawei Honor LLD-AL30 – maybe the Honor Play itself
Most telling is the camera the rear dual camera features a 13 MP + 2 MP setup, while the selfie camera has a 16 MP sensor. The memory situation is this: 4 GB of RAM and either 32 GB or 128 GB of storage. Theres no 64 GB model, but there is a microSD slot.
The Honor Play may end up being a different device from this LLD-AL30 model. It really depends on whether the groundbreaking experience is true innovation or just marketing talk.
