Honor has offered the V9 Play in two variants- 3GB RAM model that costs CNY 999 (roughly Rs 9,850) and a 4GB RAM model priced at CNY 1,199 (roughly Rs 11,500). Furthermore, the phone will come in Rose Gold, Gold, Black, and Blue, and Red colour options. An AndroidHeadlines report suggested that the Honor V9 Play may get launched in Europe and the other global markets later on.

On the design front, the V9 Play features a metal unibody with antenna bands on the top and bottom sides and rounded edges. The phone has a dedicated fingerprint scanner on the rear panel below a single camera setup. On the right edge, there are volume and power keys. The front panel has no physical home button.
The Honor V9 Play sports very thin bezels on the left and right edges, while the top and bottom sides have ample bezel space.
