Although Honor and Huawei are not allowed to provide Google Play Services, phones continue to roll off the line. Honor is currently preparing for the launch of its X10, a possible successor to the Honor 9X. The official launch is scheduled for May 20.
Ishan Agarwal gave the rumor mill about the Honor X10 on May 14 a big swing. In a tweet, Agarwal posted the specification list of the upcoming X10 online. This has shown that the device gets a 6.63-inch screen, with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a Full HD + resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels). Internally, the midrange phone contains a (new) Kirin 820 chipset, a 4,300 mAh battery with 22.5-watt fast charging and 64 or 128 GB storage memory and 6 GB RAM. The storage memory can be expanded with the ‘NM Card’ from Huawei, with a maximum storage capacity of 256 GB.
Honor will launch the X10 on May 20, the design has already leaked
For the phone’s selfie camera, according to the images by Ishan Agarwal, Honor uses a pop-up module. On the back we find three cameras in a horizontal module, with a 40 MP main camera (f / 1.8), followed by a second 8 MP sensor (f / 2.4) and finally a 2 MP sensor (f / 2.4). The specification list of Honor would also show that the device has an IP5X certificate, which makes the device dust resistant. It is unknown whether this information is correct, given that most manufacturers opt for water resistance; dust resistance is a less popular choice.
With less than three days to go until the official launch, images of the device have been leaked. In the images we see, among other things, the camera module of the Honor X10, where the 40 MP sensor is attached. It looks like the phone uses an RYYB filter for the sensor, which Huawei introduced on its Mate 20 Pro. With the color filter, the phone can also produce detailed images in poor lighting conditions. Of course we also see the colors of the phone, to be precise the X10 would appear in blue, orange, and black.
The Honor X10 can be seen for the first time in real life via Weibo
Honor will launch the X10 in China on May 20. It is as yet unknown whether the device will be launched in the Benelux by that time. Honor could also opt not to introduce this phone in Western markets. Both Honor and Huawei are burdened by the ongoing trade war between China and the United States. On Friday it was announced that TSMC will no longer be able to supply to Huawei, due to new measures against the Chinese manufacturer. Are you looking forward to the Honor X10?
