The Honor X10 series’ first entry, which is now confirmed to launch with 5G, will sport a massive camera module on its rear.
The Honor X10 series may have just been minted to the world through a brief mention, but its first purported entrant is already making rounds online.
Through its certification listings and images on China’s MIIT and TENAA, we now have an excellent outline as to how the vanilla Honor X10 will fare and look by the time it arrives.
A 5G-enabled mid-range phone
According to the listings, the Honor X10 is slated to be powered by HUAWEI’s HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G chipset. This is but an indication that the phone will launch with 5G capabilities. Additionally, the phone will be built around a 6.63-inch IPS LCD display, with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels.
As for its dimensions, the Honor X10 should measure 163.7 x 76.5 x 8.8mm. Also, it will work on a 4,200mAh battery capacity, with support for 22.5W fast wired charging.
In terms of design, the accompanying images on the Honor X10’s MIIT certifications suggest that the phone will arrive with a massive camera module on its rear. The listing reveals that the module will house a quadruple-camera setup. The setup’s configurations remain to be unknown at the time of this writing.
Another takeaway on the Honor X10’s images is the presence of the phone’s fingerprint reader. Though the phone is shown not to be equipped with a mounted fingerprint scanner on its rear, it’s evident that the device will have this feature installed on its side instead.
Recent speculations are also mounting that the Honor X10 will carry support for 120Hz display refresh rate. If this ever pans out, the phone is set to become as one of the pioneers of such a screen feature in the mid-range segment.
The Honor X10’s pricing has also been the subject of speculations as of late. The phone, which is touted as the successor of the Honor 9X, is tipped to be priced under CNY 2,000. Other sources point that the handset could also go lower, around the same CNY 1,000 price point its predecessor launched with at the time of its announcement.
Here’s a tidbit for you. The reason behind the name change of the Honor X10 could have something to do with the Redmi 10X, another rumored device from Honor’s arch-rival in the competition.
With the specs and design now associated with the Honor X10, we think Honor doesn’t need to go down this road for reasons that are already evident
