honor 10 launching soon

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor is reportedly in the works to launch the successor to the Honor 9X series of smartphones soon. As per the recent report, the company might be launching the Honor 10X device in the near future. Furthermore, the Honor 10X is tipped to be a 5G-enabled device. Take a look at the new report surrounding the Honor 10X smartphone and see what it has in store for us.

Honor 10X Might Launch Soon: Here’s What We Know So Far

The news came courtesy of GizmoChina. The source was able to locate a post made on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo, where the user has talked about the Honor X series’ successor. Notably, the post mentions that the Honor 10X will be a 5G smartphone. Furthermore, the device will be powered by the company’s in-house Kirin 820 5G platform. The RAM and the internal storage of the device are still unknown. That said, given that the Honor 10X is tipped to be a 5G smartphone, we can expect it to come with at least 6GB/8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.

The successor to the company’s highly-appreciated Kirin 810 chipset is likely to deliver decent performance in the mid-range segment. Speaking of, the Honor 10X might be the company’s take to bringing 5G smartphones in the mid-range segment of the Android ecosystem. For the unaware, the Honor X series of smartphones have usually targeted the value-for-money niche.

As far as the launch date is concerned, the Honor 10X could be launched somewhere around July 2020, given that the Honor 9X was launched on July 23, 2019. All this, however, is a bunch of speculations for now, so we would request our readers to take this report with a slight grain of salt till the time the company makes anything official. Nevertheless, we can always expect the Honor 10X to come with upgraded specifications and features when compared with its predecessor. The Honor 9X, for reference, features a pop-up selfie camera, a 6.59-inch IPS LCD Full HD+ display, and a 4,000mAh battery. The device can be charged with up to 10W charging speed and we can speculate that the Honor 10X will come with a faster charging technology. Furthermore, the Honor 9X still runs on the now dated Android 9 Pie OS, which we won’t want the Honor 10X to come shipped with in 2020. So, the Honor 10X will most probably come with Android 10 out of the box. The Honor 9X features a triple rear camera setup, with a 48MP primary sensor. Its successor, the Honor 10X, should likely come with improved cameras and a 64MP primary sensor won’t be too much to ask for. Lastly, we can expect the Honor 10X to sport an under-display fingerprint scanner or, at the very least, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.

As of now, there is not much known about the specifications of the Honor 10X smartphone, but we are sure to receive more intel in the coming days as the launch date nears.
