So far, we have received almost all the specifications and features of the upcoming Honor X10 smartphone, courtesy of the Chinese TENAA certification authority website it was spotted on. What we did not know so far was its launch date. Well, as it turns out, now we do know the launch date of the Honor X10. The Honor X10 smartphone, the first 5G smartphone in the Honor X series, will officially launch in China on May 20, 2020. Take a look at what we know about the Honor X10 smartphone so far.

It is worth noticing that the post mentions the term “X series”, so we can expect that the Honor X10 Pro smartphone might also launch sometime in the near future. This, however, is just speculation as of now, so we would suggest readers to take it with a slight grain of salt.
As far as the specifications of the device are concerned, the Honor X10 will sport a 6.63-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD panel, which will give a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. The device will measure 163.7 x 76.5 x 8.8mm and weigh in at 203 grams. The Honor X10 will come with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner owing to the IPS display. The device appears to be utilizing a pop-up selfie camera.
Powering the Honor 10X will be an octa-core Kirin 820 5G processor, which will be assisted by 4GB/6GB/8GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB/256GB of onboard storage. As far as OS is concerned, the Honor X10 will ship with the latest Android 10 OS out of the box. Coming to the battery of the device, the Honor X10 will boast a 4,200mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging.
For photography enthusiasts out there, the Honor X10 will sport a triple rear camera setup, which will consist of a 40MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP sensor. At the front, the device will come with a 16MP selfie shooter.
As far as the price of the Honor X10 is concerned, though the company has not revealed the price yet, we can expect the Honor X10 to be priced somewhere around CNY 2,000 in China, given that the Honor X series smartphones are usually oriented towards the cost-effective mid-range segment of Android. That being said, we are not entirely sure as to what the actual price of the device will be.
