Honor X10 5G with HiSilicon Kirin 820 SoC, 8GB RAM Passes Through Geekbench Ahead of May 20 Launch

Honor's new budget handset, the Honor X10 has appeared on popular benchmarking platform Geekbench


It’s been a while since we started reporting about the Honor X10, the newest budget handset from Huawei-owned Honor.  If you have been following the Honor X10 saga for a while now, you might be probably aware that this handset was initially christened the Honor 10X. Following the announcement of the Redmi 10X, however, Honor decided to change its name to Honor X10 – probably to differentiate this phone from the Redmi. We also now know that Honor also has a pro version of this phone – called the Honor X10 Pro – in the offing.

The Honor X10 has appeared in several articles over the past few weeks, and we were able to get an idea about the spec sheet of this handset. Today, for the first time, we have come across a reference to the Honor x10 on popular benchmarking platform Geekbench.

As seen in the screenshot below, the Honor X10 – which bears the model number Huawei TEL-AN00 – manages to score 3084 points in the single-core test and 9128 points in the multi-core test. We can also see from the test results that this version of the phone had 8GB of RAM and that the handset runs Android 10.

Honor X10 Geekbench benchmark score

Thanks to previous leaks, we already know that the Honor X10 will feature a large 6 plus inch display with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. The actual display size remains under wraps for now. We also know for a fact that the Honor X10 could get a punch-hole camera at the front.

As for the processor, the Honor X10 comes powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 820 SoC, which features built-in Wi-Fi. The phone is likely to be offered in two variants – a base 6GB+64GB variant and a 6GB+128GB variant. The camera setup on the Honor X10 includes a triple rear camera array consisting of a 40MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 2MP depth sensor. The front-facing camera reportedly features a 16MP Sony IMX471 sensor.

The Honor 1X is likely to feature a 4200mAh battery and will support 22.5watt fast charging support as well. The phone will almost certainly run the latest version of Honor’s Magic UI, which is based on Android 10. While the prices are yet to be confirmed, we did report the possibility of the device costing CNY 1,799 (about Rs 18,500) for the 64GB version and CNY 1,999 (about Rs 20,500) for the 128GB variant.
