Possible Honor X10 Pro with Kirin 985 SoC, 40MP Quad Camera Setup Surfaces on TENAA

A new Honor branded handset - possibly the Honor X10 Pro has appeared on TENAA. Is this launching in China soon?


It’s not been too long since Huawei’s sub-brand Honor launched a new mid-range smartphone called the Honor X10 in China. This phone, which is already on sale in China, is likely to be joined by a more expensive, higher specced sibling in the form of the Honor X10 Pro if we are to believe new reports coming from China. According to the Chinese technology blog CNMO, the new Honor X10 Pro is a premium mid-range device that is reportedly powered by the Kirin 985 chipset. The specs of the device have also made an appearance on TENAA. Looking at the specs, we can’t help but think if this is just another variant of the Honor 30 that was launched in April. That phone, however, bore the model number BMH-AN10 while this device internally goes by the codename BMH-TN20.

According to the TENAA listing report, the Honor X10 Pro is likely to come powered by the 5G enabled  HiSilicon Kirin 985 chipset. This is a flagship-grade SoC that is based on a 7nm manufacturing process and is positioned below the Kirin 990 SoC that powers Huawei and Honor’s flagship-grade devices.

Take a look at the TENAA screenshots below.

From the screenshots above, it is expected that the Honor X10 will feature a 6.53-inch OLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The handset will be offered in 6GB and 8GB RAM options with support for 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. The phone also gets a 3,900 mAH battery, which is a bit on the lower side if you ask us.

The camera setup on the Honor X10 Pro includes a quad-camera setup at the rear where the primary camera uses a 40MP sensor. What is also evident from the TENAA images is the possibility of the phone featuring a periscope lens for the telephoto camera. The camera array also happens to be quite large and signifies that the Honor X10 Pro, prima facie, appears to be an imaging centric device.

The front-facing camera, on the other hand, uses a 32MP sensor. The phone weighs around 185g and has the following dimensions: 160.34×74.18×8.47mm. As of now, no additional information about the device – including a possible launch date is available.
