Just recently, Honor held the Honor X10 new product launch conference. As the name implies, the company uncovered the much-talked Honor X10 smartphone. The 6GB + 64GB costs 1,899 yuan ($267); the 6GB + 128GB is available at 2,199 yuan ($309); and the highest 8GB + 128GB version comes at 2,399 yuan ($337). The pre-sale starts today. But it will go on sale on May 26.
The Honor X10 sports the Kirin 820 processor. This simply means it’s a 5G-enabled smartphone with a SA / NSA dual-mode 5G support. The phone also supports the 9 largest 5G frequency bands in the industry. Using the same modem of Kirin 990, the download speed of the current network is up to 1003Mbps. Based on the super uplink technology, 5G speed has been greatly improved.
Our protagonist adopts AI smart communication as well as 5G surround distributed antenna design to make the 5G signal more stable. When you return to 5G from an unstable signal coverage scenario, it can restore the network within 5 seconds. There is also a dual-card slot design that supports 5G dual-card smart switching. When the main card is online, the secondary card can still make calls.
The Honor X10 features the latest Kirin 820 5G SoC, with a CPU increase of 27%, a GPU increase of 38%, and NPU increase of 73%. Its benchmark score in GeekBench is up to 9755. For the first time, it runs Magic UI 3.1, coupled with core technologies such as a definite delay engine, Kirin Gaming + 2.0, and graphene heat dissipation. So the game performance is improved a lot. Even if playing large games for a long time, it can be smooth. The 4300mAh battery can support online continuous 11 hours of game experience. It supports 22.5W super-fast charge.
Appearance and Screen
The Honor X10 supports a full-speed screen with a 90Hz screen refresh rate. It also supports the 90fps high frame rate of many mainstream games, and the picture smoothness has been greatly improved. In addition, the touch sampling rate of up to 180Hz also makes playing games smoother.
This handset has been upgraded to 21-layer glass technology. It also brings a brand-new time-space diamond shadow design. The four colors of racing blue, speed black, light speed silver, and blaze orange all have different 3D magic patterns.
The Honor X10 uses a 6.63-inch full-screen with a pop-up design. The screen ratio is up to 92%, bringing a more comfortable and immersive look and feel. The thickness of the antenna, battery and sound cavity has not increased. The handset supports the German TüV low blue light eye protection and opens the e-book mode with one click. Concealed and delicate side fingerprint unlocking looks beautiful and is quite practical.
This phone also sports a flagship 40 million RYYB high-sensitivity image three-camera system, of which the RYYB main camera has more than 40% more light input than the traditional RGGB. It has a 1/1.7-inch outsole, which supports four-in-one large pixels. By the way, the flagship Kirin 990 has the same ISP5.0 processing power and photography ability.
The Honor X10 40MP high-sensitivity lens supports the exclusive Owl 2.0 algorithm. In addition to dark light, the night scene mode works like a professional. AIS handheld Super Night Scene 2.0 records the night city exquisitely. There is also a 30-second professional mode long exposure shooting to capture the beauty of the vast galaxy.
