7.09-inch display with wider color gamut
This was followed by several leaks giving away the specifications of the device. The device is expected to come with a 7.09-inch FHD+ display with a resolution of 2280×1080 pixels. It is also expected to cover the wider DCI-P3 colour gamut however, we will have to wait till launch to know more about it.
Dimensity 800 for better 5G connectivity
Honor has chosen Mediatek this time probably to avoid the scuffle with the US hindering its timeline of launches. Mediatek’s Dimensity 800 SoC is said to power the device. It’s a powerful SoC built on a 7nm process with support for NSA/SA 5G with dual-carrier aggregation.
This is supposed to make the 5G network improved by 30% for seamless connectivity and continue the legacy of battery connectivity like the Honor X10. Latest leaks have also pointed out that the device will sport a 48MP rear and an 8MP front camera.
A 5000mAh battery with support for 22.5W fast charging is likely to provide the backup. As usual, the X10 Max will run on the latest Magic UI 3.1 based on Android 10.
Apart from this, we expect more leaks about the device and will have to play the waiting game till July 2nd where a Lite version of the Honor 30 is also expected to debut along with the X10 Max.
