Gizchina News of the week
The listing (TENAA) reveals that this device comes with a 2280 x 1080 resolution LCD panel. It uses a pearl screen design with a dimension of 174.462 × 84.91 × 8.3 (mm), weighing 227g. There are two cameras on the rear, a 48MP main camera and a 2MP macro shooter. On the front, this device comes with an 8MP shooter. In addition, this device may come with a MediaTek Dimensity 800 5G chip. We expect to see 6GB/8GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB ROM storage with support for storage expansion. Honor X10 Max also has a 5000 mAh capacity battery, supports 22.5W fast charge, and is pre-installed with Magic UI 3.1 system based on Android 10.
Honor X10 Max speculations
According to the company, the Honor X10 Max will arrive with an RGBW screen. This will deliver a higher brightness, low power consumption, and better overall watching experience. This is a feature that has been used for Huawei’s flagship Mate and P series. The impact of this feature on the display is quite significant. This is another plus for the Honor X10 Max which obviously will arrive without GMS. However, Huawei should be used to releasing non-GMS phones by now. Its smartphone market is struggling in Europe no doubt, however, it is doing perfectly well in China. In fact, the patronage in China is massively increasing and the Chinese have the numbers. Thus, the spread may be poor but the figures are doing just fine. In fact, the Chinese manufacturer recently surpassed Samsung to become the number one smartphone brand in the world.
Back to the Honor X10 Max, there are a lot of speculation regarding this device. According to reports, this smartphone comes with a 7.09-inch screen and the supplier of this display is JDI. This screen supports 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and the highest brightness is 780nit. As we have said earlier, this 7.09-inch screen uses the RGBW technology that Huawei Mate and P series have used. Better screen brightness and power reduction are some of its advantages.
According to recent information, the display uses a waterdrop design and it will have a 2280 x 1080 resolution. Furthermore, this smartphone also comes with dual speakers as well as a side fingerprint sensor.
As for its processor, Honor will have to rely on MediaTek this time. Make no mistake about this, MediaTek’s Dimensity lineup is one of the best 5G chips in the market. It is ahead of Qualcomm’s mid-range 5G chips. This smartphone will use the Dimensity 800 5G SoC. According to the supply chain, the Honor X10 Max may become the world’s first 7-inch 5G mobile phone.
Dimensity 800 is so good in the mid-range segment and I think with powerful smartphones, it will bring down the cost of 5G.
