In the next month, Huawei’s Honor will be expanding its Honor X10 series as well as the Honor 30 series. While the Honor 30 series will get a new entry called Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G, or Honor 30 Lite 5G, the Honor X10 family will receive a new member carrying the Honor X10 Max moniker. As you might expect, the “Max” moniker comes from the massive display the device offers. In 2018, Honor unveiled the Honor 8x Max and it was well-received. However, with the Honor 9X series, the company decided to pull off the switch. Now, the massive handset is coming back.
The Honor X10 Max is scheduled to go official on July 2. We’ve passed through a plethora of leaks during the past few days teasing design and specs here and there. Now, the full specs sheet appeared on China’s Telecom’s website. It reveals memory options, prices, and the design thanks to high-quality renders.
Honor X10 Max specifications
As previously revealed by the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA, the Honor X10 Max flaunts a huge 7.09-inch LCD Display on the front. This is an FHD+ panel. Under the hood, the Honor X10 Max will mark the first device made in partnership between Huawei and MediaTek. It will carry the excellent Dimensity 800 chipset which ensures seamless connectivity to the fifth-generation network. The Octa-Core chipset will be paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM depending on the variant. Storage will also be available in two flavors with either 64GB or 128GB. There are three possible combinations – 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of Storage. The device features a single selfie snapper sitting on a small a waterdrop notch. The main camera department is covered by a triple-camera shooter
The phone carries the KKG-AN00 codename from King Kong. The codename alludes to the smartphone size. According to China Telecom, the price for this handset will start from CNY2,299 ($325). However, the most powerful variant will reach CNY 2,799 (~$395) price tag. Unfortunately, we still have no information regarding the possible launch of the X10 Max outside of China. We’re not very optimistic considering that the Honor 8X Max remained a device exclusive for China.
The lack of Google Play Services represents a huge challenge for Huawei and Honor when it comes to making its devices popular in markets outside of China. The Honor X10 Max will run Android 10-based Magic UI 3.1. While it lacks Google services, it’s backed by Huawei Mobile Services and AppGallery.
The Honor X10 Max will go official in the next Thursday, July 2.
