A week ago, an anonymous source leaked live images of the upcoming Honor X-series smartphone. However, the images only revealed the back panel of the device, keeping the speculations about its front side. But, it did not manage to hold out for a long time as an online store has published press renders of the smartphone, which will be presented as Honor 10X Lite.

The eight-core chipset only supports 4G networks, and Android 10 will be the software base.

The announcement of the Honor 10X Lite will take place on October 23rd.
Huawei still has no plans to sell Honor
Many are wondering how long Huawei will last under the pressure of US sanctions. Now the company is rushing about and trying to find those solutions that in the current situation will turn out to be the lesser evil for it. And yesterday, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that Huawei may prefer to “go to the bottom” alone and will not pull Honor with it. The only correct decision in this situation is to sell the sub-brand.
The analyst’s words were replicated by the Chinese blog IT.home, which eventually deleted the material soon after. A message appeared on Huawei’s Weibo page that Ming-Chi Kuo’s statement was unfounded, and this time the analyst was wrong in his predictions. I must say that this informant is usually accurate in his predictions, but it seems that this time he missed the point. And, perhaps, the Chinese publication simply misinterpreted the analyst’s words, and therefore hastened to cover up the tracks by deleting the article.
The message about the possible sale of Honor has generated a new wave of controversy and discussion about the future of Huawei. Someone thinks that such a step is correct and the company will do the right thing by choosing the path not to be a “gravedigger” of its own ambitious sub-brand. Others, on the other hand, believe that the sale of Honor is practically a surrender of the company and that it itself does not believe that it will survive. If there is even one chance to survive, they need to stick together.
