A new report has suggested that Honor, a subsidiary of the Chinese tech giant Huawei, may launch the successor of its popular Honor 9X soon. The Honor 10X will reportedly be announced soon and will feature Huawei’s Kirin 820 5G SoC.
Historically, the Honor X series of smartphones targetted the highly competitive mid range segment in the market. So an Honor 10X is very likely to be in the works and should target the same segment as well. The report regarding its eventual launch arrived from a Weibo post, a Chinese microblogging website. It was shared by the official Weibo account which also revealed one of its key specs.
Unfortunately, the post doesn’t share finer details regarding the smartphone but does share an image and shares a crucial component it will house. While the Honor 9X feature Kirin 810 SoC, the Honor 10X will receive 5G support through the upcoming Kirin 820 processor. For those unaware, the Kirin is a proprietary chipset from Huawei and is manufactured by TSMC.
If it is indeed the successor to the Kirin 810, we can expected decent performance for the similar price range it may arrive in. Although, 5G networking is undoubtedly one of the most important inclusions in the series. If the leak is true, then the Honor 10X will be the first 5G smartphone in the lineup. The 9X was released back in 23rd July 2019, so the Honor 10X should also be expected to arrive around the same time frame.
