Honor is apparently planning to launch two new variants of its X10 phone that it introduced in May this year. The two new variants are rumored to be the X10 Max and the X10 Pro. Not much is known about the two phones but a rumor is revealing some key details.
According to what has come up on Weibo platform, the X10 Max will launch with MediaTek Dimensity 800 platform. It was first rumored to launch with Dimensity 1000 Plus chipset but reportedly due to the shortage of the new chips, Honor decided to go with the Dimensity 800 chips.
Up until now only iQOO has launched the Dimensity 1000 Plus-powered phone. The new MediaTek 1000+ processor came with some significant upgrades over the Dimensity 1000 processor, including 144Hz display support and 90Hz at QHD+ support.
Another leakster made talked about the screen size of the two phones. According to the tip, the Honor X10 Max will bear the large 7-inch screen whereas the Pro model is going to have a “normal size,” which we believe is being referenced to the size of the X10. So, the X10 Pro is going to have the same 6.63-inch full HD Plus screen. The Max version reportedly also features dual speakers and Dolby panoramic sound for a good sound experience.
There are no other details on the two phones but we expect to hear more about them in the coming days. It is also unknown when the two phones will launch.
