Honor X10 with Kirin 820 launched, price starts at 1,899 Yuan

Honor X10 launched in China today & it is the latest 5G mid-ranger from the brand featuring Huawei’s Kirin 820 5G chipset. It is supposedly successor to the Honor 9X, but instead of launching it as the “10X”, Honor decided to launch it as “X10”. Anyways, the phone launched at a starting price of 1,899 Yuan, which makes it the cheapest 5G phone from Honor.


The design of Honor X10 is similar to most of the phones launched this year. There is a rectangular camera module on the rear that has triple cameras and the LED flash in it. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the right side, and there is a Full-Screen display on the front since the phone has a pop-up selfie camera.

On the front, there is a 6.63-inch Full-Screen display with Full-HD+ resolution. It is an IPS LCD panel, and that’s the reason the fingerprint scanner is on the right side and not under the screen. The screen refreshes 90 times a second, and there is 180Hz touch-response-rate.

Honor X10 is powered by the Kirin 820 5G chipset and comes with 6/8GB LPDDR4X RAM paired with 64/128GB UFS 2.1 storage. The phone has a 4,000mAh battery & Android 10 runs out of the box with Magic UI 3.1 on top.

Honor X10 has a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 40 Megapixel Sony IMX600y RYYB sensor, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, and a third 2-megapixel depth sensor. There is a 16 Megapixel camera for selfies. Due to the excellent low-light capabilities of the IMX600y sensor, the camera module has the “Super Night Vision” text on it as well.

The company says that there is an ISO value of up to 153600!


Honor X10 comes in three storage options and four colors (names translated) – Speed Black, Light Speed Silver, Burning Power Orange, and Racing Blue. Here is the pricing for the Chinese market –

  • 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM – 1,899 Yuan ($267)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 2,199 Yuan ($309)
  • 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM – 2,399 Yuan ($337)

The phone will go on sale on May 26th in the Chinese market. There is no word from the brand on the launch outside China.
