Honor announces a launch for 2 new, yet oddly familiar-looking, phones

Honor has announced that it will release 2 new phones as a Chinese Singles' Day special, although they will launch on October 28 rather than November 11, 2021. The OEM skirts around the actual names of the new phones, although some leaks assert that they are the X30 Max and X30i. Both devices have very well-worn designs, although their internals might be up to date, at least.

Honor has announced a launch for 2 new phones to celebrate the typically bumper November 11 sales festival in China for 2021. The OEM managed to leave their product names out of this teaser; however, they are rumored to be called the X30i and X30 Max. In the case of the latter, it already gives the convincing impression of being a complete throwback to a phablet of a very similar name.

The Honor X10 Max launched in 2020 as a rare reprisal of the ultra-big-screen trend, with a 7.09-inch FHD+ display and a 5,000mAh battery. The "X30 Max" seems ready to reprise its design, even down to the dual rear cameras. 

Then again, its shooters are touted to upgrade to a 64MP main sensor, while its SoC will also graduate to a newer Dimensity 900 chipset. In addition, Honor has yet to reveal its display, which means it could have something other than the waterdrop notch of the X10.

The X30i, on the other hand, has the stovetop-type camera hump that is looking slightly aged by now. It does allegedly have triple 48+2+2MP rear cameras, at least, as well as a 6.7-inch FHD+ 90Hz LCD screen with a punch-hole selfie camera, thought to be driven by a Dimensity 810 processor found in a flat-edged chassis. Then again, we will have to wait until October 28, 2021 to find out for sure.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
