The Honor 30 Youth Edition 5G and 10X Max will launch on the same day
Honor has confirmed that it will launch two new 5G phones on the same day in China. They are the Max version of the X10 and the Youth or Lite version of the 30 line. Interestingly, both of them are slated to run on the same new MediaTek processor, although they may be different in terms of looks.
The Honor 30 Youth Edition and X10 Max are indeed believed to have the same Dimensity 800 chipset. However, the former is thought to have a 6.5-inch display - which is almost standard at this stage - and triple rear cameras. The 10X Max, on the other hand, may be intended to be an answer to devices such as the Huawei Mate 20 X or Black Shark 3 Pro with its 7.1-inch FHD+ panel.
It is also slated to launch with mere 48+2MP rear cameras, however. In addition, the 30 Youth Edition may get a 90 hertz (Hz) refresh rate for its smaller display, whereas the 10X Max is rumored to get advanced screen technology called RGBW.
The W here stands for 'white', and means extra pixels of this nature are incorporated into the display matrix. This may result in brightness gains of up to 70% compared to standard panels, while enhancing power efficiency by up to 14% by modulating the use of white-only pixels according to ambient light conditions.
Nevertheless, these potentially very different 5G smartphones may debut on the same (probably virtual) stage. The 10X's upcoming variant may start at the equivalent of US$400 or less, whereas the new Youth Edition may turn out to be in the sub-$300 category. The latter is also slated to be rebranded as the 30 Lite for more global markets following its initial unveiling to its Chinese audience.
