Honor's upcoming successor to the 9X will be 5G thanks to its Kirin 820 processor. The brand has been hyping the phone on this basis, pointing out that it supports enough new bands to make it viable for years to come. This device's launch date has also been revealed.

The Honor X10 is a 2020 iteration of a smartphone series formerly known as the nX line. It is powered by the mid-range Kirin 820 SoC. The brand has highlighted that the up-to-date connectivity offered by this chipset is particularly pronounced in its new housing.

This upcoming device will apparently feature a plethora of new bands, comprising N1, N3, N38, N41, N77, N78, N79, N80 and N84. Honor seems to have done this mostly for the purposes of future-proofing in the X10.

The new phone has also reportedly been tested at the Huawei/Honor Xi’an Research Institute 5G Lab, in which it was found to be able to withstand 500,000 hours' worth of use, making more than 250,000 calls.

In other X10 news, a fresh leak purports to show its notchless front panel, showing content that might hint at a higher refresh rate in this upcoming phone. On that note, its maker has revealed its launch date as May 20, 2020.

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.
