The Honor X10 will support 9 new radio bands, which may make it the world's "most powerful" 5G phone
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.
