A Weibo-based leaker has posted an in-the-wild image of a phone allegedly set to launch from the OEM Honor soon. It could be taken to be the pre-existing X20 - were it not for the apparent size of the device from the back. The tipster asserts that its display is 7 inches in diagonal length at least, and, thus, belongs to the rumored X20 Max.

A tipster claims to have grabbed a photo of what is claimed to be the Max variant of the Honor X20. The phone in question does seem to have the camera hump and rear panel style of the affordable 5G handset - however, the leaker asserts that, due to the ostensibly magnified dimensions in play here, it is the larger variant hinted at by the OEM during its recent major product event in China.

This Weibo-based user does not confirm or deny having the "X20 Max" in hand; however, this does not stop them asserting that the putative mobile device could have a display of up to 7.2 inches in diagonal length, as opposed to the 6.67 inches of the 'original'. The Max is also said to have a 6,000mAh battery to keep this extra-large panel on.

The alleged size of this screen could put the prospect of the currently-available X20's 120Hz spec in doubt; on the other hand, its possibly super-sized new sibling just might handle it, thanks to a rumored MediaTek Dimensity 1100 platform. The ultra-large phablet trend seems to have faded away in 2021; however, it is possible that Honor might now feel its time has come again.
