Alongside the Honor 30 Lite, the Huawei sub-brand has launched Honor X10 Max 5G. The biggest talking point of this smartphone is definitely its display, which is the biggest we have seen in 5G phones. Read long to know more about the new Honor X10 Max 5G, along with its specs, features, expected price, and availability of Nepal.
Honor X10 Max 5G Overview
It’s all about the display!
Honor X10 Max 5G comes with a massive 7.09-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. I can’t remember the last time any device advertised as a smartphone that had diagonal screen length anywhere close to that. And it isn’t just about the size, the LCD panel features RGBW arrangement. Thus, it provides better brightness levels compared to traditional LCD panel while consuming even less power. The display sports a waterdrop style notch on the top that houses the front camera. Honor claims screen to body ratio on this device to be 91.13%.
Honor X10 covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Thanks to its Super-Resolution Algorithm, Honor X10 Max can upscale lower resolution contents to a higher definition. In can also replace your traditional e-book readers as it comes with an E-book mode that makes the display behave as an e-ink display.
No More Kirin Chipset?
It has been reported that the US government has barred TSMC from supplying chips to Huawei and its sub-brand. TSMC was responsible for the manufacturing of Huawei’s Kirin chipsets. As a result, Huawei has turned to MediaTek. The Honor X10 Max 5G features the same Dimesity 800 as the Honor 30 Lite. It’s a 7nm octa-core chipset with an integrated 5G modem. It supports both SA and NSA bands.
Honor X10 Max 5G is available in three different memory configurations. The base variant features 6GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The top model has 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of storage. There is also a variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Users can expand the storage by slotting in Huawei’s proprietary NM card.
Camera and Audio
Honor flaunts a 48MP primary camera with a 1/2-inch image sensor on the back. It supports EIS and 10X digital zoom. There is a 2MP depth sensor accompanying the primary camera. For selfies, there is an 8MP front camera on the front of the device. Super Night mode is available on both of the camera setups.
Honor H10 Max is equipped with a dual speaker setup with support of Huawei’s Histen v6.0 sound. The two speakers are placed symmetrically one on the top and the other on the bottom of the device. With Histen, the device can automatically switch between two sound profile based on the nature of the contents being played.
Battery and Others
Honor H10 Max 5G is equipped with a massive 5,000mAH battery. The company claims that on a full charge, the device can survive 16.4 hours of video streaming or 12 hours of gaming (Honor of Kings). By enabling the in-built battery-saving feature, users can squeeze out 50.2 hours of continuous music playback from the smartphone. The device supports 22.5W Quick Charge via the USB Type-C port.
There is a physical fingerprint sensor on the side for biometrics. It runs on Android 10 with Magic UI 10.3. Like any other recent Huawei and Honor devices, it lacks Google Mobile Services.
