As some leaks had advanced, Honor has just presented its new proposal for the mid-range of smartphones, the Honor X10. We review the characteristics of a terminal that stands out for its excellent relationship between quality, price and performance.
The Asian firm is committed to a model where the panel takes center stage and the front camera appears only when we need it. Inside, the combination of a Kirin 820 processor with 6/8 Gbytes of RAM and 64/128 Gbytes of storage guarantee a sufficient platform to move Android 10 and any application.
This bet, which will compete in the range of 300 euros, does not renounce two characteristics that are almost always reserved for the high-end: the 5G connectivity and a 90 Hz panel. Let’s review its most important technical specifications:
