Honor is yet to announce the upcoming X10 5G smartphone, however, the camera samples have now been made official. Li Pu and Cai-Qing, who are amongst the Chinese survey team to Mt. Everest used the device shooting five different photos at the Advanced Base Camp at 6,500m (21,300ft) height.
The X10 5G carries a custom Sony IMX600y sensor with 40MP raw resolution. Here, we are unknown about the uniqueness of ‘y’. But it uses pixel binning technology, hence producing 10MP resolution images.

The team also used another Honor handset, the Honor 30 Pro+ — which has been in the stores for a week — to click four different images at the location. It carries a Sony IMX700 sensor with 50MP raw resolution and Quad RYYB filter. Owing to the pixel binning technology, it produced 12MP resolution images of the location. However, we miss out on its 8MP periscope sensor capability.

Both Honor X10 5G and Honor 30 Pro+ support 5G connectivity. Therefore, the captured images were also shared over the 5G network at the Advanced Base Camp that was set up towards the end of March by China and Huawei.
About the X10 5G, TENAA reports it to carry a 6.63-inch IPS LCD display, a rear quad camera setup, a Kirin 820 chipset, and a 4,200mAh battery with 22.5W wired fast charge technology. Now, coming from the predecessor, i.e. the Honor 9X costing nearly 130 Euros, the upcoming Honor X10 5G should be priced somewhere in the affordable range.
