Honor has been pumping devices nonstop to the market as of late, and joining the list is new Honor X10 Max 5G; as the name suggests, it’s the ‘Max’ variant of the X10 5G. The ‘Max’ moniker is not there for namesake only but has its practicality too.
The 7-inch screen, which was once considered to be viable for tablets only, takes its place in the Honor X10 Max 5G. Specifically, it has a huge 7.09-inch IPS LCD screen that outputs a maximum brightness of 780 nits and is HDR10 compliant, making the phone an ideal companion for your Netflix session. Of course, an AMOLED display is something you would want on the phone as big as this, but Honor has made sure that you won’t miss it with the RGBW matrix, which offers improved brightness over normal LCDs.
With big screen comes a need for an even bigger battery, and Honor certainly delivers in this area as well with a 5,000mAh cell that supports 22.5W charging over USB-C port. A bigger battery with a larger footprint comes with its drawbacks — the phone weighs around 232 grams. This phone is so big and chunky that Honor says it can even work as a portable infotainment system for your car. And with added dual speakers on top and bottom, we can’t say otherwise, at least for some people.
The phone powers on MediaTek Dimensity 800 chipset with support for 5G connectivity, has 6GB of 8GB of RAM, and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage. Despite having a larger footprint, Honor manages to cramp only two rear cameras — one is a 48MP main sensor and the other being a 2MP depth sensor.
The Honor X10 Max 5G starts at a price of CNY 1,899 (~NRs. 32,164) for the base 6GB/64GB variant, while the 6GB/128GB variant will cost CNY 2,099 (~NRs. 35,552) and 8GB/128GB is priced at CNY 2,499 (~NRs. 42,327). The phone will go on sale in China starting tomorrow in black, blue, and silver color options. Honor, though, is yet to say anything about its availability outside China, so we are not sure if this will launch in Nepal.
