After what seems to be an endless slew of leaks and teasers, the much-speculated Honor X10 5G has now gone official. Thanks to those teasers, we already had an almost replete picture of what to expect from the sub-flagship. But with the launch, Honor has also announced the pricing details.

There’s nothing new under the sun in terms of design, which has been leaked and teased extensively. You get a notch-free and punch-hole-free 6.63-inch display that delivers a 90Hz refresh rate and an FHD+ resolution. The front camera is mounted on a motorized pop-up module. A thumbprint reader is also positioned on the side.

Go around the back to find an abstract geometric pattern inscribed on a sleek, chamfered panel that comes in Sapphire Blue, Midnight Black, Titanium Silver, and Fiery Orange colors. In the top left corner of this panel resides an oversized camera bump, featuring a vertically-stacked triple-camera system.

The camera setup features a 40MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 2MP macro lens. Honor has equipped the primary camera with an RYYB sensor, which, combined with the ‘AIS Super Night,’ allows for superior low-light photography. The selfie camera has a 16MP primary sensor behind it.

As previously expected, the Honor X10 5G is, in fact, a mid-range 5G model. Powered by the Kirin 820 processor, the sub-flagship supports dual-mode 5G and up to nine 5G bands. The processor is hooked up to a 4,300 mAh battery that can be powered up with 22.5W fast charging.

The performance can be further boosted with Kirin Gaming + 2.0 and GPU Turbo. You can pick from 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 8GB/128GB configurations. The base edition starts at CNY 1,899 (~43,000 PKR), the mid-tier one at CNY 2,199 (~50,000 PKR), while the highest-end memory variant is retailing for CNY 2,399 (~54,000 PKR).

The company has introduced the Honor X10 5G in China in the first phase, where it’ll be available for sale from May 26. Given it's a 5G-enabled build, it’s unlikely that the Honor X10 5G arrives in Pakistan anytime soon.
