Honor’s George Zhao announced Honor X10 launch to take place on May 20. It will be the first phone in the series to support 5G connectivity. Apart from the launch date, the brand is yet to reveal any of the handset’s features. But a recent picture posted by Mr Zhao does tease a lot about this phone as well as new MagicBook 14.
Honor X10 Features Hinted by George Zhao
Looking at the picture shared by Mr Zhao, we can speculate a lot of things about the Honor X10. First and the foremost, the picture could have been shot on the phone itself as the post is indeed shared from Honor X10 according to Weibo.
Further, the caption of the post reads the team that worked on Honor X10 has sent Mr Zhao ‘two gifts with deep meaning’. We are not sure what are those two presents but we clearly recognize certain hints in the image.
We can notice four flowers arranged in Red, Yellow, Yellow, and Blue colors. This somewhat confirms a previous leak which suggested the handset to feature Sony IMX600Y RYYB sensor. Then, there’s a bottle cap, which could only mean one thing, the return of the pop-up camera from the previous generation.
Also, the picture includes a book with a fingerprint-like pattern and a square cut-out in the middle suggesting an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Adding more flair to it, an Honor 30 Pro also sits on the desk with AOD displaying 10 ’Oclock. Is the executive teasing OLED display for Honor X10?

According to TENAA, the phone is expected to sport 6.63-inch FHD+ LCD panel and hence the chances of having the above-mentioned features are low. But Huawei has been already working on LCD in-display fingerprint sensor for a while now. Also, AOD on LCD has been possible for years and the best example is ‘Moto Display’ and the stock ‘Ambient Display’ feature on Android Lollipop.
Honor MagicBook 14 with 10th Gen Intel Processors
Then, the picture also showcases an AMD-powered MagicBook 14 placed on the desk as well as a laptop box with Intel logo at the door. For the unware, Honor recently updated the 15-inch model with 10th Gen Intel processors and hence we think the 14-inch might get a similar treatment.
A leak from a couple of days back also suggested the release of several other products like a router, tablet, and smart TV, in addition to laptop at the Honor Smart Life Product Launch, which has been now confirmed to take place on May 18.
Anyway, we will know more about the new products, especially the Honor X10 when the brand will start posting teasers daily leading up to the day of the launch.
