Honor announced its large screen flagship, the Honor X10 Max in China today. This is the company’s largest smartphone in 2020 featuring a massive 7.09-inch display, ideal for entertainment and gaming. The phone is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 800 chipset, making it the third such Huawei/ Honor device in the past few weeks.
Honor X10 Max 5G Design & Display
The phone follows a similar design scheme as the Honor X10 that was announced back in May. This includes a rectangular camera housing and a slightly curved back. However, instead of a pop-up selfie camera like the Honor X10, the Max features a traditional waterdrop display on the screen. In case you are wondering, the Max retains the 3.5mm headphone jack as well as the side-mounted fingerprint (power button) similar to its smaller sibling.
The Honor X10 Max measures 174.37 x 84.91 x 8.3mm and weighs 227 grams. Clearly it’s not going to be a device for one-handed use. But still, the company has managed to shave off some bezels on the new model. If you recall, the 2018 Honor 8X Max with a 7-inch+ display had a slightly larger form factor: 177.6 x 86.3 x 8.1 mm.
You get a large 7.09-inch IPS LCD display with 1080p resolution. The LCD panel supports 100% DCI-P3 color gamut and HDR10. It’s pretty bright as well with a peak brightness of 780 nits
The Honor X10 Max comes with an RGBW panel instead of the traditional RGB. The additional W – white subpixels will reduce the power consumption of the panel when white is being displayed. Therefore, Honor claims that by using an RBGW panel, the X10 Max will ensure reduced power consumption as compared to traditional LCD panel phones. The panel also filters out harmful Blue light (415-455nm) via software.
The primary camera on the phone is a 48MP shooter that’s paired with an 8MP ultrawide and 2MP depth sensor. Up front, you get an 8MP selfie shooter on the waterdrop notch.
Given the humongous size of the screen, the phone features an appropriately sized battery too. You get a 5000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging, much larger than X10’s 4300mAh capacity.
The Honor X10 Max also features dual 1217 linear stereo speakers with smart PA for amplifying its sound. The phone also supports Huawei Histen 6.1 sound.
