The Honor X10 5G is powered by the Kirin 820 SoC – the same platform that powers the higher standing Honor 30S. It supports dual-mode 5G (SA/NSA) as well as nine 5G frequency bands for an extensive range of coverage.

The phone comes with a total of four cameras – a 16MP selfie snapper mounted on a pop-up mechanism, and a triple camera setup on the back comprising a 40MP main, 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro units.
The 40MP main camera packs an RYYB sensor for better light sensitivity and in turn low-light photography. The smartphone also comes with AIS Super Night Mode, 3D Portrait Lighting Effect, and 960fps Slow Motion Video Recording.
Other highlights of the Honor X10 5G include a side-mounted fingerprint reader, GPU Turbo and Kirin Gaming+ 2.0, which uses AI frequency modulation to achieve a balance between gaming performance and power consumption.
