Honor President George Zhao announced today during the launch of the Honor X10 that the line has already exceeded 80 million units shipped to stores. Honor X devices are characterized by offering good performance hardware at a low price, and started with the Honor 3X, launched in December 2013.
As recalled by the GSMArena website, the most recent models, Honor 8X and 9X, were responsible for the high numbers, with 8X alone selling more than 15 million units.
There are great chances that the sales trend will continue with the device announced today. The Honor X10 comes equipped with a Kirin 820 5G processor, 6.63 “20: 9 Full HD + IPS LCD screen with 90Hz refresh rate, 6GB or 8GB of LPPDR4X RAM, 64GB or 128GB UFS 2.1 storage, front pop-up camera 16MP up, set of three rear lenses with 40MP main sensor, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP depth, 4.300mAh battery with 22.5W fast charge and Android 10 under Magic UI 3.1.
The launch will sell for 1,899 yuan, which is significantly low considering the hardware shipped. In an infographic released today by AnTuTu, the Kirin 820 positioned itself just below the Snapdragon 845, and considerably above chips like Exynos 980 and Snapdragon 765G, making it an excellent choice for middlemen.
Honor also announced this week its ViewPad 6 (V6), a strong competitor for the tablet market. The device is equipped with a Kirin 985 processor, 10.4 “IPS LCD screen and 2K resolution in addition to a generous 7.250mAh battery. Its wide connectivity is one of its main highlights, since the device supports WiFi 6 and 5G, as well as Bluetooth 5.1 and USB-C port.
