The Honor X10 is now official. The device was unveiled in China today. It will succeed the Honor 9X series which was announced last year.

The company has also tweaked the naming scheme of the series. Instead of Honor 10X, it's now called Honor X10. This most likely is to avoid the name clash with the upcoming Redmi 10X series

We also get the clean no-notch design and 93% screen to body ratio as the smartphone sport a pop-up selfie camera. The X10 comes with a 90Hz refresh rate.
