Honor, a Huawei sub-brand recently announced that it will soon unveil a new 5G-enabled smartphone on May 20 2020. The new smartphone will be called the Honor X10. The brand posted on Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo about the upcoming device. Honor also shared a poster for the smartphone which confirms that the Honor X10 will support 5G networks.
The brand or the poster did not reveal any more details about the Honor X10. However, a recent look at the smartphone from TENAA listings revealed some key specifications of the phone.
The listing reveals that the Honor X10 will feature a 6.63-inch FHD+ LCD screen. Further, it is expected to be powered by the Kirin 820 SoC recently launched by the brand. The upper mid-range Kirin 820 chipset is 5G-enabled and also pretty powerful. In another recent report, it was revealed that the processor outscored other flagship processors from just a year ago. This includes the Snapdragon 855 used on the OnePlus 7 Pro, or even Huawei’s own Kirin 980 SoC.
In terms of optics, the Honor X10 will sport a 40-megapixel Sony IMX600y main sensor on the back panel. The quad-camera module will also feature an 8-megapixel ultrawide and likely 2-megapixel macro and depth sensors. On the front will be a 16-megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling.
The Honor X10 will also sport a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The lack of a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and an AMOLED panel, needed for an in-display mechanism confirm this. The phone will run on a 4,200mAh battery and support 22.5W fast charging. More details on the Honor X10 should soon pop up as we near closer to the official launch.

Google India on Wednesday launched a new website focused on COVID-19 related security risks which is now available in regional languages such as Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Bangla. The website will inform about online risks and scams and help users stay safe online.
During the past couple of weeks, Google‘s advanced machine-learning classifiers have globally seen 18 million daily malware and phishing attempts related to COVID-19, in addition to more than 240 million COVID-related spam messages.
“The Google Threat Analysis Group continuously monitors for sophisticated hacking activity, and their security systems have detected a range of new scams such as phishing emails posing as messages from charities and NGOs battling COVID-19, directions from “administrators” to employees working from home, and even notices spoofing healthcare providers,” the company said in a statement.
With many of the COVID-19 related scams coming in the form of phishing emails, it’s important to pause and evaluate any COVID-19 related email before clicking any links or taking other action. According to the tech giant, users should be wary of requests for personal information such as home addresses or bank details.
Google systems have also spotted malware-laden sites that pose as sign-in pages for popular social media accounts, health organizations, and even official coronavirus maps. To help protect you against these risks, the company has built advanced security protections into Google products to automatically identify and stop threats before they ever reach users.
Google machine learning models in Gmail already detect and block more than 99.9 percent of spam, phishing, and malware. Also, the security built into the Chrome browser also protects users by alerting them in case of fraudulent websites. Moreover, Google Play Protect scans millions of apps in Google Play to safeguard users against any such risks, the company said.
