The device features no notch or hole-punch cutout on the display for the selfie camera and opts for a pop-up camera mechanism instead.

In terms of design, the Honor X10 looks a lot like the Honor 30 series which was launched earlier this year and features a similar rectangular camera module on the back.

The camera module houses a triple camera setup, with a 40MP primary camera, an 8MP wide-angle camera, and a 2MP macro camera. The 40MP primary camera on the device packs in an RYYB filter for better low-light photography. Over on the front, the device has a single 16MP selfie shooter.
