  • Honor’s upcoming X30 Max phone apparently has a 7-inch display.
  • This would make it the largest phone since Huawei and Xiaomi’s 7-inch devices.

Honor has enjoyed a solid debut year as an independent brand, offering the Honor 50 series and the Honor Magic 3 flagship range. It looks like the company still has more to offer, and one upcoming device could pick up where phones like the Huawei Mate 20X and Xiaomi Mi Max series left off.

Weibo tipster Bald Panda claimed that Honor is working on the Honor X30 Max, dishing out a few apparent specs. More specifically, we’re allegedly looking at a device with a 7.09-inch display, a 6,000mAh battery, 22.5W charging, a Dimensity 900 5G chipset, and a 64MP main camera.

The display size in particular means that we could be looking at one of the biggest smartphones of the year, making it ideal for people with large hands. Naturally, big phones tend to have big batteries as well, so we’re glad to see the 6,000mAh battery apparently on board too.

Fellow Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station reiterated the display size in a recent post, adding that it should arrive in China before November 11. There’s no word on wider availability though, but we hope Honor plans to bring it to more markets.

We don’t have any idea of pricing either, but the relatively slow charging speed and less capable Dimensity SoC suggest we’re looking at a mid-ranger rather than a flagship-level device. Still, this will be a welcome option for consumers who fancy a giant screen on their phones.
