Huawei's sub-brand Honor has a new smartphone called the Honor Note 10, which has been officially unveiled in China ahead of its commercial launch tomorrow, August 1.
The handset packs a massive 6.95 inch AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and a 2220 by 1080 pixel resolution. Honor has attached some powerful speakers on this device with Dolby Atmos sound enhancements. The large size has also allowed the manufacturer to pack in a 5000mAh battery, which should allow it 18 hours of continuous video playback between charges.
The Honor Note 10 has a vertically arranged dual (16MP+24MP) camera setup on its rear, and a 13MP camera located on its thin bezel in front. All three cameras are AI-enhanced to automatically recognize various scenes and environments, adjust lighting conditions, and of course, beautify your self-portraits.
The handset is powered by a Huawei Kirin 970 processor and comes with up to 128GB GB and 8GB of RAM depending on the configuration you pick.
The handset runs Android 8.1 Oreo, which has the EMUI custom software installed on top.
Honor has included Huawei's GPU Turbo technology with the Note 10, which enhances the gaming experience on the smartphone by diverting extra power to the GPU whenever necessary. The Honor Note 10 also debuts a brand-new proprietary CPU Turbo which in similar fashion maximizes the use of the high end Kirin CPU and large battery.
This makes the device optimal for heavy gaming, and Honor promises that the handset will stay nice and cool courtesy of the liquid cooling system it has within it.
In China, the Honor Note 10 has been priced at CNY 2,799 ($410) which will get you the 64GB model with 6GB of RAM. An extra 400 yuan (around $60) will get you the 128GB version. The highest configuration packs 128GB of storage and 8GB of RAM for 3,599 yuan ($525).
