Early last month, Huawei announced two phones with its 'GPU Turbo' technology: the Honor Play and Honor 9i. Unveiled a few hours ago, the Honor Note10 is the latest device with this new gaming tech, and it packs a 6.95" display and some decent specs for, as is common with Chinese phones, an affordable price.
|Screen||6.95" 2220x1080 AMOLED|
|Dimensions||177 x 85 x 7.65mm, 230g|
|Processor||Kirin 970, octa-core|
|Storage||64GB / 128GB, microSD expansion|
|Camera (rear)||24MP + 16MP, f/1.8|
|Camera (front)||13MP, f/2.0|
|OS||Android 8.1 Oreo|
We're guessing it's not a coincidence that this giant phone is branded as a 'Note.' In fact, Huawei has even decided to adopt a certain Korean company's branding scheme by pushing 'Note10' together.
The text reads "Honor Note10. Bigger. Better. Cooler."
Back to the phone itself, though; the Honor Note10 is powered by the same stuff that you'll find in the Honor Play (Kirin 970 and 6GB of RAM), albeit with a much larger screen (6.95" vs 6.3") and a much bigger battery (5,000mAh vs 3,750mAh). Like many Huawei phones, the back is glass, and the frame is aluminum. Unfortunately, all that contributes to a hefty 230g weight.
Out back, there are two cameras, one coming in at 24MP and the other at 16MP. The front camera is a 13MP affair. NFC and dual-SIM functionality are present, the former of which was missing in the Honor Play.
The 6GB/64GB Note10 is priced at 2799 CNY (~$411 USD), and the 6GB/128GB model a bit higher at 3199 CNY (~$469 USD). It's available in Magic Night Black (fancy name) and Phantom Blue.
