Honor is all set to launch their latest Note device on July 31st.

The Honor phone has a large screen, a massive battery, and the latest hardware to take on the competition.

Honor Note 10: Hands-on Images

The leaked hands-on images were posted by a Weibo user, and shows the front of the phone, the glass back, and the packaging. On the front, you see a lot of screen, and super thin bezels all around. It isn’t completely bezel-less though, so expect the phone to be quite a handful.

Honor is using a metal and glass construction on the Note 10, as with most 2018 devices. The back of the phone is all glass, with a vertical dual-camera setup, and a fingerprint sensor at the top center.

The packaging looks quite simple, as you can see in the above pictures. The phone is massive though, and that back is as shiny as Elon Musk’s future.

Honor Note 10: Rumoured Specifications

As we mentioned earlier, the Honor Note 10 is going to be a flagship phablet device. So far, a few features and specifications of the device have already been confirmed. For example, the phone will get a large 6.9-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display. That is one big display, still not as high resolution as the display on the Galaxy Note 8, but much bigger. The display has an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. There is no under-display fingerprint sensor present, unfortunately.

Internally, the phone is powered by the latest octa-core Kirin 970 chipset from Huawei’s HiSilicon brand. This is a powerful processor, which is said to be faster and efficient than the Snapdragon 845. The phone has up to 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. And that is something you will need with all that screen. The storage options will start at 64GB, and you also get a microSD slot for adding more space.

The company has also confirmed that the Honor Note 10 will be getting a large 5000mAh battery. That is a lot of charges, and it should give the phablet at least 2 days of usage. The processor, RAM, and battery are enough for all the latest demanding games, and apps.

In the camera department, the Honor Note 10 has a dual camera set up at the back, comprising of a 16MP and another 24MP lens. The phone uses AI software to enhance photo capturing abilities and to provide improved low-light photos. The main sensor can shoot 4K videos at 30fps, and also has a portrait mode. The phone features optical zoom as well. On the front, you get a 16MP selfie shooter, which comes with portrait mode and face unlock features.

Finally, the Honor Note 10 will be running the latest Android 8.1 Oreo OS, but with Honor’s own EMUI 8.1 interface. This means more features and customization than stock Android. The phone gets other standard features such as Bluetooth 5.0, USB Type-c port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, dual-SIM with 4G VoLTE support, and more.

Honor Note 10: Expected Price, Launch

Honor is launching the device on July 31st in China, but you can already pre-book it online for a price of just CNY 99. Early adopters will also get a custom headphone along with the phone. In India, the phone should be announced in the coming months as well, with an expected price of around Rs. 40,000. A Rolls-Royce edition of the Note 10 will also be released for a hefty price tag.
