Huawei finally launched its sub-brand device namely Honor Note 10 after a long wait. This is the second device since Huawei first launched its Honor Note device a while ago.
The Huawei Honor Note 10 comes with flagship-level specifications including the new Kirin 970 chipset, 6 to 8 GB of RAM, 64 to 128 GB of internal storage. The phone also has a liquid cooling system for intensive mobile gaming.
Teased for a long time, most of the phone’s rumored specs have turned out to be true. Combining all of them, the phone has taken a shape of a really powerful hardware, with some new surprises.
The Honor Note 10 comes with a 6.95-inch Full HD+ (1080 x 2220 pixels) AMOLED display with thin side bezels and no notch. The display also supports the HDR10 and has 115% NTSC color gamut.
Inside, the phone hosts Huawei’s in-house Kirin 970 chipset coupled up with 6GB or 8GB of RAM. The internal storage variants of the 6GB model are 64GB or 128GB, while the 8GB version comes with 128GB storage only. There’s also a support for microSD card slot but in a taste of hybrid-slot.
Let’s get down to some cool kinds of stuff. The powerful chipset comes with a liquid cooling solution called “the nine”. The solution has 8 layers of dissipation and a PC-grade liquid cooling pipe that, as claimed, will offer 41% better heat management: 10-degree Celsius lower than usual smartphones while gaming.
And then there’s the GPU Turbo from Huawei that boost the phone’s GPU performance by more. However, this time around, Huawei has also debuted the CPU Turbo technology. Both software amplifications from the company cohesively work to create the new “Double Turbo” mode. The mode can be triggered through a dedicated hardware button on the phone.
Optically, the phone’s no slouch either. The Honor Note 10 boasts a 24MP (f/1.8) main camera at the back complemented by a 16MP (f/1.8) secondary sensor. Selfies are taken care by a 13MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. Usual stuff like AI is also present in the camera section. This should allow users to produce dynamic shots at any given time.
The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with EMUI 8.2 on top. Powering the phone is a humongous 5,000mAh battery. The good is that the huge battery can be charged much faster, thanks to the support for Super Charger.
Pricing wise, the Honor Note 10 is something that every smartphone enthusiast would want. The 6GB/64GB variant is priced CNY 2,799 ($409), the 6GB/128GB variant is CNY 3,199 ($468) while the most powerful variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage is priced at CNY 3,599 ($527).
The Honor Note 10 is available in Midnight Black and Phantom Blue color options. Pre-order of the phone has begun, while it will go on sale this mid-August.
