Huawei and its sub-brand Honor do a pretty good job at keeping the Android phone industry interesting. While they still follow the same look that smartphones have adopted nowadays, they like to mix things up with unique features such as the triple camera with a 40MP lens on the P20 Pro, or by offering flagship specifications at mid-range prices with the Honor 10.
They will continue this tradition with the launch of the new Honor Note 10,
which we expect to be launched on Thursday, 30th of August at IFA in Berlin this year. Edit: A new poster shows that the Honor Note 10 will be announced on 31st of July, so something else will be could be launched at IFA along with the new Kirin 980
As the Note moniker suggests this new device is well into the phablet territory with a giant 6.99″ display. This behemoth of a phone has been shown up close next to a Nintendo Switch and the screen looks huge even though the overall dimensions are smaller than the Switch thanks to its extremely thin bezels.
It is believed the display of the Note 10 will be a Samsung Super AMOLED panel. It will almost certainly come with the Kirin 970 as found on its smaller brother then Honor 10, as the new Kirin 980 will likely be saved for the new Mate 20. It is also expected that the phablet will come with 6 GB RAM, and Android 8.1/EMUI 8.1 as well as a huge battery, possibly 6,000 mAh (which would be amazing if true).
It is likely the Note 10 will have a 16MP + 24 MP dual camera just like the smaller model. It will almost certainly feature the new GPU Turbo technology that Huawei is rolling out to most of the Kirin 970 devices, which combined with a massive screen and big battery could make it the ultimate gaming phone.
