Huawei Honor brand at a dedicated event today has taken the wrap off its much-rumored smartphone -the Honor Note T10. The device as expected is as enormous as the Mi Max 3 from Xiaomi but comes with a higher price tag than the Mi Max 3.
A major highlight of the Honor Note 10 like we explained here is the presence of a special button which you can use to trigger the GPU Turbo Tech, CPU Turbo, and Double Turbo mode for optimum performance. The device also houses a large enough battery but is 500mAh battery short of the one embedded in the Mi Max 3. Also part of the mouth-watering package is the so-called ‘ NINE’ liquid cooling technology with 8-layer heat dissipation and a PC-grade liquid cooling pipe that promises 41% increase in heat dissipation and CPU temperature reduction of up to 10° C. These technologies are said to enhance the performance of the device, especially during intense gaming sessions.
Much like the Mi Max 3 from XIaomi, the latest phablet from Honor features a large 6.9″ HD+ super AMOLED display with tiny bezels all round and 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, the Honor Note 10 houses Huawei’s own HiSilicon 64-bit octa-core Kirin 970, of course, it is coupled with Huawei’s GPU Turbo and with Honor’ s new CPU Turbo technology. Honor is offering the device in 2 versions – the Honor Note 10 with 4GB RAM + 64GB storage, Honor Note 10 with 6GB RAM +128GB versions as well as a premium version with 8GB coupled with 128GB storage. All three variants can be expanded up to 256GB using microSD card but at the expense of the second SIM.
On the flip side, the Note 10 houses a vertically stacked dual rear cameras(24MP+16MP) with a couple of AI features, while a single 13MP camera sits above the display for selfies. There is no notch and the dedicated turbo button can also be used as a camera shutter. Worthy of note is the presence of a rear fingerprint sensor, face unlock, Dolby Atmos, Dual speakers, and full connectivity features.
The device is tipped to go on sale in China on August 1 in Midnight Black and Phantom Blue color options. It is priced at 2799 yuan/US$ 409, 3199 yuan/US$ 468 and 3599 yuan (US$ 527 for the base 6GB variant, the higher variant, and the premium variant respectively.
