Honor, a brand close to Huawei, is preparing to revive its phablet line called (rather imaginatively) Note. After a leak revealed the design and technical specifications of the device online, Honor has decided to make it official, teasing the Note 10 as its next offering on Chinese social media.
Honor itself wanted to confirm arrival of its new smartphone on the Chinese social network Weibo. The company has in fact shared a teaser in which you can clearly read the name Note 10. Follows of the smartphone industry might remember that the last smartphone in Honor's Note series was Honor Note 8, but it seems that smartphone manufacturers have long since abandoned the pretense of a logical numerical progression.
The company said it had been working for two years to make the smartphone, but according to leaks leaked in recent days, it resembles other devices from the company very closely. According to the teaser the launch will take place in Beijing even if an official date has not yet been indicated: there is a good chance that the smartphone will be launched first for the Chinese market and then an event will be held for the launch on the European market during the IFA in Berlin.

Honor Note 10 sports a golden coat. In these early images you'll find a design similar to View 10, with a metal shell and a large display on the front. On the front there's the display with a 18:9 format that is rumored to have QHD resolution and an extreme diagonal of 6.9 inches, dimensions that were reserved for tablets until a few years ago. The panel will likely be an AMOLED manufactured by Samsung.
The fingerprint reader is located at the back, just like it was in the good old days, and not under the display. There are also two horizontally arranged cameras on the body, the main one boasting 16MP supported by AI.
In the section dedicated to technical specifications there's the top-range HiSilicon SoC, and the Kirin 970 that Huawei and Honor are so fond of. This is all joined by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. The device features Huawei's Boost GPU software technology that promises 60% more performance with 30% less power consumption than classic home software.
The most impressive feature is definitely the huge 6000 mAh battery that should guarantee a long life despite the huge front panel.
There is no information about the date the Honor Note 10 will be released internationally, but it could be shown during the IFA in Berlin! Will you be following the German tech fair?
