Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has sent out official invites for its upcoming IFA 2018 event scheduled for August 30, GSMArena reports. While the invite only says “crazy fast, crazy smart, a new product launch”, what the tech world is widely expecting is company’s flagship Honor Note 10 with Kirin 970 octa-core processor, and AI capabilities.
Honor’s premium Note series of smartphones is coming back after almost two years. This time around Huawei is skipping Honor Note 9. The Honor Note 10 will be the successor of the Honor Note 8, which was introduced back in 2016.
Couple of days back, alleged real-life images of the Honor Note 10 kept beside a Nintendo Switch console were leaked. By the looks of it, the Note 10 seemed smaller than the console screen. But what really stands out are the extremely slim bezels around the screen. Because of these really thin bezels, the upcoming phablet is able to flaunt a 6.9-inch display. In comparison, the Switch comes with a 6.2-inch LCD display.
Honor Note 10 expected specifications, features
The Honor Note 10 was also spotted on Geekbench. The phablet is suggested to carry a 6.9-inch AMOLED screen with 2K resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. It will be powered by Huawei’s own HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor coupled with 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. Incidentally, this is the same chipset that powers the Honor 10, and the Huawei’s P20 and P20 Pro. There have also been rumors about a massive 6,000mAh battery powering the device.
Watch: Honor 10 First Look
It is likely to carry four cameras, which includes dual-camera setups at the front as well as rear. Previously, there was an alleged poster image from Honor China’s official social media account, but it only mentioned one 16-megapixel sensor, and we don’t know whether that’s for selfie or primary camera.
