While Huawei is keeping the mid-range smartphone game alive with the recent launch of the Nova 3, it’s sub-brand Honor isn’t lagging behind in development and might soon release a flagship in the form of the Honor Note 10, something that will take on the upcoming Galaxy Note 9 in the future. Just a couple of days after being spotted on GeekBench, the Honor Note 10 has now surfaced on Chinese web store JD as part of a pre-registration.
According to the listing spotted by MySmartPrice, registrations for the Honor Note 10 will be open till July 25, immediately after which the device will start selling in China on July 26. Though it’s unclear at the moment, JD looks to have set 9998 yuan as the asking price, which is insane for such a device but the actual price might vary considering the device hasn’t gone official yet.
Recent rumours have suggested that the Note 10 will be powered by the same Hisilicon Kirin 970 chipset that was present on the Honor 10 and being a flagship smartphone will come with 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
Another leaked image from PhoneCorridor suggests that the Honor Note 10 will come running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box with an extended power unit of 6,000mAh which will be juiced up with fast charging support through 5V/4.5A Type-C adapter. It’s expected that the Note device will feature a 24MP+16MP dual camera setup at the back, the same that was seen previously on the Honor 10. There will be AI centric photography capabilities with smart scene recognition and portrait mode enhancements which will also work on the front facing the 24MP selfie sensor. The device will sport a 6.9-inch display with a resolution of 1440p which means, the screen on the front will have denser pixels.
While the Honor 10 sells in India for Rs 32,999, we can expect the upcoming Honor flagship to sell at an upwards of Rs 40,000 and thus compete with the likes of the OnePlus 6 and Asus Zenfone 5z.
