Honor Note 10 is a massive 6.9-inch smartphone

People have been complaining about smartphones getting bigger and bigger for years. Some like the ability to reach all major portions of the screen when holding the device in one hand. Others are using their phones more and more for TV, movie, and gaming consumption so they prefer the bigger screens. This trend seemed to reach a certain plateau until companies moved away from the 16:9 aspect ratio and now it’s happening again with the slimming down of the bezels. Honor is certainly one of the companies that stays on top of the leading trends and they have officially launched the Honor Note 10 with a whopping 6.9-inch display.


When screens of this size are starting to get released, we have to take a step back and put things into perspective. Google released two Nexus tablets with displays that spanned 7 inches from corner to corner. Amazon has a Fire HD tablet that has a 7-inch display as well. Naturally, the Honor Note 10 doesn’t have big bezels like those tablets do, but it does give you an idea of the size of this phone. This device isn’t going to be a slouch in the hardware department either with the company using the HiSilicon Kirin 970 SoC.

The Honor Note 10 will have 6GB and 8GB of RAM so you can switch between applications and games with minimal lag. Naturally, it will be equipped with Android 8.1 Oreo with the latest version of EMUI. The initial launch event for the Honor Note 10 is taking place today, July 31st and it’s for the Chinese market.

The device will be available via Vmall, JD.com, Suning.com, and Tmall tomorrow, August 1st in China. The 6GB + 64GB model will cost 2799 yuan, the 6GB + 128GB model will cost 3199 yuan, and the 8GB + 128GB model will cost 3599 yuan. The phone comes in two colors: Magic Night Black and Phantom Blue. Check out the full spec sheet below.

Note: Huawei has stopped providing official bootloader unlock codes for its devices. Therefore, the Honor Note 10’s bootloader cannot be unlocked, which means that Magisk/TWRP/Project Treble GSIs/AOSP-based custom ROMs are all out of the question.
