Having experienced a very long time of spottings, teasers, and teasers, the Honor Note 10 denotes the recovery of Huawei mark Honor's phablet series, which was briefly suspended with the Honor Note 8 out of 2016. Like many Huawei phones, the back is glass, and the frame is aluminum. Also, posters have suggested that the phone would come with "Cool" technology, which hints that this phone may have in-built temperature control. When it comes to the battery, the unit will have a 5,000mAh, that will support the firm's Super Charge feature. Coming to the cameras, the device sports 16MP + 24MP dual cameras on the rear with f/1.8 aperture, auto scene detection, and AIS support.

While the Honor Note 10 is a productivity-oriented flagship smartphone, the Honor Play is marketed as a gaming-oriented mid-range handset.

The Honor Note is equipped with the powerful Kirin 970 SoC with GPU Turbo, a graphics processing acceleration technology that uses hardware and software to enhance the gaming experience.
