Honor Note 10 teased in a new poster, launch imminent

HUAWEI's sub-brand Honor is about to drop its latest flagship smartphone under the Note series, the Honor Note 10, packed with HUAWEI's GPU Turbo technology which should arrive any time soon.

It's been two years since HUAWEI's subsidiary Honor launched a phablet under the Honor Note series. The latest Honor Note device is the Note 8, which was unveiled back in July 2016. Last year, we hoped to see the purported Note 9 but to no avail. Now, the Chinese sub-brand has shared its plans to introduce the latest-gen Note phone, which will go by the name Note 10 skipping the naming Note 9. It was revealed to us by Honor's President George Zhao, that the upcoming phone has been on the works for two years now.

To reaffirm the naming scheme, Honor published an official teaser on its website just recently showing a silhouette of the smartphone and the moniker Honor Note 10. The phrases in the poster are written in Chinese characters, which when translated, state that Honor is done with the 9 moniker and that it's now time for the 10. It also discloses that the Note 10 will be outed in Beijing, China. Apparently, there's no mention regarding the exact release date and time albeit we know that it will happen very soon. As the company's newest flagship phone, the Honor Note 10 will debut with HUAWEI's GPU Turbo technology.

Design-wise, the Honor Note 10 is expected to boast a premium-looking chassis and a curved glass back panel with a metallic frame. It will sport a dual-camera setup with an LED flash at the back, stacked in a vertical fashion. Below it, a fingerprint scanner is sitting nicely. Up front, is a large 6.9-inch Super AMOLED display. We are not yet sure whether it will come with an iPhone X-like notch or not and Honor hasn't announced yet the exact release date as of date, but the rumors have it that the Honor Note 10 will arrive in late July or early August, just in time for the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note9.
