Well, that deflated quickly. The rumor for a 6000 mah battery in the Honor Note 10
, that is. The brand has wiggled its way into the US market for unlocked phones with a good value-for-money ratio, offering, say, the View 10
for just $399 last week.
While we already had numerous leaks about the upcoming Honor Note 10 and its giant 6.95" display, the behemoth just passed through the Chinese equivalent of the FCC, revealing the exact dimensions, and, sadly, the battery capacity. We say sadly, as the phone is listed with a "mere" 4900 mAh battery pack, which is a far cry from the 6000 mAh speculation. Still, a nearly 5000 mAh battery is nothing to sniff at. Until you look at the phone's dimensions, that is.
Listed with a 177 x 88 x 7.65mm body, the Note 10 is undoubtedly a huge handset. Granted, the top and bottom bezels are rather slim, but the newly-announced Mi Max 3
is 6.94 x 3.44 x 0.31 in (176.15 x 87.4 x 7.99 mm), and it packs a much larger, 5500 mAh battery pack. What else can we reasonably expect when the phone is announced a week from now?
An AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, an agin Kirin 970 SoC with the new GPU turbo boost, and 6GB RAM / 128GB storage. When it comes to the camera, the Honor Note 10 is said to sport Huawei's 24MP+16MP rear kit, flanked by a fingerprint sensor, which should help the one-handed operation of the giant "phone."
