Massive Honor Note 10 battery confirmed ahead of July 31 debut
We’ve also known for quite some time that a jumbo-sized Honor Note 10 is in the pipeline, eyeing a domestic debut early next week, possibly followed by a European expansion late next month. Unlike what the name suggests, this isn’t going to give Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 a run for its money with an S Pen-rivaling stylus in tow, but it will definitely shine in the battery life department.
Honor’s own official social media handlers have confirmed earlier today that the Note 10 is coming with a gargantuan 5,000 mAh cell under the hood. That compares pretty favorably to the Galaxy Note 9’s oft-rumored 4,000 mAh battery, not to mention the 3,400 and 3,750 mAh juicers found inside the Honor 10 and Honor View 10 respectively.
Of course, that 5,000 mAh battery will probably need to power a ginormous 6.95-inch AMOLED screen, fitting into a body expected to weigh a whopping 230 grams or so. Therefore, it might be fair to compare the Honor Note 10 with a fellow heavyweight like the 6.9-inch Xiaomi Mi Max 3, which packs an even larger 5,500 mAh battery.
In other news, Honor appears to be teasing an advanced cooling technology of some sort, which is yet another sign the Note 10 will cater to hardcore mobile gamers… somehow. We’re definitely talking GPU Turbo optimizations, but there might be something else to this marketing angle as well.
