The Honor 9N features a dual rear camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.2 aperture, alongside an LED flash.

It's been two years since the last Honor Note device was launched, but fans can now look forward to another massive phablet from the Huawei sub-brand with the Honor Note 10, which was announced in China today.

The Honor 10 GT is the first phone from Honor to have 8GB of RAM. Honor also notes that the outer heat dissipation layer has a PC-grade liquid cooling pipe that promises a 41-percent increase in heat dissipation and CPU temperature reduction of up to 10 degrees Celsius. As per the earlier reports, the Honor Note 10 is said to come with a 6.9-inch QHD+ display. The best part is that there is also an 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage model that costs $525, making it only the second Honor-branded smartphone to feature 8GB of RAM.

Apart from the recently introduced GPU Turbo technology, the Honor Note 10 also features the proprietary CPU Turbo mode which makes the most of the Kirin 970 SoC for times when raw power takes precedence over energy efficiency. The phone comes in both 6GB and 8GB RAM flavors, its 6GB RAM variant is available in both 64GB and 128GB storage options, while the 8GB RAM model comes with 128GB of storage only, though keep in mind that you can expand storage on all variants of the Honor Note 10. A Type-C USB port is included on the bottom of the Honor Note 10, while the phone comes with Bluetooth 4.2 LE. The phone will be available for sale starting August 3rd onwards, and it comes in Magic Night Black and Midnight Blue colour options.

The fingerprint scanner is placed on the rear side, and the device is backed by a beefy 5000mAh battery. The usual AI software for scene recognition and other AI features are at hand. The big USP of the smartphone is its front and back camera that comes loaded with features. The display comes with resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels and 19:9 aspect ratio. The company is expected to unveil the smartphone globally on August 30th at the IFA event in Berlin.

The Honor Note 10 has been launched in China, packing flagship specs and a large, 5,000mAh battery.

You can expect to pay 2,799 yuan (~$410) for the 6GB/64GB model, 3,199 yuan (~$468) for the 6GB/128GB variant, and 3,599 yuan (~$527) for the 8GB/128GB version.
