Talking about the chipset, the Huawei Honor Note 10 came with the company’s in-house Kirin chipset paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM (depending on your memory choice). The 6GB RAM variant have internal storage options of 64GB or 128GB, while the 8GB RAM version come with 128GB internal storage. The Huawei Honor Note 10 came with a hybrid SIM card slot, which means you have to ditch one of your SIM card if you want to expand the storage via microSD.
The Huawei Honor Note 10 chipset uses a liquid cooling solution which the maker calls “the nine”, as it consists of 8 layers of dissipation and a ninth one that is basically a PC-grade liquid-cooled pipe promising 41% better heat management. This in turn means 10°C lower temperatures under load.
The Huawei Honor Note 10 supports the GPU Turbotech, but it also introduces a new CPU Turbo features as well. Both software enhancements work together to form the Double Turbo mode, which can be launched with a press of the dedicated hardware button on the bottom.
From the camera department, the Huawei Honor Note 10 has a 24MP main camera on the back, aided by a 16MP secondary unit. The front-facing camera is a 13MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture. The camera has the usual AI software for scene recognition and other AI features. The hardware button for the Double Turbo feature can be used as a shutter when using the camera app.
The Huawei Honor Note 10 came with Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box with EMUI 8.2 on top. The phone is powered by a massive 5000mAh battery, this is good news for every heavy user. Another lucky part is that it also supports Super Charge, which means the huge battery can be topped up faster.
