You may still remember the days when it seemed impossible that a smartphone would have a 7 inch display. We saw tablets with 7 inch displays but smartphones have gradually been pushing the envelope on the display size over the past few years. Huawei today launched the Honor Note 10 which has a 7 inch display. It merits mentioning here that this isn’t the first smartphone ever to feature a 7 inch display. It’s not even the first from Huawei to do so.
The Honor Note 10 has a 7 inch 1080×2220 pixel resolution AMOLED display, a Kirin 970 processor with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It doesn’t have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The handset runs Android Oreo and comes with Huawei’s EMUI custom skin.
This device is the successor to the Honor Note 8 which was launched back in 2016. It had a 6.6 inch display which was still large compared to other devices. Its successor has a display size which firmly puts the device into tablet territory.
Huawei has made the Honor Note 10 available in China initially. It’s priced at about $410 for the entry level model which features 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It remains to be seen, though, if this handset will be released in other markets across the globe.
