The Honor Note 10 is an upcoming phablet from Huawei’s subsidiary Honor. The device has been in the news in recent weeks with leaks covering specs, color variants, and a special Rolls Royce Edition. Now live photos of the device have surfaced and we get to have a good look at the display.
The Honor Note 10 is said to pack a 6.9-inch AMOLED screen. That is the same size as Xiaomi’s Mi Max 3 which launches tomorrow. However, these live photos of the Note 10 show the device is wider than that of the Mi Max 3.
So if they do have the same screen size why does the Honor Note 10 look wider? We came up with two plausible reasons. First, the angle the photos were taken makes it appear so. Second, the Honor Note 10 doesn’t have an 18:9 aspect ratio.
If you remember, the Huawei Mate 10 doesn’t have an 18:9 aspect ratio but it has smaller bezels more or less the size of the Mate 10 Pro which has an 18:9 aspect ratio. We want to believe the same design has been used for the Honor Note 10.
In the pictures, the phone is shown side-by-side with the Nintendo Switch. The Switch has a 6.2-inch screen but thanks to the huge bezels surrounding it, it is bigger than the Honor Note 10.

The bezels on the Honor Note 10 are small and the display has curved corners. The top bezel is home to a camera, sensors, and earpiece while the bottom has the Honor logo. There is no image of the rear.
When the Honor Note 10 launches, it will come with a Kirin 970 processor, 6GB of RAM, and EMUI 8.1.
