The novelty has got a 6.95-inch 2.5D AMOLED-display with a resolution of Full HD+ (2220×1080 pixels), an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 and support for HDR10. “The heart” of the smartphone was the eight-core chipset Kirin 970 with a maximum clock frequency of 2.4 GHz with the support of 6 to 8 GB of RAM depending on the modification.
For maximum performance, the smartphone uses the proprietary GPU Turbo technology, as well as the Double Turbo function, which allows the processor to overclock the processor by pressing a dedicated hardware button. To avoid overheating at higher frequencies, the NINE liquid cooling system was used in Honor Note 10. According to the specification, it provides a 41% increase in heat output compared to previous solutions of the company. Its use will further reduce the temperature of the chipset by 10 degrees.

The resolution of the front camera is 13 Mp; In any shooting mode, scene recognition with artificial intelligence is available.
