Ahead of Honor 10 Note launch, we are seeing more leaks around the device. Honor itself previously shared a teaser on its official Weibo account hinting that Honor Note 10 debut will happen soon, though it does not mention any specific date or other details.

Honor’s President George Zhao in a Weibo post last said the company to have been working on this device for nearly two years and explained why they skipped the Note 9 moniker. Honor Note 10 images, which compared the upcoming phone to gaming console Nintendo Switch were spotted on the Dutch website Techtastic. The phone could sport a 6.9-inch notch-less display, said to have a smaller footprint than Switch.

The phone will run Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with the company’s own EMUI 8.0 skin on top. Honor Note 10 will be backed by a 6,000mAh non-removable battery. Previous reports hint at a 16MP dual camera setup on the back, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.
