The iPhone XS Max was the largest smartphone Apple had ever created when it launched in September 2018. With a 6.5-inch display, barely any screen bezel and the now-iconic top-screen notch it was a dominating presence in the hand.

That's essentially the pitch behind this late entry to the Note 10 series, which already includes the Note 10 and Note 10 Plus. There's no Samsung Galaxy S10e equivalent within the Note lineup, so this phone sort of acts as the Note 10e, if you will. When we tried out the Note 10 Lite at CES 2020 it didn't actually feel light in the hand.
That’s according to supply chain sources speaking to Yesky (a Chinese smartphone news site), who say the screen is now easier to produce, thereby lowering the cost of manufacturing the phone. Whether those savings will be passed on to consumers is unclear, but given how prohibitively expensive most folding phones are it would make sense for Huawei to cut prices where it can. Lots of foldable phones are in the works.
