Honor 10 GT gets unveiled with GPU Turbo technology and 8GB of RAM
Following the release of Huawei’s GPU Turbo technology last month, the Chinese company announced that the performance-enhancing software would begin rolling out to a variety of its devices over the course of the summer. Now, however, putting an even heavier focus on the technology, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has announced a new variant of the Honor 10 which also makes use of it.

The new device, dubbed the Honor 10 GT, brings relatively few upgrades over the regular model and appears to be more of a marketing strategy aimed at promoting the gaming capabilities of Honor smartphones than an effort to offer anything new to customers. Nevertheless, the device does offer one major upgrade in the form of 8GB of RAM, which subsequently makes it the first device manufactured by Huawei to offer this amount. For comparison, the Honor 10 that was launched back in April is available with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Aside from the RAM count, though, everything else is identical. This means a large 5.84-inch display complete with a notch up top is once again present along with the Kirin 970 processor on the inside. Also, in terms of the camera setup, a main 16-megapixel sensor is accompanied by a secondary 24-megapixel lens on the rear, while in the selfie department, yet another 24-megapixel camera is present.

As with all smartphones equipped with the GPU Turbo technology, those who purchase the Honor 10 GT can expect a performance boost of around 60% when gaming, although the extra RAM should also help improve the results even further when compared to the regular offering. It’s worth noting, however, that the original Honor 10 will also be receiving the performance software in the near future.

On a final note, for those interested in the Honor 10 GT, no exact price point has been announced as of yet, although sales will commence July 24 in China. In terms of an international release, though, the Huawei-owned brand is yet to announce any details.
