The latest GPU Turbo increases the graphics performance of the device by 60% and lowers the power usage by 30%. The smartphone is powered by a 2.4 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 970 octa-core processor coupled with Mali-G72 MP12 GPU. As a highlight, GPU Turbo Technology is now used in Honor 10 that can reduce the power consumption by 30% and increase the performance of the smartphone by enhancing graphics process.
The software update is now in beta, but should start arriving to all phones no later than July 15. Honor 10 GT comes with Dual SIM with Dual 4G VoLTE support and has AK4376A Hi-Fi audio chip for the enhanced audio experience.
Huawei has now officially unveiled the first phone from its lineup that carries a whopping 8 GB of RAM. The new model, dubbed the Honor 10 GT, will begin shipping on July 24 in China via the HiHonor store and JD.com. On the front, the smartphone houses a 24MP camera sensor with f/2.0 aperture for selfies and video call.
It has a 5.84 inch display with a 19:9 ratio and a Kirin 970 chipset with AI features, all of which are pretty much identical specs to the Honor 10. The new smartphone is the next in the probable series of the Honor 10 smartphone that was launched in April 2018.
In June, Huawei's sub-brand Honor had introduced Honor Play with GPU Turbo feature.
The Honor 10 GT also gets a new power saving feature which ensures that the device doesn't lose more than 3 percent of its charge when on standby for as much as 8 hours.
It sports a fingerprint sensor on the front side and has an infrared sensor. We also expect some future Huawei and Honor phones to have the GPU Turbo software installed on release. The company is in the process of making the GPU Turbo technology available to other Huawei and Honor handsets via a software update.
For taking pictures, the phone comes with a dual-camera setup at the back, which consists of a 24-megapixel sensor tagged alongside a 16-megapixel sensor. It is running on EMUI 8.1 flavored Android 8.1 Oreo OS.
