Today, Huawei has introduced the Honor 10 GT as its first smartphone with 8 GB of RAM as enhanced edition of the Honor 10 that was introduced in April this year. Also, the Honor 10 GT features GPU Turbo (GT) technology that significantly improves the graphics performance of the smartphone.
In June, Huawei’s sub-brand Honor had introduced Honor Play with GPU Turbo feature. The latter is a software and hardware optimized graphics acceleration technology that enhances the graphics performance of a smartphone by 60 percent and at the same time it consumes 30 percent less power. Huawei is in the process of making it available to several Huawei and Honor phones through a software update.
Smartphones with GPU Turbo technology can run games like King of Glory and QQ Speed with full frame rate. The single-thread performance of a GPU Turbo enabled mid-range phone can beat the performance of multi-thread performance of some flagship phones.
The power saving feature on the Honor 10 GT ensures that its power consumption during 8 hours of standby is only 2 to 3 percent. Apart from the powerful GPU Turbo technology, the Honor 10 GT comes with 8 GB of RAM for bolstering its performance.
Huawei had introduced Super Night Scene mode on the Mate 10 for capturing beautiful night shots by using a tripod. The Huawei P20 and P20 Pro that were unveiled earlier this year came with AI smart anti-shake technology enabled Super Night Scene mode for shooting night shots without a tripod. The same camera feature will be brought to Honor 10 GT through a beta update from July 12.
