Huawei unveiled the Honor Play and the Honor 9i earlier in the month in China. One of the key highlights of the phones is the GPU Turbo technology, which the company claims can increase performance of the device by 60 percent, while also reducing battery consumption by 30 percent. Being a vital feature, Huawei promised to bring the technology to other smartphones through software updates. Now, the company seems to be delivering on that promise by bringing the feature to Honor 10 and a range of other smartphones.

According a Chinese website called My Drivers, Huawei is currently testing the GPU Turbo technology on Honor 10 in the beta stage of its EMUI 8.1, based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Interested users can head over to Huawei Pollen Club official forum to sign up for the beta tests.

With the technology, Huawei plans to improve gaming performance on its mid-range and high-end phones. Since Honor devices run the same CPU as Huawei smartphones, it’s possible for the company to bring the feature to Honor smartphones as well. Besides Honor 10, the feature is also expected to come to the entire Mate 10 series, Honor V10, Huawei P20 Pro and some other smartphones.

To give you a quick recap, the Honor 10 features a 5.84-inch display with Full HD+ (2280 x 1080 pixels) resolution and tall 19:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone is powered by a Kirin 970 CPU with an option for either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB internal storage. It runs on EMUI 8.1 based on Android 8.1 Oreo and it is backed by a 3,400mAh battery.
