Huawei launched the Honor 10 in April. The phone comes with the Krin 970 SoC and 6GB of RAM. It is Honor’s flagship variant. However, now the company seems to be getting ready to launch a more powerful version of the smartphone, dubbed as the Honor 10 GT. The phone is expected to launch in China at the moment, and is said to begin shipping from July 24.

The Honor 10 GT was spotted on the company’s Chinese website. It is noted to come with some sizable upgrades and new features. The most noticeable upgrade the Honor 10 GT has over the Honor 10 is that it comes with 8GB of RAM, which should further make it better for gaming and multitasking.

The smartphone will be powered by a Kirin 970 SoC and will be enabled with Honor’s GPU Turbo technology out-of-box. The company introduced the technology a month back and claims that it helps boost the performance of the smartphone by 60 percent while lowering power usage by 30 percent. Honor is also planning on rolling out the feature to other smartphones.

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. At the front, it boasts a 24-megapixel camera. While the camera configuration seems to be the same as the Honor 10, Huawei is enabling the Honor 10 GT with an AI-based Super Night scene mode, which is also available on the Huawei P20 and the P20 Pro. However, the is feature is expected to come to the Honor 10 GT through a beta update from July 12.
