Games rely on the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) to perform well, and Huawei has a software update coming that will boost the efficiency of the GPU by 60 percent and cut down battery consumption by 30 percent. In China, a special edition of the Honor 10 called the Honor 10 GT has been released with the software already in place. It is being touted as the most versatile smartphone at the moment and since it belongs to the company's Honor lineup, it is going to be more expensive than the regular Honor 10, but certainly cheaper to gain the necessary attention thanks to its improved performance and upgraded RAM count. Huawei is enabling the Honor 10 GT with a new AI-based Super Night scene mode. Aside from the RAM count, though, everything else is identical. The phone is powered by Kirin 970 chipset and come with AI features and dual camera stacked with one RGB sensor and the second one is a monochrome sensor.

The Honor 10 GT will land with a 5.8in LCD display, home button fingerprint reader, Kirin 970 processor, and dual rear cameras - expect a 24MP and a 16MP sensor to play with. The pricing of the Honor 10 GT is not yet known.

This 8GB variant will appear in a flash sale on July 24 on Honor's online store and JD.com but so far there's been no word on the price tag. In terms of an worldwide release, though, the Huawei-owned brand is yet to announce any details.

To be clear, it's an Honor device, but Huawei owns that branding. In terms of memory, the device will be available in one variant only with 8GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. The front hosts a 24-megapixel selfie camera with 1.8-micron pixels.

Huawei launched the Honor 10 in April. This new phone comes with step-up specs we have seen in the Honor 10 and a whole lot more extras.

The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo coupled with EMUI 8.1 on top.

While the Honor 10 GT won't be rivaling the likes of the Razer Phone, Xiaomi's Black Shark, or the upcoming Asus ROG Phone, it's release is yet another sign that phones built for and marketed towards gamers are on the rise.
