Huawei just unveiled the Honor 10 GT, which will be its first smartphone with 8GB of RAM. Its predecessor, the Honor 10, which launched in April for China and in May internationally, only had options for 4GB or 6GB of RAM.

Besides the extra RAM, the new smartphone will have the same specs and appearance as the regular Honor 10. The Honor 10 GT has a 5.8-inch, 2280 x 1080 LCD display with a fingerprint sensor on the home button. It has a notch where the front-facing 24-megapixel selfie sensor is and an otherwise nearly edge-to-edge display.

It’s powered by a Kirin 970 processor and a 3,400 mAh battery. On the back, it has dual rear cameras that are 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel. As for ports, it’s got a 3.5mm headphone jack and USB Type-C ports.

The phone is set to be released later this month in China on July 24th. While the official price hasn’t been announced yet, given its similar specs and appearance to the Honor 10, the Honor 10 GT could potentially cost a little more than 2,599 yuan ($391.42). We’ve reached out to Huawei to see if the phone may become available elsewhere.

Does Your Smartphone Battery Die Way Too Fast? .

What can I do to make it last longer? A. There are a few strategies you can use to conserve a smartphone's battery power, says Rich Fisco, CR's head of smartphone testing. To start, go to your phone's Settings > Battery menu to see whether you have a "low power mode" or "battery saver" that can be activated. What these do—and you can do à la carte if your phone doesn't have that catchall setting—is lower the screen's brightness. Also disable notifications from apps, such as Facebook and Spotify, and, if you use an animated wallpaper on your home screen, switch to a static one, such as a photo. For Android phone owners, Fisco also recommends checking your widgets, which are Android phone features that give you real-time looks at what your various apps are doing. "If they're live and constantly updating," he says, "disable or delete them." If none of this helps appreciably, check your smartphone battery's capacity. Recent updates to iOS let you monitor your iPhone's "battery health" in Settings. You can do the same thing with Android phones by downloading an app; Fisco uses one called AccuBattery that shows what percentage of original capacity your smartphone battery is currently operating at.
