Huawei will roll out GPU Turbo Tech on these smartphones from August

April 3, 2022 0 Comments

The Huawei Mate 10 phones will get the update first, and the Chinese company has said that no Huawei phone in the United States will get the GPU Turbo software update.

In June of this year, Chinese conglomerate Huawei announced that it would bring a new technology, the GPU Turbo, to the phone’s Honor line. A few days later it unveiled a detailed plan of technology rollout for both Huawei and Honor smartphones. In the latest development, the company has released a list of Huawei devices that will receive a GPU Turbo update as well as a rollout release date.

Software expansion for the GPU Turbo will begin in August 2018 and the Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro and Mate RS will be the first set of devices to receive updates. The next line is the P20 series phones, P20 and P20 Lite, which will be updated in August. The list shows that the Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will be the last devices to be updated in November this year.

When Huawei announced the GPU Turbo technology in June, it claimed that with hardware-software integration, the technology would dramatically increase the graphics processing efficiency of mobile phones and provide users with a smoother and faster mobile experience. At the time, the company listed some popular Honor phones, such as the Honor 10, Honor View10, Honor 9 Lite and Honor 7X, which will be updated gradually. Huawei claims that they have achieved a technological advancement to improve graphics processing efficiency by 60 percent where System on Chip (SOC) has reduced power consumption by 30 percent.

By the end of June, the company had announced the new rollout schedule at an event in Shenzhen, China, and provided details on when the new software feature would be launched on devices in different regions. The original article, published in Android Authority, states that only a few devices will receive updates in all regions. The website updated the article with a comment from a Huawei representative who confirmed that the GPU Turbo update would not be rolled out to any Huawei smartphone in the United States.

This election update is expected to roll out because there could be a dispute between the company and the US government. For those who do not know, the US government has said that China could instruct its manufacturers (Huawei and ZTE) to create back doors for spying on their devices to identify the exact coordinates of US troops and track their movements. In February of this year, a team of six top U.S. intelligence chiefs warned American citizens not to use Huawei and ZTE products and services. The judiciary is also reportedly investigating Huawei for violating sanctions against Iran.
