Huawei Mate 10, P20 and more devices will get GPU Turbo via OTA Update

Every OEM releases a new piece of hardware that makes their phones faster and more powerful. Well that’s not the case with Huawei. Starting this August, it’ll begin rolling out its free GPU Turbo update that dramatically boots the graphical performance for a number of its existing  devices.

A GPU Turbo works similar like a turbocharger in a car, noting that it’s “able to accelerate performance by optimizing system utilization of software and hardware resources.”

When the update lands on a phone, it’ll see a 60% increase in graphics processing and a 30% reduction in power consumption — resulting in better gaming performance and longer battery life.

Huawei seems to be working with developers to ensure their apps take proper advantage of GPU Turbo. Popular games like PUBG Mobile and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang are already doing well with GPU Turbo.

The current rollout schedule for the GPU Turbo update is as follows:
• Huawei Mate 10, Mate 10 Pro, Mate RS — Coming August 2018 to Europe, Russia, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa
• Huawei P20 and P20 Pro — Coming August 2018 to Europe, Russia, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa
• Huawei Mate 10 Lite — Coming September 2018 to all markets
• Huawei Nova 2i — Coming September 2018 to all markets
• Huawei P Smart — Coming September 2018 to all markets
• Huawei P20 Lite — Coming September 2018 to Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa
• Huawei Y9 (2018) — Coming September 2018 to all markets
• Huawei Mate 9 and Mate 9 Pro — Coming November 2018 to all markets
• Huawei P10 and P10 Plus — Coming November 2018 to all markets
