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.
