Hybrid SIM, Dewdrop Notch, GPU Turbo
Hybrid SIM Tray
You can either use a second nanoSIM card, or a microSD card for extra storage capacity. But not both at the same time.
The microSD slot will come in handy, because the HONOR 10 Lite only has 32 GB of internal storage.
There is also a higher-capacity 64 GB model, but microSD storage offers additional peace of mind – even if the phone is physically damaged or destroyed, you can still recover your data or photos and videos from the microSD card.
The HONOR 10 Lite (Price Check) has a Full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, and a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. It features a dewdrop notch that is noticeably smaller than that of the Honor 10.
The display notch allows for notifications to be confined to the top, giving you more space for your work… or really, your games. Heh… In games or apps that do not support the notch, it will simply “disappear” by turning black.
GPU Turbo is a hardware and software combination that increases the “efficiency” of the GPU by up to 60%.
It does not mean you get a 60% boost in frame rate, although Honor says it will greatly reduce the jitter rate (variance between the highest and lowest frame rates), while appreciably increasing the overall frame rate.
How does GPU Turbo work? From what we understand, it uses a proprietary algorithm in the graphics driver to detect the change between the current frame being rendered, and the next one.
This allows the HONOR 10 Lite (Price Check) to boost CPU and GPU performance for completely new frames, and reduce them for frames with few changes.
The only downside? GPU Turbo support is currently limited. Extremely limited.
From what we understand – it will only work with PUBG Mobile, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and King Glory. Naturally, game support will be extended to more games over time.
