Huawei’s Honor View 10 (Review) was announced earlier this year and turned out to be a high-end smartphone that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. It is a great phone, with all the features of a flagship device.

When launched, the View 10 came in two RAM and storage configurations. Customers could choose between 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, or 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. Now, Huawei has launched a new variant in China, which comes with 8GB of RAM. The internal storage is still capped at 128GB, but that extra RAM should provide more room for multi-tasking, and improved gaming performance.

The Honor View 10, or the Honor V10 as known in China, has been a great success in the country ever since its launch. The phone is also set to get the GPU Turbo update from Huawei, which will make it, even more, faster for gaming use. And now, to improve sales of the phone, an 8GB RAM variant has been introduced.

The 8GB RAM variant of the Honor View 10 will come with 128GB of internal storage and will go on sale on August 14th. The pricing for the device hasn’t been announced, but we don’t expect it to cost much more than the 6GB RAM variant. It comes in 5 color options; Navy Blue, Midnight Black, Beach Gold, Aurora Blue, Charm Red.

We aren’t sure if Honor will release the 8GB variant in India. For now, this remains to be a China-only exclusive, but we will let you know if that changes.
