“Gaming+ technology is said to boost the graphics performance and Brings faster speeds, better image quality to mobile gaming”

Huawei’s sub-brand Honor has announced Gaming+ technology for its flagship offering the Honor View 20 (first impression). The technology is said to include a series of updates that improve the performance, graphics quality and image definitions of mobile games. Theoretically speaking, the Gaming+ “upgrades” the overall system with GPU’s efficiency, load optimisation well as gaming experience on the phone. This sounds similar to the Huawei/ Honor’s GPU Turbo technology that was launched last year.


Gaming+ is compatible with Mali-G76 GPU chipset that Honor View 20 rocks. Honor touts that the technology can improve SoC energy efficiency by 20.34 percent while playing Fortnite at 60fps on Honor View20. Fortnite Vulkan version can also be supported on the phone, while mobile games like QQ Speed and Arena of Valor have been optimised to support the high definition feature. 


In addition to that, the company also announced an ecosystem of applications for Honor View 20’s 3D ToF lens. Honor claims that the apps take advantage of the 3D lens to bring new augmented reality features to the handset. Moreover, Fortnite Honor Guard outfit for Honor View 20 users was also unveiled in collaboration with Epic Games. Starting from
25th February, Honor View 20 users will be able to redeem the exclusive outfit at the company’s official website.

To recall, the HONOR View 20 was unveiled in Paris (followed by India launch) last month. Its major highlights include a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 rear camera, 25MP in-screen front camera, 7nm Kirin 980 AI chipset, AI Triple-Antenna Wi-Fi technology, and aurora nanotexture design. The phone is a mid-range Android-powered offering, which retails at a starting price of Rs 37,999.
