salesforceHow to find the current records RecordType Name in Apex Trigger

In Apex Trigger, we can’t able to retrive the RecordType Name from Trigger context.
but its possible with the below ways:

for Example in Account Record Trigger:

trigger accountTrigger on Account(before update){

Map<ID,Schema.RecordTypeInfo> rt_Map = Account.sObjectType.getDescribe().getRecordTypeInfosById();

for(Account acc : trigger.new){
string recordtypeName = rt_map.get(acc.RecordTypeId).getName();
if(recordtypeName == 'ACCOUNT RECORD TYPE NAME') {
//Do your functionality here
}

if(rt_map.get(acc.RecordTypeId).getName().containsIgnoreCase('ACCOUNT RECORD TYPE NAME')){
//Do your functionality here
}
}
}
