Powerful Specs in a mid-range phone!
Huawei kicks off their new series launch with a bold message: Grow as the most-loved consumer brand in the Philippines and become #TheNewChoice. Unveiling three new products in the PH market, they bring in the Huawei GR5, the Media Pad M2 8.0, the Mate 8. All to be made available on March 12-15, 2016.
The Huawei GR5 takes up after the Honor Series and is also known as the Huawei Honor 5X. The company is slowly removing the “Honor” brand in its line-up to avoid confusion with other international smartphone buyers.
The GR5 is a sleek, beautifully crafted full metal frame device with a Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB expandable to a whopping 128 GB! Plus, its 5.5.-inch Full HD IPS Screen promises vivid, clear images. To back up performance, Huawei Marketing Manager Nino Carandang ensures that its 3000 mAh battery gives users 35 hours on moderate usage (24 hours for heavy usage).
Drawing inspiration from the G8 (SRP P17,990), the GR5 comes with an improved 2nd gen Fingerprint Sensor that unlocks your device in only half a second. The sensor also doubles as a back button, featuring “Easy Tap” where you can TAP to take selfies, tap to browse photos, tap to turn off your alarm, tap to release your pull-down notifications menu, etc.
For camera-loving peeps, you’d be happy to know that Huawei has partnered up with legendary German camera manufacturer Leica for this. The device offers a 13 MP Main Camera with a f/2.0 aperture perfect for low light situations and a 47mm focal length. It also has a 5 MP for front cam good enough for good quality selfies and video calls.
And the price? Well, just P11,990 for this Power Pack and comes in gold, gray or silver.
