Huawei Mate 9 Lite, which was unveiled last month, Huawei decided to rename it as Huawei GR5 2017. And this is what we are going to see very soon in Nepal. Huawei Mobile Nepal posted a teaser on their Facebook page about a dual camera phone launching soon. The Huawei GR5 2017 is the same device that was launched as Honor 6X in China few months ago. The phone is also launched recently in few Asian Pacific Countries — Cambodia, Bangladesh and Sri lanka.
Huawei GR5 2017 has an excellent build quality with all metal body and round corners. The phone features a 5.5 inch display with 1080p HD resolution. It has a 2.5D glass on top for better handling of the device. The phone is powered by OctaCoreKirin655 SOC (4 x 2.1GHz + 4 x 1.7GHz). In addition, GR5 2017 has 3GB of RAM giving you a pretty decent performance. It also packs a 32GB storage on board which is expandable up to 128GB.
Talking about the Camera, Huawei GR5 2017 has a dual camera setup on the rear. The dual camera includes a 12MP + 2MP Camera sensor for more depth of field photography. The Front Facing Camera comes with a 8MP sensor with a wide angle lens. In a dual Camera Setup, one camera is used to capture the shots and other is used to capture the depth of field to add bokeh effect of the image. Dual Camera also allows you to focus subject or blur the background after taking photos. We hope Huawei software team has done a great job on camera software to take awesome creamy bokeh photos from Huawei GR5 2017 rear cameras.
While the phone packs a dual Camera setup, it’s quite different from Huawei P9, which has a 12 MP + 12 MP setup. Huawei P9 dual rear camera comes with one RGB sensor and one monochrome sensor, which results great detail photos even in low light. However, GR5 2017 has the same large 1.25μm pixel found on Huawei P9, which will allow you to take cleaner shots even in low light conditions.
The phone contains a 3,340mAhNon Removable battery at the back which gives a good battery backup. It also comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow loaded and EMUI 4.1 on top. Additionally, Huawei GR5 2017 has a fingerprint sensor at the back which provides added security layer for the device. The device measures 150.9 x 76.2 x 8.2 mm in dimension and weighs 162 g.
Huawei GR5 2017 Pricing
While the phone is going to launch soon in Nepal, we are unsure about its pricing. Honor 6X which is the same device named as GR5 2017 is available at 999 Yuan or ~NPR 15,600 in China. But Honor 6x is only available through online, which is why Huawei was able to keep the price low in China.
Here are the pricing of Huawei GR5 2017 on some countries
GR5 2017 price in Cambodia: USD $269 (Approx NPR Rs.29000)
GR5 2017 price in Sri Lanka: LKR 35900 (Approx NPR Rs.26000)

Huawei Mobile Nepal has already given us some hint about the pricing of Huawei GR5 2017. How? Just today, Huawei Mobile Nepal has dropped the price of Huawei P9 lite from Rs.31999 to Rs.28300. So after looking at the price of Huawei GR5 2017 on other countries we guess, Huawei Nepal is planning to launch Huawei GR5 2017 between the price range of 30-35k in Nepal, which is why they might have dropped the price of Huawei P9 Lite today.
