Earlier than expected! In contrary to what Huawei Philippines announced during the Mate 8 launch, the much awaited Huawei GR5 is now available in stores. As a matter of fact, me and Raffy of techpatrlnews saw a live unit at SM Megamall Cyberzone yesterday.

In case you missed it, the Huawei GR5 is exactly the same with the highly acclaimed Honor 5X internationally. It features premium build and design that reminds me of a combined Honor 6 Plus and Huawei G8 look with fingerprint sensor at the back.
