According to this post on Huawei’s Facebook page, the price cut is supposed to be a limited offer. But a private message from the company clarifies that the price drop is permanent. This makes the Huawei GR5 2017 cheaper than other midrange devices, such as the OPPO F1s and the Vivo V5, which both sell for P12,990 ($259).
And if you’re after something that will let you add bokeh or background blur to your photos, then this — not the other previously mentioned handsets — is the mid-end phone for you, thanks to the two cameras on its back.

Known as the Honor 6x in the international market, the GR5 2017 is powered by Huawei’s own Kirin 655 octa-core chip and sports a 5.5-inch full-HD screen, an 8-megapixel front camera, a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a non-removable 3,340mAh battery. It’s running an older EMUI 4.1 overlay over Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but is getting an update to Android Nougat and the new EMUI 5.0 this year.
Take note that the version being sold in the Philippines is the variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which you can still expand with a microSD card of up to 128GB.
