Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t buy an impressive smartphone and the new Huawei GR5 fits the bill with top-line features offered for less than $400.
Huawei’s GR5 (it was called the Honor 6X in other countries) has a 5.5-inch full high definition screen and a smooth uni-body design.
The device has inherited some premium features from Huawei’s flagship models including a dual lens camera and a fingerprint reader.
In fact, it’s the first dual lens camera on the market available for less than $400.
The 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel rear cameras combine to autofocus in just 0.3 seconds as well as achieving depth of fields shots, portraits with Bokeh effects and wide angle shots.
There’s also an 8-megapixel front-facing selfie camera.
Huawei’s GR5 is powered by the Kirin 655 octa-core processor and has 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory with a microSD card slot to expand the storage.
On the battery side, the GR5 has a 3340mAh battery that is actually bigger than many flagship devices and will give users one and half days on a single charge.
The Huawei GR5 will go on sale on April 12 for $399 from Vodafone.
It will available through other retailers in May/June.
