Yes, the GR5 is one of the best-selling Huawei smartphones in Bangladesh. Due to the overwhelming demand of the smartphone, a new version of it has recently surfaced. The GR5 2017 is now upgraded to the GR5 Premium Version.

Performance & Hardware

The GR5 2017 Premium Version is powered by an octa-core 2.1 and 1.4GHz processor, coupled with Mali-T830MP2 and whopping 4GB of RAM. Its predecessor contained 3GB RAM. With the Premium Version, the storage space also got an upgrade.

It comes with 64GB of onboard memory, which is further expandable by up to 128GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot.

The GR5 Premium Version is able to handle hefty tasks and multitasking too quite effectively most of the time.

It handled all the basic games well. But, I experienced some lag with graphically intensive games like Asphalt 8: Airborne.


Similar to its predecessor, the GR5 Premium Version sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD Capacitive screen.


The GR5 Premium Version comes with two dual rear cameras, which is really extraordinary for a smartphone. Not many smartphone brands produced handsets with two dual rear cameras.

The smartphone boasts two dual rear cameras with 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. Furthermore, there’s an 8-megapixel camera on the front.


The 3340 mAh Li-ion battery inside the GR5 Premium Version gives you amazing battery life. Rough usage can you through a day easily.


The retailing price of the GR5 Premium Version is 27,900 taka.
