Honor 5X Hits Canada As The Huawei GR5

Huawei’s Honor 5X is without a doubt one of the best mid-range Android devices on the market today, but it has only launched a few regions so far. Now it adds one more area to that list, Canada, but under a new name, the Huawei GR5.

In the US the Honor 5X is seen as a new brand as Huawei’s brand is almost completely unknown here. However in Canada, the company does offer several of its devices, so rebranding the device makes sense for this release. Under the hood everything is identical with the same camera, processor, and display.



Huawei GR5 is the combination of having the best value accompanied with the latest technology. It features a simple and elegant aluminum alloy body design, 5.5-inch FHD screen, large battery for more power, and a 13MP rear camera with 5MP front camera (88º wide angle lens). Comparable to the more premium smartphones, Huawei GR5 uses an octa-core processor, has a fingerprint sensor and improved perfection on photography.

Rogers will be offering the Huawei GR5 for free with a two-year contract and for that, it’s certainly worth your attention.
