Huawei Philippines has made the Huawei Mate 9 and Huawei GR5 2017 official in the Philippines. Both announced late last year, the Huawei Mate 9 is the company’s first 2017 smartphone offering. It is the successor to 2015’s Mate 8. Major upgrades are too many to mention but highlight features are the dual Leica co-engineered lens which is also present on the P9.

The Huawei GR5 2017 was also known as the Huawei Mate 9 Lite on other regions. According to our friends from Huawei PH, the decision to stick with GR5 branding is the success of the first GR5 last year. The 2017 model also got a dual camera set up but no Leica branding.
