Huawei GR3 2017 now in stores for Php8,990

Huawei has released the GR3 (2017) in the Philippines over the week-end without much funfare. The Huawei GR3 2017 is also known as the Nova Lite, Honor 8 Lite or the Huawei P10 Lite in other countries.

The device is a low-mid ranger smartphone that looks very promising under Php10k. The design and specs are pretty close to the Huawei GR5 2017 with a Php2k price difference.


Huawei GR3 (2017) specs:
5.2-inch IPS LCD @ 1920×1080 pixels
HiSilicon Kirin 655 octa-core processor
4 x ARM Cortex A53 2.1GHz + 4 x ARM Cortex A53 1.7GHz
Mali-T830 MP2 graphics
16GB internal storage
Expandable via microSD, up to 128GB
12-megapixel autofocus rear camera w/ LED flash
8-megapixel front-facing camera
Dual SIM
Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n
Bluetooth 4.1
Fingerprint scanner
3,000mAh Li-Ion battery
Android 7.0 Nougat w/ EMUI 5.0

The Huawei GR3 2017 is available in stores (we specifically saw it at Villman) for Php9,990.

Updated: According to Huawei PH, the SRP should be Php8,990. According to a reader below that bought one from MemoXpress, the cash price is Php8,990 as well. It looks like some stores, like Villman, are giving the non-cash (credit card?) price.

    Isn’t this one prices at 8990?

  6. Mark says:

    Cash price is 8990 at MemoXpress. Currently on PROMO Price for Cash and 3 months Card.
    Just got this one for my dad.

    Screen is really crisp 1080×1920. Very premium for a low price I must say.

  7. Kenny says:

    At this price point I would expect an MP3 GPU, not MP2. Phone would suffer when playing graphics-hungry games.

    waiting for a hands-on review first.

    Is this better than Xiaomi note 4x?
    Planning on buying phone next month. :)

    • el gato says:

      xiaomi note 4x has sd625 and should be better in cpu/gpu but is subpar on camera and screen as other users say.
      other sd 625 phones are sold nprth of 18k.

    • what really holds me from buying xiaomi products aside from that fact that there is currently no service centers present in the country is slow or no OS updates in some cases, like my Mi Pad which is stuck in Kitkat. but im impressed with the quality of their products, after almost 2 years my Mi Pad still works like the day i bought it.

  10. markie mark says:

    i read somewhere that huawei’s marketing head mismo ang nagsabi na 8990 lang etong g3. villman is overpricing.

  11. el gato says:

    the article should also be updated to reflect 3k price difference from previous 2k (between gr5 2017 @11990php and gr3 2017 @8900php) …
    mas mahal kadalasan ang villman pagdating sa pc parts.. ewan ko lang sa phone kung sumusunod sila sa srp… ????

  12. considering the 3k price difference, which is a better buy, this or the GR5?

  13. mary11 says:

    which is a better buy GR5 2017 or GR3 2017? Can you help me decide which phone I’m going to get.

  14. kyle says:

    in case you havent noticed, this actually has slightly better specs than the huawei p9 lite,
    at almost 4k off.
    probably the reason why the gr5 2017 got a price cut but not the p9 lite.

    got my Huawei GR3 2017 last two weeks ago, i must say it is one of the best phones for its price range and for 9k offering nougat, great deal indeed, the only downslide for this is the16gb rom but expanding with a m-sd should do it, a BIG THUMBS UP FOR HUAWEI GR3

  16. John says:

    Please make a review.

  17. John says:

    Per Gsmarena, storage should be expandable up to 256GB and not 128GB.

  18. deku says:

    Tanong ko lang po kung may gyroscope po ba ang gr3 2017? Kasi sa gsm arena, walang nakalagay, pero sa ibang sites, meron.

  19. Amanda Gonzales says:

    Dual active po ba sim nito? ty

  20. Lourdes says:

    How can I transfer file to SD from internal?

  21. akobudoy says:

    7990 na lang sya ngayon sa Villman.

  22. Duks says:

    Is the huawei gr3 metal frame?

    Wala po NFC or baka iba ang tawag…
