Mr Leo Jiang, the Managing Director, Devices of Huawei Nigeria, said the new Huawei GR5 Mini Smartphone has been designed with long-lasting battery, up to 32 hours for hard users, to eliminate use of power bank.
Speaking at the launch of the phone in Lagos on Saturday, Jiang said that the phone had been equipped with a 3000mAh battery life, owing to the electricity situation in Nigeria.
mAh means milliamp Hour and is a unit that measures (electric) power over time. It is commonly used to measure the energy capacity of a battery; generally, the more mAh, the longer the battery capacity. ”The phone’s 3000mAh battery with intelligent power saving technology allows the battery last for as long as two days without charging for light users, and 32 hours for hard users,” he said.

He said that GR5 Mini had a sensor that performed in 0.5 seconds and had 360 degree readability, builds on Huawei’s success in delivering powerful high end Smartphone with a high level quality.
”Bound to be a delight for photo and self-lovers, the Huawei GR5 Mini has an 8MP front camera, with high chromatic resolution, 4P lens array and a 77 degree wide angle visual range. “It takes sharp looking self and also allows self-lovers to capture more people in the shot.
