The Tecno W5 also known as Tecno W5 4G LTE and its twin variant the Tecno W5 Lite are the the latest addition to the W series with both devices bearing a striking resemblance to their predecessor the Tecno W4, the difference between the two variants is the presence of Finger print sensor and of-course a fast 4G LTE on the Tecno w5. So far we have seen the likes of Tecno W2Tecno W3. Recal that Tecno W4 was the first Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered phone by the Tech Giants in relation to that few anticipated that the Tecno W5 may follow suite since the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS has already been rolled out, instead the device will be running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but the good news is that lots of hardware upgrade has accompanied it.

The smartphone features a poly-carbonate plastic body with metal frame with a finger print scanner. The Tecno W5 smartphone measures 153.2 x 76.4 x 7.8mm. It is a mid-range smartphone featuring a 5.5 inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixels screen resolution. its comes in the colors of black and white and Gold.
