|OS version||Android OS v5.1 (Lollipop)|
|CPU||Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53|
The Tecno W5 comes with Android OS v5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box, but it is upgradable to the next OS. Android is closely integrated with various Google services, such as Google Maps, Gmail, and Google Drive, which makes it easy for users to access and manage their data across multiple devices. The W5 has a Mediatek MT6735 CPU. This mid-range, quad-core CPU is capable of delivering fast and efficient performance for a wide range of tasks.
The W5 utilizes Mali-T720 MP2 GPU. A GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is a specialized chip that is primarily designed to handle and accelerate the processing of graphics and visual data. It is responsible for rendering images, videos, and animations on a smartphone screen. ARM Mali GPUs are widely used in mobile devices and have a good reputation for performance and power efficiency. They offer competitive performance and power efficiency, making them suitable for a range of applications, including gaming, multimedia, and user interface rendering.
|Screen size||5.5 inch|
|Resolution||720 x 1280 px|
The 5.5 inch phone comes with IPS display. The IPS display provides enhanced features, such as optimal viewing angles, color accuracy, invariable color reproduction and better power consumption. The 5.5 inch display make this smartphone pocket-friendly. The size of the screen is measured diagonally, from corner to corner. A larger screen typically requires more power to illuminate, which can impact battery life. The display of Tecno W5 is multitouch capable. Multitouch technology enables the device's touchscreen to detect and interpret multiple touch points on the screen simultaneously.
|Internal storage||16 GB|
|Memory card slot||microSD|
1 GB of RAM is not typically considered to be enough for a smartphone. Most smartphones today come with at least 3 GB or 4 GB of RAM, and some high-end devices have even more. Having more RAM alone does not necessarily guarantee better performance, and other factors such as the processor and storage speed can also impact overall performance. 32 GB of internal storage is generally considered to be the minimum amount of storage you would want in a smartphone. The W5 has only 16 GB of internal storage. The internal storage of the W5 (16 GB) can be expanded with a compatible microSD card. A microSD card is a type of small, removable flash memory card used to store digital information.
|Main camera||13 MP, 4160 x 3120 px, autofocus|
|Selfie camera||5 MP|
The W5 offers only a single-camera setup. The single camera can still be sufficient for many smartphone users, depending on their photography needs and preferences. The main camera of the W5 is equipped with autofocus. An autofocus (or AF) optical system uses a sensor, a control system and a motor to focus on an automatically or manually selected point or area. Very few Android cameras come without autofocus. The W5 does not have optical image stabilization (OIS). OIS technology is more commonly found in higher-end smartphones and is designed to reduce camera shake and blur, resulting in sharper and clearer images and videos.
|GSM 2G bands||900 / 1800|
|Network coverage||2G / 3G|
|Wi-Fi||Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n|
|Headphone||3.5 mm jack|
The Tecno W5 supports 2G and 3G networks only. 3G is obsolete now, because most phones can use 4G and 5G networks. The Tecno W5 like all modern smartphones, is capable of connecting to Wi-Fi networks. Wi-Fi networks use radio waves to transmit data between devices and a wireless access point, which is typically connected to a wired network and serves as a hub for wireless devices to connect to the internet or other networks.
With Bluetooth connectivity, you can connect your W5 smartphone to a wide range of Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, speakers, smartwatches, fitness trackers, and more. This phone has a built-in GPS. GPS is a highly accurate navigation system using signals from satellites to determine a location on the Earth's surface, irrespective of weather conditions. Most phones have a GPS unit on board.
The W5 isn't NFC (Near Field Communication) capable. NFC is not essential for basic phone functionality, but it can be useful for a variety of tasks and features. The W5 phone has built-in FM radio receiver. FM radio allows users to tune in to local radio stations and listen to live broadcasts, news, music, and other content. The W5 has a microUSB port. MicroUSB is a type of USB connector that was commonly used on older smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. The W5 smartphone has a 3.5 mm headphone jack. A 3.5 mm headphone jack is a small round port, that allows you to connect wired headphones or earphones to the device.
|Type||Li-Ion 3000 mAh, non-removable|
The Li-Ion 3000 mAh, non-removable battery gives the smartphone a good battery backup. The Li-ion is a low maintenance battery which offers high energy, is lightweight and does not require periodic full discharge. The battery of W5 isn't removable without voiding the warranty.
|Sensors||accelerometer, fingerprint, light, proximity|
|Specials||Dual SIM, HiOS|
Smartphones today come with a wealth of sensors to facilitate a better user experience. The accelerometer provides information about the smartphone's movement in three axes: X (horizontal), Y (vertical), and Z (depth). The W5 phone has a fingerprint scanner. This sensor identifies and authenticates the fingerprints of an individual in order to grant or deny access to a smartphone. This Tecno phones come with proximity sensor. This proximity sensor detects how close the phone is to an outside object, such as your ear.
The ambient light sensor detects the level of ambient light in the surrounding environment. The main purpose of a light sensor in a smartphone is to automatically adjust the brightness of the device's display. The Dual SIM capability of Tecno W5 phone is ideal for businesses wishing to provide staff with a mobile device that can offer separate numbers and bills for both personal and business use.
