The V5 supports LTE-FDD,   WCDMA and the GSM quad-band frequency, dramatically increasing bandwidth capacity   for connection speedsup to 7 times faster than 3G. Powered by a   1.7 GHz 64-bitocta-core processor, this is the most   powerful 4G HaierPhone to date.

 
   

Featuring a high-quality aluminium and glass design, the   7.9mm handset has a premium look.
