Dual band, dual display HT transceiver. Since its introduction the UV-5R has seen a massive success, thanks to its performance and price.

There are several cosmetic variants of the UV-5R. These variants have no differences from the UV-5R besides their cosmetic design along with the possible removal of the 'Band Key' (no longer required in Gen. 2).

Variations include the: UV-5R v2+, UV-5RA, UV-5RE, UV-5R+ (Plus), along with several other lesser produced variants. Some of these variations may also no longer work with case specific accessories such as the original UV-5R batteries.
