Android One Envoy BQ Aquaris A4.5 Arrives in Europe

Android One is making its way into Europe. That’s great news for the people who have waited for Google’s Android One initiative for a long time. The roll-out is in its nascent stages, with one particular phone entering Spain and Portugal: the BQ Aquaris A4.5

Supported by a dual-SIM set-up with 4G LTE, it sports a 4.5-inch screen with a Dragontail protective finish. Under the hood, there is a MediaTek MT6735M chipset, 1 GHz Quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. The storage is 16GB, with a micro-USB slot allowing it to expand up to 64GB.Android one, Europe, portugal, spainAs for other specifications, the BQ Aquaris A4.5 has an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front shooter. The battery life is considerably good at 2,470 mAh, and the operating system is the latest Android Lollipop 5.1.1.

Android One has a great market presence in South East Asia – especially Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the Philippines – since it provides good quality hardware at economical prices. However, it’s the other way around in Europe, where it is launching the device at a higher price despite the fact that it hasn’t done very well in Turkey.

The BQ Aquaris A4.5 is priced at €169.90 in Spain and €179.90 in Portugal.

We hope they do well in the new venture!
