    At BQ, we guarantee one Android version change (major upgrade) for all our smartphones. We are so committed to our update policy that we even send out two major upgrades when this is technically possible, something quite unusual in this sector. Such is the case with the Aquaris M5, which was released with Android 5.1 Lollipop, then updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and finally, it will be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat.


    The second version change is always more difficult because the greater the amount of time between the design and development of a model and the arrival of a new version, the greater the complexity of the process of integrating the hardware with the new firmware. Consequently, Android 7.0 Nougat will not be ready for the Aquaris M5 during Q2 as we had initially planned, however, we are continuing to work on delivering it to your devices as soon as possible. We'll keep you posted.

    Guess I should have bought a Motorola G4. They got 7.0 ages ago and will also get 8.0.
  • Hello, it has been 2 months since we last received any notice, has a new target date been set? Thank you

    They are almost to release the new firmware or they don't read the forum.
