    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 X5, 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 X5 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.

    In which Q android 7 firmware is supposed to be released?
  • If Nougat would be cancelled will BQ offer Aquaris X5 users a discount for a new device (>Android 6)?
