Unlocked smartphone

A smartphone offering total freedom

Because the bq Aquaris 5 is fully unlocked, it’s compatible with the SIM cards of any service provider. No minimum tariffs, contracts or terms: you’re free to choose whichever company suits you best. And when you want to change, you can move to another service provider without having to unlock your phone. Now that’s freedom!

Quad Core CPU

Cortex A7 Quad Core CPU up to 1.2 GHz. More power, less consumption

The Cortex A7 Quad Core processor, running at up to 1.2 GHz, is the perfect combination of power and intelligent energy consumption. Its low-consumption architecture helps prolong battery life, while its four cores provide an incredibly fast interface and optimised multi-tasking management. Video playback is amazingly fluid, and even the most demanding apps open smoothly. But when you use your bq Aquaris 5 for undemanding tasks, the processor only uses the cores it really needs, meaning less energy is consumed.

5”, 178° IPS screen

5 inches. A screen that really measures up

Rich, vibrant, intense colours: that’s what you get with a IPS screen. With superior resolution, contrast and brightness compared to other LCD screens. Tones are free from chromatic distortion and appear neither washed-out nor artificially saturated. Its resolution and 5-inch screen ensures spectacular results. Videos look real, photos are displayed down to the tiniest detail and viewing websites has never been more comfortable. And screen content is visible from any position, thanks to the 178-degree viewing angle. Truly, a complete experience.

2200 mAh battery

Long live your smartphone!

A Quad Core processor, a 5-inch IPS screen and a PowerVR Series5 SGX graphics processor running at up to 300 MHz need a battery that can keep up; a battery that allows you to enjoy your smartphone for hours upon end; like the 2,200 mAh battery in the bq Aquaris 5. Enjoy more hours of networking on Facebook™ and Twitter™, chatting with your groups on Whatsapp™, marathon phonecalls and those endless “no, you hang up!” conversations without having to constantly recharge your mobile.

Up to 8 hours of streaming
Up to 6 hours of browsing
Up to 10 hours of phone conversation*

Dual SIM

Dual SIM. Advanced simplicity

The bq Aquaris 5 can take two SIM cards. This means you can use it simultaneously with two different phone numbers, and even two different service providers. Its intuitive interface allows you to choose which of the two numbers you prefer to use for browsing, calling or sending messages. You can even configure the phone so that you can receive calls on both numbers or, temporarily, just on one number.

Operating system

Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, greater fluidity

Improved control gestures

Swipe a finger down the screen of your bq Aquaris to display the notifications bar, or swipe with two fingers to display the Quick Settings panel.

Widgets on the lock screen

You can place your favourite widgets on the lock screen and access them directly without having to enter your security code.

Gesture Typing Keyboard

Android 4.2 incorporates the Gesture Typing Keyboard as standard allowing you to write by swiping your finger across the screen.

OTA | Apps

Only the essential apps

bq devices only include those essential apps to ensure you can use your smartphone straight out of the box. We don’t add apps that consume resources and you have no use for. The rest is up to you.


bq smartphones are updated OTA (Over The Air). The device lets you know when a new firmware update is available and lets you install it directly from the smartphone. And because the OTA system and the updates are both developed by bq’s team of engineers, they’re fully integrated with the phone’s firmware.
