HD IPS screen. Small, but perfectly formed

The bq Maxwell 2 Plus’s HD IPS screen brings images to life. Colours are brighter and more vibrant, with intense contrast and amazing definition. And unlike other screens, the richness of the colours is not the result of over-saturation, which intensifies tones artificially; rather, it’s due to the technology and high resolution of the Plus’s HD IPS screen. Text is more clearly defined while respecting the original tones, and videos and photos are so incredibly sharp it’s just like real life!

No blind spots

Some LCD screens have a highly reduced viewing angle, meaning content can only be seen when you are front-on. With IPS technology, however, IPS screens boast a viewing angle of 178°, which allows you to interact with the tablet from almost any position.


The panoramic 16:10 format offers the best multimedia experience. Videos make full use of the space available and are shown using the whole screen, with no black bands at the edges.

Internal memory

More speed with eMMC

We've improved the performance of the bq Maxwell 2 PLus with the new eMMC internal memory. This new type of memory means your CPU does less work, as the memory takes care of managing storage by itself. This allows the CPU to focus on other tasks, which in turn improves the general performance of the tablet.


Optimised central and graphics processors

The Maxwell 2's processors are optimised for high performance. Although this may sound simple, in reality this affects all aspects of your interaction with the tablet. Response time is minimised, Internet browsing is faster and multimedia playback is smoother. Plus, its Mali 400 GPU can run at speeds of up to 400 Mhz, enabling a more fluid gaming experience with even the most demanding games.

4,300 mAh battery with energy savings

Long live your battery!

4,300 mAh battery

A high-performance CPU and GPU means more energy consumption. That's why the bq Maxwell 2 Plus has a 4300 mAh battery that can keep up with the performance and offers you longer battery life.

Energy-saving mode

The new energy-saving mode for bq tablets has been designed from scratch by our team of Spanish engineers. Because the objective is to optimise battery life, we've dynamically reduced processor performance in order to prevent unnecessary levels of power usage on things like browsing simple websites, listening to music and reading. With this mode activated, and display brightness reduced, you can extend your battery life by 20-25%.

OTA and operating system

Total integration

The automatic update system for the bq Maxwell 2 Plus has been designed from scratch by bq. This system, OTA (Over The Air), alerts the user when a new update becomes available and allows them to install it directly onto their tablets. And as the updates for our devices are also developed by bq’s team of engineers, total integration between OTA updates and firmware is assured.

Only the essencial apps

The operating system used for bq tablets only includes the fundamental apps. That’s why we don’t include apps that consume resources and that are not useful. The rest, is your call.

Android 4.1

The operating system used by the Maxwell 2 Plus is Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which offers improved response, optimised scrolling between screens and apps and more fluid interaction with your tablet.

Who was James Clerk Maxwell?

“The work of James Clerk Maxwell changed the world forever”. Albert Einstein.

Edinburgh (Scotland), 13 June 1831
Cambridge (England), 5 November 1879

Maxwell achieved what is considered the second great unification in physics. He collated all the theories, experiments and laws that had been formulated to date on electricity, magnetism and optics and created a single, unified theory demonstrating that electricity, magnetism and light are all manifestations of the same phenomenon: the electromagnetic field.



Bluetooth is the quickest and easiest way to share files between two devices. Simply activate Bluetooth on both devices, select (on your tablet) the device you want to synchronise with, and send your files directly – all in a matter of seconds!


The bq Maxwell 2 Plus’s Micro-USB OTG port lets you attach peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard or speakers, adding another dimension to interaction with your tablet.


If you need to display your photos or videos in a larger size, or if you want to play games on a big screen, you can connect your bq Maxwell 2 Plus to your TV using an HDMI cable. The Plus boasts Dual HD HDMI technology, meaning you can seee image displayed at the same time on the TV screen and on the tablet.
