Details that matter.

Watch video

A window on the world

Your mobile's screen is a window to your favourite content: social networks, series, photos.... The Aquaris U2's screen will surprise you with its 2.5D finish, its edges that have been reduced to an absolute minimum and its 5.2 inches in which the pixels shine like never before. Added to this, the protector made of highly resistant glass affords the screen an all-terrain quality.

Redefining long-life

Few smartphones can boast having the Aquaris U2's battery life. Thanks to its 3100 mAh LiPo battery and a careful selection of energy efficient components, you'll get the most out of your Aquaris U2 without having to charge it all the time. However, when a charge is needed the Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 3.0 feature will send the battery level from 0 to 100% in the blink of an eye.

3,2,1… An incredible shot!

There's no need to settle for anything less than an extraordinary shot. With its 13 MP and ultrafast PDAF you'll capture those special moments swiftly and sharply. Even photos in surroundings with varying light levels (such as a sunset) will be authentic works of art thanks to the HDR feature (auto/HDR+).

    Flash frontal

    The front flash provides the touch of light necessary to create great selfies, even at night.

More power and better performance

The 1.4 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 435 octa-core processor seamlessly handles even the most demanding of apps, letting you enjoy your games, social networks and videos or enjoy all the new features that Android 8 Oreo will bring to your Aquaris U2.

With NFC technology and much more

Purchasing is now more convenient with NFC technology: pay securely and easily with your mobile, there's no need for a wallet. What more could one ask? The Aquaris U2 also has Dual Band WiFi (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) for faster connections, Bluetooth 4.2 and a Galileo-compatible navigation system.

Enjoy the purest sound

Appreciate the audio's richness and nuances thanks to the smart amplifier built into the speaker and to the Bluetooth® aptX™ codec, which delivers maximum sound quality to your headphones or wireless speakers.

DMA Control. Quality is the first step

Our DMA Control methodology covers all the development phases of a device (Design, Manufacturing and Assembling) thereby ensuring the quality of our smartphones.


  • herramientas-qfd-diseño-calidad

    Design. Design is not just beauty

    One of the most important phases is that of design. We have more than 100 engineers involved in defining device aesthetics, characteristics, components and the interaction between these. This is the phase that requires the most time and resources, and it is here where we employ QFD tools oriented toward design quality.

  • calidad-control-componentes-smartphones

    Manufacturing. Every component is crucial

    Just as the ingredients are essential for a good dish, so too are the components for the functioning of an electronic device. More than 20 engineers are dedicated to analysing the relationship with our partners, controlling component quality and their manufacturing process by carefully applying the failure mode and effects analysis method.

  • revision-proceso-fabricacion-estandares-calidad

    Assembling. The most important phase

    We supervise the manufacturing process from start to finish so as to ensure that it is carried out in compliance with our stringent quality standards. We use sector-leading machinery and meticulously control every aspect of the process, including apparently trivial ones, such as the soldering temperature used for the components.

  1. 1. The Aquaris U2 have an IP52 rating, which means that, in addition to dust, they are protected from vertically dripping water at a rate of 3-5 mm³ per minute for a maximum of ten minutes. They are not designed to be submerged in water or exposed to pressurised water or other liquids; they are not waterproof. Splash and dust resistance is not permanent and can diminish as a result of normal use. The warranty does not cover damage caused by liquids or exposure to dusty surroundings. Do not attempt to charge the terminal if it is wet.
