A great big screen

Move up to the 5.5" class, to a screen that has it all. The 2.5D curved glass unites with the vibrant and lifelike colours, FHD resolution and 525 nits of brightness to offer you the best multimedia experience yet, while NEG Dinorex technology affords the screen exceptional protection against knocks and scratches. And with the multi-window feature that lets you have two apps open at the same time, you won't miss a detail.

Metal is its signature feature

Metal is stylish and denotes character, which is why it's the signature feature of the V range. The anodised aluminium hugs the device accentuating its contours, melding with the fingerprint scanner and providing unprecedented strength. Every detail is meticulously designed, like the shape of the flash, the ring that surrounds and protects the camera or the curvature of the metal.

A camera that defies the conventional

We know that your mobile has turned into your camera, that's why it's one of our priorities. The Aquaris V Plus' 12 MP Big Pixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture snaps top quality photos under any condition, and its ultrafast focus with PDAF technology makes it near impossible to take a bad shot.

Big Pixel: size matters

In photography, pixel size, not number, makes all the difference: the bigger the pixel, the more light the sensor can gather thus producing a better quality image, be it night or day. The 1.25 um pixel size helps reduce the photo capture time and affords rich contrasts and backlit shots.

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 V Plus 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.
  2. 2. Among other factors, battery life depends on network settings, location, signal intensity, installed firmware version, customisation of settings and the manner in which the device is used. The results reported are based on the profile of an average user as established by BQ, and the battery tests have been carried out with specific BQ devices. Results obtained under different conditions may vary. The battery has a limited number of charge cycles and may need to be replaced after a certain amount of time. Its duration and number of charge cycles will vary according to usage and setting values.
  3. 3. 50% charge in 44 minutes. The charging process was performed at a temperature of 25°C using a QC3.0 charger. The device used was new, turned off and had a totally flat battery (battery at 0%). Variations in the described conditions of the charging process may produce different results.

* BQ device specifications may vary depending on the country/market.
