It was never easier to take incredible photos.

The back camera of Aquaris X5 Plus includes absolutely everything you need to take photos like a professional in the easiest possible way. With 16 MP, a Sony IMX298 sensor, 6 Largan lens, and an f/2.0 aperture, you can take any picture at a maximum level of detail and definition. Plus, we are going to make it even easier for you with Dual Tone Flash that adjusts different combinations of flash depending on the subject to get the best result in each photo.

No matter what the picture.

Take photos worthy of framing in any situation. In variable lighting environments, such as a sunset landscape, the auto HDR (High Dynamic Range) improves the method and processing of the colour to add more dynamic range. In addition, the Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) makes the focus response time quicker than ever for motion.


  • modo manual

    Shoot in manual mode. Let your creativity fly.

    We have redesigned the application to offer you the best possible manual adjustments with parameters such as exposure time, focus, and ISO settings. You can also save your pictures in RAW format to retouch them in your favourite editor without losing a single detail.

  • selfies

    Your selfies, impeccable.

    When taking photos with the front camera, the Face Beauty mode* smooths and tones the faces it detects achieving a uniform and impeccable result. In addition, the Selfie Indicator function shows you in which direction you need to look to come out looking towards the camera.

  • Nocturno

    Night photos.

    You can now develop your photographic talent in environments with very little light. In Night Mode, the camera takes three photos and an algorithm analyses and combines them to reduce the noise and improve their sharpness and light.

Your moments in 4K.

4K quality is a graphic resolution with nearly 9 million resolution pixels; that is four times greater than Full HD. With this, you can capture each picture in the maximum level of detail. Any gesture, concert, hug, sunset, or jump into a swimming pool converts into a memorable audio-visual recording with which you can relive your best moments.


  • estabilizador de video

    Video stabilizer*.

    The video stabilizing technology by Vidhance reduces the effect of unintentional motion to take more stable images. So that you don´t lose a second of action.

  • Slow motion

    Slow motion and fast motion.

    You can now record videos in slow motion up to 120 fps (frames per second) with 720 pixel resolution*. Alternatively, use the fast motion mode to speed-up your favourite videos.

  • Time lapse

    Time lapse.

    A sunset? Your favourite city at rush hour? The tide coming in? Try capturing scenes in time lapse mode and create motion clips of great beauty.

Millions of pixels shining in your hands.

Every detail comes to life on your screen, sharper, brighter, and more intense than ever. With Full HD, 440 PPI and 620 nit brightness, the colours are vibrant even in broad daylight. Plus, thanks to its wide angle vision, from whichever way you look at it. Not only that, these high brightness levels use up very little battery and we are keeping our Quantum Colour + technology. But the Aquaris X5 Plus screen is also brilliant in other ways. Such as its efficient energy use, its high resistance to impact and scratches with its chemical-strengthened NEG Dinorex glass, its pleasant feel, and latest anti-fingerprint treatment.

Snapdragon™ 652, the 600 series reinvented.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 652 is a unique piece of engineering with a spectacular performance and low energy consumption. Up to 1.8 GHz octa-core CPU powering the graphics and multimedia experience without sacrificing battery life. Thanks to big.LITTLE technology, the processor carries out an optimized use of the number of cores depending on the requirement of tasks, thereby improving battery management. The Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU, available from 510 up to 550 MHz, provides top-of-the range quality graphics: empowering the Full HD experience and making even the more demanding screens such as video games extraordinary fluid. Videos, multitasking, games, photography...enjoy the most demanding tasks with a processor that takes the concept of efficient performance to full power.

And now...more secure with a fingerprint scanner.

How many times do you unblock your screen? You can now do this much quicker with what is, quite literally, at your fingertips: your own fingerprint. The fingerprint scanner opens the door to new security features so you can protect the content of your Aquaris X5 Plus easily and put an end to remembering passwords.

A battery that meets expectations.

We are renowned for our efficient battery life and the new Aquaris X5 Plus is not going to let you down with its ultra-capacity LiPo 3,200 mAh battery. The most incredible thing is, how can a device only 7.7 mm thick and barely weighing 146g have this level of battery life? The answer can be found in its meticulous mechanical design using a selection of low consumption components.

High fidelity audio on your smartphone.

Your smartphone is going to accompany you in great moments of your life and now you can enjoy them in high fidelity. We have integrated an intelligent amplifier chip (Smart PA) to optimise the performance of the speakers depending on the content to be reproduced. In this way, you will able to turn the volume up higher without generating distortion and maintaining high fidelity. In addition, we are committed to Dolby decoder technology, leaders in audio for entertainment.

    NFC Connectivity.

    With Near Field Communication (NFC) technology you can add new features to your smartphone and make payments by just bringing your phone close to a sales terminal in stores.

  • Wi-fi

    Wi-Fi Dual Band.

    Aquaris X5 Plus has Wi-Fi Dual Band technology meaning that it uses a Wi-Fi antenna that transmits two frequency bands: one a 2.4 GHz and for greater performance another at 5 GHz.

  • dual Sim

    Dual SIM Dual Standby.

    You can have two different lines with your Aquaris X5 Plus, even with different operators. We have included two nano-SIM card slots in the same tray to take full advantage of the internal space of the device.

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.

  • pruebas-confirmar-estandares-calidad

    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.

  • calidad-control-componentes-smartphones

    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.
