Do you remember the M range of BQ? The Spanish manufacturer introduced in early 2015 three devices intended for the mid-range and medium-high. Three phones that featured the most powerful phone, the BQ Aquaris M5.5. A smartphone with big screen and specifications that place it above the midrange.
The case is that BQ seems ready to relaunch this smartphone that saw the light in 2015. So said and done: say hello to the BQ Aquaris M 2017 . A phone that is exactly the same as it came out in 2015, but that comes updated with Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Do not expect many more changes, because there are not.
BQ Aquaris M 2017, datasheet and specifications
- 5.5 “IPS Full HD screen with Full HD resolution (400 ppi)

As you can see, the specifications do not change with respect to the version we saw in 2015. The specifications are identical, only minor details such as weight change . The technical sheet remains the same as the one we saw two years ago. Something that is not at all bad, actually.
These specifications, although they have remained small, are still competent today . A phone with these pieces can continue to run smoothly today. If you’re not looking for the latest in the latest, it’s an option to keep in mind if you need a lot of battery or a big screen. Although it is reprehensible that only they have updated it to Marshmallow, not to Nougat.
In any case, the price has also fallen. The new price is 179.90€ for the version with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. The version with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory rises to 219.90 €.
