It’s late for introductions today. Samsung’s new 3D LED cinema screen is joined by a Spanish manufacturer. We are talking about BQ that has just presented the BQ Aquaris VS and the BQ Aquaris VS Plus, two devices that come on the market to compete in the mid-range of the sector.
Both terminals, which are now part of the Spanish manufacturer’s V family, stand out for their metal chassis that gives the BQ Aquaris VS and the BQ Aquaris VS Plus a very premium look and feel, as well as technical characteristics that will meet the expectations of any user.
BQ Aquaris VS
The BQ Aquaris VS is the decaffeinated version of the new VS presented. We are talking about a phone that has a polycarbonate body with aluminium finishes to give it a touch and a noble look, ideal if you are looking for a medium range phone with a Premium design.
Its screen is made up of a 5.2 inch LCD panel that reaches HD resolution and Dinorex Crystal to avoid unnecessary scratches. To bring the BQ Aquaris VS to life, the design team has opted for one of Qualcomm’s best-known mid-range solutions. We are talking about the Cortex A53 1.4 GHz eight-core Cortex A53 Snapdragon 430 processor with an Adreno 505 GPU and 3 GB RAM or 4 GB RAM depending on the model.
Say that the version with 3GB of RAM has 32GB of storage while the most vitamin-rich model has, in addition to the 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. Both versions of the BQ Aquaris VS have micro SD slots for memory expansion.
Photographs taken with the V family of BQ are usually one of their strong points and this new phone was not going to be an exception. In this way, the main camera of the BQ Aquaris VS has a 12 megapixel lens formed by a Sony IMX386 sensor of 12 megapixels with focal aperture f/2.0 and the possibility of capturing photos in RAW format.
As for the front camera of the BQ Aquaris VS has an 8 megapixel lens with the same f/2.0 focal aperture and signed by Samsung. Finally to say that this phone, which arrives with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, although it will soon be updated to Oreo, has a battery of 3,100 mAh, more than enough to support all the hardware weight of the new BQ phone.
You can now buy both versions of the BQ Aquaris VS at a price of 179.90 euros for the model with 3 GB and 199.90 euros for the version with 4 GB of RAM memory.
BQ Aquaris VS Plus
The most complete version of the new BQ aquaris VS, the Plus model, differs from the conventional model in that it has a larger screen. In this case, we find a 5.5-inch IPS panel which in this case achieves a Full HD resolution.
The rest of the specifications are the same: same processor and GPU, although in this case we have only one 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The other big difference between the BQ Aquaris VS and BQ Aquaris VS Plus will be seen on your battery. The autonomy of the Aquaris VS Plus increases to 3,400 mAh to compensate for the size of your screen.
