BQ Aquaris U, the appeal without dressing

They do not offer too many boasting none of the three models in the range BQ Aquaris U, that you have all the details on this same link.

BQ has wanted to bring to the market the best smartphones that can manufacture below 200 euros, improving materials already in economic range and betting in a way clear by metal and a novel Dinorex Crystal, coming to eat part of the cake of Gorilla Glass and DragonTrail.

Proven efficiency chipsets such as the Snapdragon 425 and 430 of Qualcomm will encourage a panel on three models of 5 inches and HD resolution 720 p, demure but chord, and that will bring good experience without greater numbers and high power SoCs.

A step back to take momentum

After venturing more pretentious smartphones, the truth is that BQ too well not has done when he has wanted to raise price and specifications the terminals, by what his new strategy with the range Aquaris U could reportale again a good level of sales to take impulse.

We already know that the high range is a reserved field, and compete there is a reckless given the high costs and the impact that have the markings of the giants of the industry.

Moreover, middle range and mid/high range are increasingly tight with smartphones offering for 300 or 400 euros a user experience similar to the best smartphones on the market, so that Enter here to compete with Chinese manufacturers as Huawei, Honor, Oppo or the own Xiaomi is also extremely difficult.

Perhaps many look them so step back Bq, but surely the return to the origins with focus on cheaper smartphones is the most successful to return to the path of success and win time, while the guys at the Spanish firm study the way to attack the more complicated part of Android, where is the so-called ‘super middle range’.

It has not been easy the last year for BQ, with the turbulent situation with employees or terminals that have not finished boot on the market, but seem to have very clear as a return to positive news in Madrid, and we are happy to see that a Spanish manufacturer is able to compete well in the complicated world of smartphones.

The market will issue a ruling, but These Aquaris U are running back to catch impulse. And you, do new BQ smartphones appear?
