The BQ Aquaris A4.5 will be the first smartphone from the manufacturer to formally launch in Spain and Portugal. The 4.5-inch smartphones comes with a quad-core MediaTek SoC and 1 GB RAM.

Google announced its Android One program last year in an attempt to introduce an inexpensive reference design for growing markets such as Indonesia. The goal, according to Google, is to make affordable and well-made entry-level smartphones to expand the Android brand in select regions. Turkey was recently added to the program as a key location.

Unfortunately, the Android One program has not met expectations from both Google and its partners. The search giant relaunched the program last month to include more regions in Europe. One of Google's partners for the program is Spanish company BQ, who will be releasing the Aquaris A4.5 smartphone for 170 Euros and 180 Euros in Portugal and Spain, respectively. The Aquaris A4.5 is based on the existing Aquaris A5 in terms of specifications and features, albeit at a smaller screen size.

Core features for the Aquaris A4.5 include:

  • Quad-core 1 GHz MediaTek MT6735M SoC
  • ARM Mali-T720 MP1 GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 16 GB eMMC w/ MicroSD support
  • Dual-SIM (Micro-SIM), Micro-USB w/ OTG, 3.5 mm audio

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
