BQ Aquaris VS is coming this Valentine – Review, Full Specs and Price

BQ is getting ready to release the BQ Aquaris VS on the 14th of February. It looks like a midrange smartphone, but there’s a much expensive version with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage space. The simple device will be very affordable when launched, as we know BQ smartphones are always budget friendly. Without further ado, meet the BQ Aquaris VS.


BQ Aquaris VS

Most midrange smartphone comes with a bezel-less screen these days. So it’s quite disappointing seeing the Aquaris VS with lots of bezels. It sports the typical three navigation buttons at the bottom bezel, while the selfie camera and LED flash sits at the top. The 5.2-inch HD IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is just a midrange screen. Boasting of 1280×720 pixels in resolution and 282 pixel per inch density.

There’s also a Color LED light for notification at the top bezel if you look closely. The multi-touch screen is
scratch resistant, thanks to the 2.5D curved glass screen. It has a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 520 cd/m2, 72% NTSC and a viewing angle of about 178°. The screen which reached just 69% screen to body ratio boasts of a GFF full lamination and a NEG Dinorex T2X-1 Glass.

Both versions are upgradeable up to 256GB by putting a memory card into the sim 2 slot. The Aquaris VS runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat operating system and should be upgradeable to Android 8.0 Oreo.


The 12MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture is very sharp, capturing 4K resolution images. Photographs can go as high as 4032 x 3024 pixels in dimension when taken with the Aquaris VS. It comes with dual-LED flash by the side and lots of other features to help take your photography prowess to another level.
