Android Nougat is spreading slowly due to the commitment of manufacturers to upgrade their phones faster than earlier versions of the operating system. Not only they make it relatively faster, but that also give support to more phones, not just the highlights.
Already about 15 days ago used that BQ was beginning to update the Aquaris X 5 Plus to Android 7.1.1, but this time plays a complete family, the U Aquaris, receive the expected OTA. In this way, the Spanish manufacturer meets (narrowly) estimates of launch the update during the first quarter of this year.
Starting today BQ begins to deploy the update to Android 7.1.1 Nougat Aquaris U family with changes seen in the Aquaris X 5 Plus.
As with the Aquaris X 5 Plus, changes will be the incorporation of the BQ Launcher which, among other things, will allow turn off the screen with double-tap any part of it or slide bottom upwards to open the drawer of applications. Your SMS application will be compatible with the RCS standard.
All these changes and many more will arrive in the Spanish family in a staggered fashion. From today it will begin to reach the Aquaris U Plus, tomorrow the Aquaris U Lite, and in the coming days, finally, reach the Aquaris U.
