Android Nougat still seems to be expanding at a faster rate than previous versions, something that invites optimism regarding software support. More and more manufacturers are joining the party of updates, and not only with their most prominent terminals.
BQ is the latest of those who have decided to bring Nougat to one of its great devices, the Aquaris X5 Plus, but it is not version 7.0 as it does most, but the 7.1.1, the most current. From today its owners will start receiving the OTA, which brings changes beyond those that brings Android.
In addition to the changes in notifications, the addition of the multiventana and other features of Android stock, BQ has brought some new features of its own, being the most outstanding BQ Launcher that allows, among other things, you can do double tap anywhere in the Screen to turn it off or slide up from the bottom bar to open the application drawer.

Other changes are in the phone and SMS app, whose main novelty is that it will identify the user who calls you even if it is not in your contact list, as long as it appears in the Google database. As for your SMS app, it is now compatible with standard RCS messaging, to be able to send messages over the data network or Wi-Fi.
The update comes as of today in a staggered way, so if you have not yet received the notification, you can check it manually from the settings of your smartphone, in the 'About the phone' section and selecting 'Software update'. From the blog of BQ you can also check when they will launch Nougat to other devices Aquaris. Are you already fond of Android 7.1.1?
