Android One program enters Europe with the BQ Aquaris A4.5

BQ Aquaris A4.5 happens to be the newest Android One device that has sneaked into Europe. This phone has been launched in Spain and Portugal, and will be sold in the two nations at €169.90 and €179.90, respectively.

Actually, the BQ Aquaris A4.5 is not the first ever such device to enter the continent. The Karbonn Sparkle V has been spotted being sold in the UK, while a device named General Mobile 4G was released some months ago in Turkey. However, its launch does signify that Google wants to expand its program into more European nations now.

For those unaware, Android One smartphones are built by different manufacturers based on hardware guidelines dictated by Google. They are meant to provide the optimal Android experience at low prices, and are characterized by stock software and quick updates.
