As far as specs go, it’s still pretty much the same with the X2, but with advanced versions. There’s now a version with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM, it houses the Snapdragon 660 chip with a faster octa-core processor. Lets find out more below.

At first glance you’d think it has the same bodily features like its little sibling. However, it’s worthy to note that the X2 Pro has an aluminium overall back and covered exquisitely in glass. This makes it far more attractive than the X2.

It measures 8.4mm in thickness and weighs 168g overall. You can get it in Midnight Black, Glaze White and Deep Silver colors.

Just like the X2, the X2 Pro comes with the exact same screen. When Pro and Plus variant are known for their bigger and better display, BQ thinks otherwise in its new Aquaris smartphone. There are no narrow bezels in sight, with super minimal top and bottom bezels.

The 5.65-inch FHD+ IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen delivers be amazing display. The screen boasts of 1080 x 2160 pixels in resolution and 427 pixel per inch density, which absolutely makes it clear enough for users. Apart from dishing out an 18:9 ratio, it stretches up to 75.6% screen to body ratio as well.

  1. It’s USB-C and not MicroUSB. I won’t buy any new device with MicroUSB anymore, USB-C is much more convenient
