So good, we can already say that the files to install Ubuntu Touch on Bq Aquaris E4.5 with Android are available and they work perfectly on the smartphone.
These files are on the Ubuntu website, for now as it will not take long to upload to the BQ website and like Google smartphones, the Bq Aquaris E4.5 with Android gets a code name, in this case Krillin. It is important to know this name as the installation of Ubuntu Touch can be done by all known methods and in case of doubt, we can always help ourselves by searching through Krillin.
