Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Bq Aquarius E4.55 is the first Ubuntu phone available for ordering worldwide, but the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition should also become available soon.
Despite the fact that it has not been developed by a big vendor, the Ubuntu community has adopted the Bq Aquarius E4.55 fast. Recently, a user has discovered how to access a hidden Factory Mode Menu that permits the users to access to different tools for benchmarking the hardware components.
To access the hidden Factory Mode, follow the below steps exactly:
- Turn off the device
- Hold the Power and the Volume Down buttons for more than 10 seconds, until the booting process starts. Keep pressing the buttons while the phone turns on.
Speaking of Ubuntu phones, Mark Shuttleworth has announced that a new Ubuntu Phone will become available this year. And the phone will be capable of providing a full desktop experience, when connected to a display.
