As you may know, the first phones that use Ubuntu Touch by default are Bq Aquaris E4.5, Bq Aquaris E5 HD and Meizu MX4, but Canonical’s mobile operating system is also supported on the LG Nexus 4 phone.
While the Bq Ubuntu Phones were available at launch only in the European Union, Canonical has announced that they will also land in India in about two weeks.
Despite the fact that Ubuntu Touch is considered stable, it is not ready yet to compete with Android and iOS, lacking both features and native apps.
The official announcement:
“BQ will be launching the same two European devices. BQ Aquaris E4.5 and BQ Aquaris E5, with a black variant in India on the Snapdeal website. 2 weeks after launch there will be an Ubuntu Store on Snapdeal where other Ubuntu products will be available. We haven’t got a precise date for the launch, but it will happen probably in the next two weeks. For the Indian launch, Ubuntu Phone will not be released on devices with a specific Indian image but there will be specific apps content available from an Indian specific app store,”
