It is currently only slated to be available in Europe.
The E5 comes with a 5-inch screen, 720p high-definition display. It also packs a 1.3GHz Quad-Core Cortex A7 Processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB memory, and a microSD slot if you have the need for it.

The E5 will go on sale starting June 9 at the BQ Online store. It is currently only slated to be available in Europe. Whether the phone will reach the Americas or Asia is yet to be known since BQ’s manufacturer support, which is based in Spain, is only extending isupport within Europe.
