The much talked of Nokia X and its other variant X+ have been launched today Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona. The Nokia X is the first Android powered smartphone and will be available in Africa and other growth markets.
The Nokia X
The Nokia X comes with a 4-inch LCD display. The phone has similar to Windows Phone 8 UI. The Nokia X does not come with pre-installed Google Play Services. As a result the Play Store isn’t available on the Nokia X or Nokia X+. Though, Android apps can be downloaded through Yandex Store.
The X+ has the same four-inch screen, but adds an SD card slot, with a 4GB microSD card included. There’s 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and a three-megapixel rear camera.
The XL has a five-inch screen, 768MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and two cameras: a two-megapixel front-facing camera and five-megapixel rear equivalent.
Available in Growth Markets
The devices are available in green, red, yellow, red and bright blue. “The devices will be available broadly, starting in growth markets,” across Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, said the head of devices and services at Nokia Stephen Elop.
