Nokia X2 Android Smartphone UnveiledNokia India

Nokia, now part of Microsoft Devices unit, has unveiled the second generation Android smartphone dubbed as Nokia X2.

"The Nokia X family is going from strength to strength, with the Nokia X smartphone achieving top-selling status in Pakistan, Russia, Kenya and Nigeria,[3] while earning the third-best-selling smartphone spot in India," said Timo Toikkanen, head of Mobile Phones, Microsoft Devices Group.

"The Nokia X2 elevates the Nokia X experience with a stellar new design, ease of use and new Microsoft experiences. We're proud to continue to bring smartphone innovation to lower and lower price points," he added.

The new Nokia X2 is a major upgrade over its predecessor in terms of screen size, RAM capacity, CPU speed and camera specifications. It sports 4.3-inch WVGA (480x800p) ClearBlack LCD screen, 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 1GB RAM, 5.0-megapixel primary camera (with Auto-focus and LED flash), 0.3-megapixel VGA camera and a 1800 mAh battery, which runs the phone for 13 hours of talk time and close to 23 days under standby mode.

Another discernible change we see in the new phone is the inclusion of home button on the screen; It's predecessor just had back – button, which also functioned as home button. However,  many users were unaware that pressing the back (>) button for sometime would bring them back to home screen. Hence, now the company has incorporated a dedicated home button right on the screen (bottom right).

Like its predecessor, the new phone too runs on the tweaked Android Open Source Project OS. It features 'Tiles' like interface seen inside the Windows Phone OS-powered devices and instead of Google based Gmail, Play store and Maps services, people will find Nokia's very own 'Here', 'City Lens' maps service, browsers and others.

The company has confirmed that the new Nokia X2 will be priced €99 (around $135/₹8,100) excluding local taxes and hit stores across global markets in July.
