Nokia has just announced three new Android 4.1.2 based smartphones called the Nokia X, the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL. These smartphones run on Android, but not quite as one would have expected. It is claimed that the three smartphones run on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) to allow deeper customization options for Nokia and developers. The smartphones also include Nokia and Microsoft apps like Skype, OneDrive, Nokia Here Maps, Mix Radio etc.
The Nokia X and the X+ feature a 4 inch display, a 3 megapixel camera on the back and a dual core Snapdragon S4 1 GHz processor. The Nokia X packs 512MB of RAM, while the Nokia X+ packs a slightly beefier 768MB of RAM. The Nokia XL comes with a 5 inch display accompanied by a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 2 megapixel front shooter. The same Snapdragon S4 chipset is used here along with 768MB of RAM. The three smartphones will cost €89 ($122), €99 ($136) and €109 ($150) respectively. The Nokia X is said to be available immediately, while the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL should break cover by the end of Q2 in developing markets. Nokia is yet to give away info on the complete hardware specs sheet, so we’ll update you with more information as we have it.
