Nokia X pre orders haven’t surpassed 1 million in China

Nokia X

A report from this Friday claimed that the Nokia X had surpassed over 1 million pre orders within just four days in China. However, it has now come to light that this was merely a pre registration page. Entering your credentials and pressing the button would be considered a pre order, without actually requiring a commitment. A contest from a local retailer reportedly led to the massive interest in the device as a free Nokia X was being promised to a lucky user who presses the pre order button.

Moreover, this page allows users to pre order the device in as many colors as they want. So it is clear that Nokia’s wide claims of surpassing 1 million pre orders in China aren’t exactly true. This however doesn’t take away the demand for the company’s new flagship, although we’re sure there were better ways of endorsing its upcoming product as the company could come under severe public scrutiny after this revelation.

The smartphone packs a 4 inch 480 x 800 resolution display, a 3.15 megapixel camera, a dual core 1 GHz Snapdragon S4 Play chipset, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with the company’s custom user interface with several “exclusive” apps and a 1,500 mAh battery.

  1. Nokia is still a relatively new brand in China so let’s give it more time to develop its name in the country.
    I still remember the old Nokia brand that rhyme with quality.
    With support from Microsoft, let’s see how it will fare in China in the next few years.

  2. Another continued slide for Nokia? Does this mean that it’s not even cracking the Chinese market? Something is definitely not working right with Nokia these days.

  3. I think right now people want to get an idea of what is out there, even if it is not the best. People just want options and sometimes a so-so option is better than only having one option on the table.

  4. I don’t even see how that is legit to actually do. When you count orders you are going to count real, legitimate pre-orders, not a random sign-up sheet that anyone can weasel out of.

  5. The hardware specs are even not comparable to the google smart watch, Why media is creating so much of buzz with outdated and stripped down phone

  6. Not a surprise. Android, whether it has Google Apps on it or not, seems to be the prevalent choice in China.
