The Finnish giant Nokia has done it again, and nobody would have thought about it until now. Today, the company officially launched its first ever Android-powered phone in India, at a price point of Rs. 8,599.
The Nokia X is an ultra low-cost phone made to win over those who never got a chance to experience a smartphone. It costs Rs. 8,599, and has a 4-inch display and a new custom layer slapped on the top of Android-powered phone. Has Nokia managed to pull it off rightly? We already have the device next to us and waiting for the action to unfold.
Key highlights: 4-inch WVGA display (800 x 480); Android with custom user interface; 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor; 512MB of RAM; 4GB of on-board storage; Up to 32GB microSD card; 3G; Dual SIM and 1500mAh battery.
Nokia X isn't a technically rich phone, but it will open up new vistas in the ultra low-cost smartphone segment
Nokia X - Style meets Color
The Nokia X has a cute little thick plastic body. Of course it's sturdy, but at the same time eye catching as well. The phone is a timely reminder of Nokia's tryst with colorful design. And although the design is repetitive, Indian consumers will love it whatsoever.
The rear-back cover is removable, like any other Lumia/Asha handset. Also, the phone gives you an option to use two SIMs at the same time. If we're not mistaken, one can expand the internal memory with a help of a microSD card slot. Brilliant, isn't it?
Nokia X - Display
Being a budget phone, the Nokia X comes with a 4-inch WVGA display (800 x 480). It has an IPS display, which means that the viewing angles are better than any other normal cheap phone.
