Nokia's first Android-based smartphone Nokia X, which was launched in the Indian market last month, has now surprisingly received a mild price cut. The device which was initially launched at the MOP of Rs 8,599 is now available at the reduced price of Rs. 7,729 and can be bought from the company's official site.
The Nokia X comes in Black, Green, Cyan, Yellow, Red and White color variants. It comes packed with a 4-inch WVGA display offering a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Processor coupled with 512MB of RAM. It has 4GB internal storage and the ability to take in microSD cards up to 32GB in capacity.
There's a 3MP fixed focus camera on the rear side of the device. One thing that stands as a disadvantage in the device is the absence of the front facing shooter.
Besides being a dual SIM handset, it also supports 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS connectivity options. The makers have added a 1500mAh battery fitted inside.
The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean powered handset also features FM Radio. It should be noted that the Nokia X runs on Android, but the login and app data is coupled with Microsoft's cloud services, and not Google like a regular Android devices. The phone runs a version of Android Open Source Project, with access to sideloading of apps, third-party app stores and Nokia's own store. You will find Microsoft essentials instead of Google services.
The battery is reportedly said to offer 13 hours of talk time on 2G and 17 days standby time to the device.
