For many, the original Nokia X wasn't a killer phone. It had too many problems with respect to display resolution and underwhelming processor. Barely four months after Nokia introduced the Nokia X at this year's MWC tech show, Microsoft Mobile had to launch the second gen handset with a slightly modified hardware.
While the Nokia X is still available in India around Rs. 6,000, Microsoft could launch the second generation hardware in the country. In fact Nokia has already started importing devices in India in different set of batches.
Now according to a listing on the Zauba Indian import/export website, the Nokia X2 DS with 4.3-inch display has been shipped to India. Notably, the dual-SIM unit of the Nokia X2 listed in Zauba's shipping details is a retail unit. That means the handset is tipped to go official any time soon this week.
The import price of the Nokia X2 DS is Rs. 6,610. Users can expect the Nokia X2 DS to land in India at a price point of Rs. 8,499. So far there's no official word as to when Nokia will official launch the X2 Dual SIM smart phone in India.
