Today, Microsoft has finally launched its latest Nokia X2 Dual SIM smartphone globally. The smartphone which was leaked several times in the past has finally seen the light of the day. Nokia has already listed the handset on its official site.
The Nokia X2 Dual SIM comes in glossy green, orange, black, glossy yellow, white and matt dark grey and is priced at 99 Euros (approximately Rs. 8,090) before tax and subsidies. But so far, the company has not revealed the availability of the handset in India.
The particular handset is essentially the upgraded version of the previously released Nokia X handsets. Thus, don't expect flagship hardware in it.
The specs of the Nokia X2 is not too impressive but certainly, its better than the Nokia X. To be precise, the handset comes with a 4.3-inch (800 x 480 pixels) ClearBlack LCD display with a Scratch resistant glass and it is powered by 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with Adreno 302 and also is supported by 1GB RAM. Obviously it runs on Nokia X software platform 2.0 based on AOSP Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean).
The smartphone comes with an upgraded camera features which consist of 5MP rear camera with LED flash and HD video recording along with a 0.3MP (VGA) front-facing shooter. Native storage seats at 4GB and it is further expandable up to 32GB via microSD card.
Connectivity options include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n,Bluetooth, GPS, and it is a Dual SIM phone and it draws its energy from a 1800 mAh battery.
Moreover, Nokia X2 also comes pre-loaded with HERE Maps and MixRadio. You can download more Android apps from the Nokia Store.
The latest offering from Microsoft and Nokia is surely an upgraded version of the Nokia X handset but it it not much of a potent device, as far as the current smartphones that are selling in the market with a similar price tag are concerned.
