Microsoft-owned Nokia is all set to launch its next generation Android-based smartphone in the form of Nokia X2 today. The handset's name is not confirmed at the moment and if you look at Nokia's track records, it already has a several Nokia X range of handsets. But again, you shouldn't be confused with the recent Xs, as we are talking about are those, which were based on Symbian or Java platform.
However, calling the unannounced handset with a rumored name- Nokia X2, lets see what we know about it so far. First off, the smartphone is not something, which has appeared online all of a sudden and out of thin air, but it made its first appearance back in May. Then the handset was leaked via the AnTuTu benchmark site where it supposedly scored 11,827 points.
Then, it was codenamed as RM-1013 and the details leaked via the leak suggested that it would come with a 4.3-inch WVGA display offering a resolution of 800×480 pixels. It would be powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM.
Obviously, it is Android-based phone which will use Android's open-source build (AOSP). Otehr specs revealed then were 4GB native storage, 5-megapixel rear camera and front-facing VGA shooter and a dual-SIM support. But we are not sure whether the specs will remain the same and some aspects could be changed and it wouldn't be a matter to be surprised about.
We'll shortly come up with the official pricing and specs of the smartphone along with features. In the meantime, you can watch the live streaming of the launch event above.
