Nokia Officially Launched the Android Family, Nokia X





Before a few weeks, there were rumors that Nokia is going to launch Android based devices and at last Nokia has done it by announcing officially in Mobile World Congress (MWC). The Finnish company plans to launch a whole new series for Android devices, Nokia X that has mediocre and premium smartphones. The priciest member in the Nokia X family is Nokia XL, but it is justified with its excellent features and specification.

If you think that these devices will run the same Android that runs on devices then you are wrong as Nokia has modified the code significantly and the interface of their devices will be totally different from standard Android interface. Another major change is made in the Play Store. There will be no “Play Store” to download the application. In order to download the application, you have to go to Nokia’s store or Yandex, the third party app store.

Let’s talk about the feature and specification of premium Nokia’s Android device, the Nokia XL. It has fairly large 5 inch screen, which is in accordance with the current trend – as far as the android platform is concerned. The IPS resolution is about 480*800 pixels, makes up to 187 pixels per inch which is not very big enough. It has 1 GHz dual core processor and 768 MB of RAM – well enough to provide a good experience on the Android based Nokia’s devices. The internal memory is 4 GB and with a microSD card, it can be expanded up to 32 GB. The Finnish company has also released some details about the camera so we will not need to hunch this time! The rear camera is 5 MP, equipped with LED flash, has 1/4 inch sensor and 32mm focal length while the front facing 2MP camera does not sound bad at all. It will surely prove handy in the occasional video conversation.


Nokia has also done a good work on the software and you will surely content with it. The device comes with ISO manual and capable of capturing the panoramic pictures. Many loyal users of Nokia turned to other devices due to poor functionality of their devices but the Finnish company has done a good try by launching Android based devices which are increasing in popularity day by day. Expectations are high that this will result in the growth of their market share.

Other specs of the Nokia XL include A-GPS, FM Radio, Bluetooth and 2000mAH battery which is big enough to pass a day with a single charge. The device also has the support of two SIM cards that makes sense that company is targeting emerging markets and adding the extra value. The phone is priced ($150) and will be available for sale in store in Q2 2014.
