Nokia Upgrade its Android Phone with Nokia X2

Just months after the announcement of X family at MWC earlier this year, Nokia (Microsoft Devices) has come up with the evolution in the shape of Nokia X2.

X2 is the successor of Nokia X, the low end device in the series. The design in Nokia X2 has remained same or should I say a bit more like Asha series but there are many things both inside and outside that have been upgraded.

The most noticeable are the bigger screen, 1 Gig of RAM, addition of secondary camera and home key.

Nokia X2 features a 4.3-inches IPS ClearBlack LCD on the front with a 480×800 resolution (217ppi pixel density). Above the screen there’s a VGA camera and below the screen now there two keys.

Previously on Nokia X there used to be only one key, used both as back and home ─ creating much confusion for users — but the company has listened to the feedback and now home and back keys are separately present on the bottom front.

Nokia X2 features a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera and an LED flash.

X2 is packed with slightly better hardware, featuring a Snapdragon 1.2GHz dual core processor, 1GB of RAM and 4GB internal memory; which you can extend with a microSD card.

Just like its predecessor it takes two microSIM cards with 3G support on SIM 1.

Nokia X2 also comes with a bigger battery, 1800mAh instead of 1500mAh with Nokia X. I am not sure if its due to bigger battery but X2 is thicker and heavier than its forerunner, measuring 121.7 x 68.3 x 11.1mm and 150 grams.

Nokia X2 also runs on a forked version of Android, Nokia X software platform 2.0 which is actually based on Android 4.3 AOSP. The newer version enhances the capabilities of tiled interface and the fastlane.

Once again Google Play Store is not included, but you can side load nearly all android apps on this device or use the 3rd party app stores.

Nokia X2 covers almost all the drawbacks we had found in the X. The additional RAM will make sure that phone runs smooth even if you are running some resource hungry applications. The auto-focus camera with LED and addition of front facing camera were also much needed features.

There is no word on the availability of this phone in Pakistan, but when it does; it will be priced at Rs. 14000 or more.

        • Muhammad Ashraf

          let;s see otherwise you buy windows 8 from nokia

          • Taha Najam

            Gladly.

    • I wish they put Android in Lumia 925 :) A premium Android to rule them all

      • Fakhre Alam

        exactly

      • Taha Najam

        Ugh..no.

      • SDKforLumia

        I would rather like to have something like Lumia 720 ( the most beautiful and balanced phone I have ever come across personally, not because I own 1, but it really is) with the screen size of 5″ and cam of Lumia 930 with android is an EMERGENCY BUY for me

        • Eli Ehsan

          Dude!! For REAL???

    • Taha Najam

      You do realize they never stopped making phones don’t you? Their phones just didn’t use the same OS as everybody else so you ditched them.

      • Fakhre Alam

        i hated WP that time when i switched to android

        • Taha Najam

          Weird. That’s exactly how I felt about lagdroid first time I used it. Opinions man.

          • Fakhre Alam

            android was and is still better than WP. Wp has to catch up faster

    Nokia will be always failing now :)

    • Taha Najam

      They are doing better than HTC, Sony and Motorola actually. LG sold 12.1 million phones last quarter while Nokia shipped 10 million Lumia devices. Not bad at all.

  • Taha Najam

    Microsoft’s Trojan Horse for Google.

  • Sikandar Ali

    I personally think Nokia’s best product is Lumia. Either get a Lumia or go for a proper android phone. I m using Lumia 820 for one and half year, and now I got Lumia 1320. Its a superb phone with a perfect OS!! I’ll never ever go for android or iOS.

  • This smartphone is stunning creation of nokia.its bright colours are amazing and eye catching.
