World leader in Symbian and Windows smartphone manufacturing company Nokia has launched its series on Android smartphones at MWC 2014.
The Nokia X+ is one of three Nokia devices that run Android. The device is an entry-level offering and as such features hardware that befits its price. Under the hood, there is a 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 CPU, 768 MB RAM and 4 GB internal memory with 32 GB of expandable memory.
Nokia X+ supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, AGPS, EDGE, GPRS and 3G connectivity options. It is backed by a 1500mAh battery, which can deliver up to 13 hours of talktime and up to 672 hours of standby time on 2G network.
The Nokia X is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), and is powered by Microsoft and Nokia services. The highlight of the Nokia X is the highly customized version of Android, with the Metro-inspired UI and access to Nokia’s own app store. While there’s no access to Google’s Play Store, users can side-load Android apps from any third-party source. Nokia has used the AOSP version corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the baseline for its operating system.
Nokia’s first Android smartphone, the Nokia X+, is now listed at an online retailer in India, with a price of Rs. 9,500. The retailer claims the Nokia X+ smartphone will be available from 15 March 2014. The Nokia X+ is available in its Black, Green, Cyan, Yellow, Red, and White color variants.
