Back at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, Finnish giant Nokia went on to announce its first Android smartphone (or at least running on the forked Android, thanks to the AOSP) and said that the smartphone will be available worldwide immediately. And today, Nokia India has sent out media invites for the launch of the Nokia X in India which is scheduled for March 10th. It is unclear if the company will also launch the Nokia X+ and the Nokia XL in India or not, but Nokia X will hit the stores later this month for sure.


Going by the specifications, the Nokia X packs in a decent 4 inch display which has a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels while the smartphone is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Play processor which is coupled with 512 MB of RAM. The internal storage is pegged at 4 GB while this will be expandable using a microSD card slot. The smartphone runs on the Nokia X software platform 1.0 which is based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and carries a Windows Phone-like user interface.

There is an okayish 3 megapixel fixed focus camera on the back of the Nokia X and it will have 2G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, GPS, FM Radio on the connectivity front. The smartphone appeared on pre-order over online retailer TheMobileStore for Rs.8,500 but the company later removed the price tag. We will have to wait for Nokia to officially reveal the price of the smartphone which is going to fill the gap between the Nokia Asha series and the Windows Phone running Lumia smartphones.
