It just happened. A dream, which I am sure many of us have dreamt of has finally been fulfilled today. I am sure that a lot of you have wished for an Android smartphone to run on a hardware built by Nokia which is top notch going by the design and the quality of material the company uses and today, it has finally happened.

To start with, the Nokia X smartphone arrives with a 4 inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels while it will be powered by 1 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play processor coupled with 512 MB of RAM which is decent enough.

The device uses Microsoft’s Cloud instead of Google Cloud for app data and comes with Nokia’s unique Fastlane experience. The Nokia X has a powerful 1500 mAh battery and packs in 2G, 3G, W-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm audio jack as connectivity options.


Next is the Nokia X+ which packs in almost similar specifications as that of the Nokia X except that the device comes with a little extra RAM and storage option. The Nokia X+ will carry 786 MB of RAM and have 4 GB of internal storage which will further be expandable up to 32 GB using a microSD card slot. Rest of the specifications are same as that of the Nokia X.


Last but not the least is the Nokia XL, which is a large 5 inch Android smartphone from Nokia which has a display resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The Nokia XL is powered by 1 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Play processor with 786 MB of RAM and has memory expandable up to 32 GB. The company has been kind enough to include a decent 5 megapixel autofocus camera with Flash on the back of the Nokia XL and also a 2 megapixel front camera will be available for users. There is a powerful 2000 mAh battery on the device which will give users upt o 16 hours of talktime.

The Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL have all been priced at 88 Euros, 99 Euros and 109 Euros which is quite a decent pricing from the finnish giant and the devices will be available in multiple colours, as per the Nokia tradition. While the Nokia X is to go on sale in many countries immediately, the Nokia X+ and XL will reach the shores sometime on Q2 2014.
