It isn’t a secret that Microsoft is working on its next phone in the Android AOSP based ‘X’ series which is being referred to as Nokia X2, and now sources at BGR India confirm that Nokia will present this phone in India within Next 3 weeks. Further lending credibility to the information is the fact that the testing units for Nokia X2 (RM-1013) have already reached India.
With Moto E present on the frontline, Nokia X is no longer an attractive proposition for entry level buyers and with new Nokia X2, Nokia will aim to give Moto E a tough fight. According to the leaks so far, we can expect Nokia X2 will feature 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 dual core SoC backed by 1 GB RAM, which seems to be a prerequisite to stand against Moto E. Device will pack 4 GB of internal storage with MicroSD card slot for further expansion.
The 4.3 inch display on Nokia X2 is rumored to pack 480 x 800 pixels which is lesser than what is present on Moto E, but not a deal breaker on a 4.3 inch display. Rear camera will now sport a 5 MP sensor and we hope Nokia uses the same sensor that we saw on Lumia 520 and 525.
Since its a Nokia Device, we are assured that build quality will be good. The phone will also bring some much needed improvement to Nokia X, like 1 GB RAM, but will the custom Windows Like Nokia X software Platform match with the latest Android KitKat on Moto E? Meanwhile Samsung is also preparing its Moto E competitor for launch in India. Let’s wait and watch.
