Nokia has already shelved its X series and the last device which represents Nokia’s unnatural foray in Android space – The Nokia X2, has been introduced in India at not so competitive price of 8,700 INR. But its Nokia, one of the most popular and trusted brand among Indian consumers. Let’s take a look at the specifications of Nokia X2 and where it stands in today’s market.
One of the best thing about the Nokia Android devices is their Android UI skin which is somewhat inspired from the Windows OS. So, now please allow us to give you many reason for buying or not buying this device. This device has been launched at the price of 99 euros in London and and 8,700 INR in India
Camera and Internal Storage
Nokia X2 comes with a 5 MP rear camera sensor, 1/ 4 inches in size coupled with LED flash. This is the same sensor Nokia is using in Lumia 520 and performs decently well. Phones like Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Zenfone 5 flanking Nokia X2 have a better 8 MP camera unit which works well. The rear camera can record 720p HD videos, while a front VGA shooter is also present for video calling.
The internal memory storage capacity is 4GB which can be extended with the help of external memory card by adding a 32 GB microSD card. Apart from this you will also get OneDrive free 15GB storage subscription but this added cloud storage can now be availed from all Android devices by simply downloading OneDrive from Playstore.
Processor and Battery
Nokia X2 is powered by 1.2 GHz dual core Snapdragon 200 cortex A7 chipset with Adreno 305. The chipset is aided by 1 GB RAM. The chipset is similar to the one in Moto E. This is a much needed improvement over Nokia X which left us wanting for more. Added RAM will definitely improve performance on Nokia X2
Battery strength of 1800 mAh is also good, especially when the display is of 4.3 Inches and the pixel density is also low. Nokia claims that it will provide you the talktime of 10 hours on 2G and 13 hours on 3G.
Display and Features
The size of the display is 4.3 Inches which is something that the users may not like especially when there are so many other options under the same price range with bigger screens. The pixel density is also 217 ppi, this is also decent but we would like to highlight this pattern that even in case of Windows based smartphones, Nokia does not provide high PPI on this price range.
You will have a micro-USB port to charge the device, Dual SIM slot on the phone where both of them will be supporting the micro SIMs. It also support 3G on both the slots and then as obvious WiFi is also available on this device.

The Nokia X2 brings some much needed improvements to Nokia X series, which will enable it to compete with fierce Android competition in budget price range. The Nokia branding and other advantages that come along will also help it garner good market share. Only if Google services were present, the device would have been so much more enticing for Android lovers, but Microsoft options aren’t bad either. We are eager to spend more time with Nokia X2, which is what Nokia X should have been in the first place.
