Microsoft has been circulating in the rumors for quite sometime as the firm is speculated to be prepping the successor of the Nokia X smartphone. Now, the software giant appears to be sent out a teaser for an announcement on June 24. Though the teaser does not reveal any information, a BGR India report claims that it tips the launch date of the alleged Nokia X2 smartphone.
It has to be noted that it is the same source that revealed that the Nokia X2 will be seeing the light of the day on June 23. It is also suggested that the handset will feature two buttons instead of a single back button, which was one of the major downsides of the Nokia X handset devoid a home button.
Going by the previous reports, the Nokia X2 smartphone’s possible specifications were leaked by an AnTuTu benchmark test and it is tipped to feature a 4.3 inch display with WVGA resolution of 480×800 pixels and be powered by a dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor ticking at 1.2 GHz clock speed. The handset is also alleged to include 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage space along with expandable storage support. The device is also speculated to arrive with a 5 MP primary snapper and a VGA front-facer for video calling.
If these specifications turn out to be true, the Nokia X2 smartphone will definitely be a tough challenger for the Moto E, one of the best selling entry-level smartphone. Also, the handset appears to bring some improvements to the Nokia X with a home button to quickly access the home screen without long pressing the back button and 1 GB of RAM for efficient multi-tasking and smooth app handling. Moreover, this time the Nokia’s AOSP software is believed to match the likes of Android KitKat operating system.
