Nokia X – the departure from Windows

 

Nokia-X-Dual-SIM

If you have seen the Nokia X mobile phones, you will notice one thing has changed under the hood, despite the apparent looks of a Windows Phone type of metro/tiles screen. That change is the presence of Android OS.

If you were me, you will be wondering what is up with Nokia’s strategy on the mobile phone market with its Nokia X series. In fact, if they are trying to compete on the high-end front, then I can safely tell you, that it is not the case. The Nokia X android smartphones aren’t really flagships at all.  All the models of the X series are not high-end models. But there is another agenda on the table – the emerging markets. And if you watch where it would be launched first, you will see it is targeted at people with the need for dual-SIM configuration, easily load photos, even changing cases and easy to use, not to mentioned the aggressive pricing.

Under the hood, the operating system used is Android 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean). While it may lack KitKat’s optimisations to improve Android’s performance, it feels familiar. Let’s take a look at the specifications:

Display size: 4 ” (800 x 840) , 2-point touch
