New Delhi: Finnish smartphone maker Nokia is expected to launch the other two devices -- X+ and XL -- in the Indian market in the next 60 days, meaning early May.
Earlier, the company launched its first Android smartphone, Nokia X, in India at Rs 8,599. However, unlike other Android devices, the login and app data in Nokia X is tied to Microsoft’s cloud services, and not to Google like in many devices. However, you are given access to sideloading of apps, third-party app stores and Nokia’s own store. Nokia has used AOSP corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the baseline for its operating system.
All the three devices come with free access to Here Maps, with offline maps and integrated turn-by-turn navigation, and Nokia MixRadio for free music streaming and downloadable playlists.
Both Nokia X and Nokia X+ are dual-SIM phones that come with 4-inch 480x800 displays and are powered by 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. Both have identical 4GB internal storage, with expandable support up to 32GB via microSD card, and are powered by a 1500mAh battery. While the Nokia X comes with 512MB RAM, the Nokia X+ comes with 768MB RAM. Both phones have a 3-megapixel rear camera, but no front shooter.
The biggest of the lot, Nokia XL comes with a 5-inch 480x800 display, a 5-megapixel camera, a 720p front camera, 768MB RAM and a 2000mAh battery, while sharing other specifications with its younger siblings.
In addition, Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL come with free cloud storage from Microsoft's OneDrive (earlier called SkyDrive). With the purchase of any Nokia X family smartphone in select markets, people will get one month of Skype's Unlimited World Subscription for a limited time.
Both the Nokia X and Nokia X+ will be available in bright green, bright red, cyan, yellow, black and white. The Nokia XL will be available in bright green, orange, cyan, yellow, black and white. Colour availability may vary across regions.
The company had earlier said that Nokia X+ is expected to be cost about Rs 8,400 and Nokia XL at Rs 9,200.
