New Delhi: Nokia XL, the largest of the Nokia X series phones based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), will come to Indian markets this month.
The Nokia X+, which is the same size as the Nokia X, but with better specs will also become available this month.
The Nokia XL sports a 5-inch WVGA (800×480 pixels) display, runs on a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and has 768MB of RAM. It comes with a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front snapper. It offers an onboard memory of 4GB, while it can be expanded using a microSD card (up to 32GB). The phone also has a bigger batter (2,000mAh) in comparison to the Nokia X.
It runs a forked version of Android, called Nokia X software. While the Nokia app store lets you download apps made specifically for the Nokia X platform, third party app stores are also available, which enables the download of Android apps that are not available on Nokia's stores.
The device runs Android, but the login and app data is said to be tied to Microsoft's cloud services, and not Google as in any other Android phone.
