We all gave you the news about the rumoured Android Nokia phone and guess what? The phone was unveiled at MWC 2014 at Barcelona. But it wasn’t just one phone, it was 3. Nokia’s Android phones are named the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL. All three of them run on the Android v4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS. But the user interface is a magical combination of Symbian and Windows Phone.
Nokia X, Nokia XL and Nokia X+ have very clean user interfaces. It is nothing like what we know from the Android skins such as the TouchWiz from Samsung or the HTC Sense UI from HTC. You get your usual Lumia live tiles but they have their own Symbian touch to it. It is really amazing how clean Nokia has made this UI. The software allows multitasking as well. You have the usual lock screen, notification panel.
Let us talk about these three devices. Nokia X and Nokia X+ have the same 3.15MP primary camera and no secondary camera at all. On the other hand the Nokia XL comes with a 5MP primary camera and 2MP secondary camera. Nokia X, Nokia XL and Nokia X+ all come with Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play 1 GHz Dual Core processors. The RAM on the other hand differs. Nokia X comes with 512MB of RAM, whereas the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL have 768MB of RAM. None of the phones offer NFC. All the phones are 3G enabled.
Nokia X and Nokia X+ have the same display size and resolution that is 4.0 inch with a resolution of 480×800 pixels. Nokia XL is literally XL and comes with 5.0 inch display with the same resolution, which is kind of a setback. The Nokia Android family will have 4GB of internal memory expandable to up to 32GB. The phone will come preloaded with a lot of apps so you do get your piece of fun if you cannot connect to internet anytime soon. We are really excited about this phone. It is a whole new experience of Android with Nokia. The most exciting part is probably the unlimited music streaming with Nokia Music and the beauty of HERE Maps and HERE Drive.
Nokia X is releasing straight away but Nokia X+ and Nokia XL release later this year in about 2-3 months.
