Microsoft announces dual-SIM Nokia X2 phone with 4.3-inch screen, priced at €99 ($134). Microsoft Devices Group today announces Nokia X2, the newest addition to the expanding Nokia X family of affordable smartphones. "The Nokia X family is going from strength to strength, with the Nokia X smartphone achieving top-selling status in Pakistan, Russia, Kenya and Nigeria, while earning the third-best-selling smartphone spot in India," said Timo Toikkanen, head of Mobile Phones, Microsoft Devices Group.
The Nokia X2 represents the rapid evolution of the Nokia X family, offers stunning design, a more visually striking Fastlane, more Microsoft services, and upgraded specifications including a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, 5MP rear camera with autofocus and flash and a VGA front camera.
The Nokia X2 delivers an even more intuitive, smoother user experience powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor featuring a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1 GB of RAM and 1800 mAh battery. The Nokia X2 debuts the next-generation Nokia X Software Platform 2.0 and major enhancements to the user interface.
People can choose between three types of screens to facilitate navigation: the colorful "home" with resizable tiles; Fastlane to access recent apps and future calendar items; and a new Lumia-inspired apps list, from which people can pin items to the home screen. A pull-down notifications tab also allows people to glance at connectivity options as well as actionable items, such as software updates available for download. A new home key and visual multitasking complete the experience.
Nokia X2 will be priced at €99 ($134) and available immediately in select countries globally. It comes in glossy green, orange and black, with glossy yellow, white and matt dark grey completing the colorful range later.
