Nokia X, X+ and XL - Android Powered Nokia Phones


Nokia X, X+ and XL - Android Powered Nokia Phones

Rumours of Nokia's Android powered phones are true and at Mobile World Congress, the phone maker has announced not one, but three Android powered phones - the Nokia X, X+ and XL.

All three devices are targeting at the lower end of the market with them being priced at €89, €99 and €109 respectively.

These devices won't be coming to the UK, western Europe, North America and Japan as they are targeted at more developing countries. They aren't made to compete with high end devices such as the iPhone 5S or Galaxy S4.

If you're expecting to see stock Android on these devices, keep dreaming. Nokia is running a highly modified version of Android on all the devices. It doesn't even have the official Google apps such as Maps, Chrome and Gmail. You also can't access the Play Store, instead Nokia has included its own Android app store, where developers can upload apps.

All three devices can run dual-SIMs, a very popular feature amongst phones in developing countries. The X has a 4-inch 800x480 screen, 3MP camera, 512MB ram, 4GB storage, MicroSD card slot and a 1500mAh battery. The X+ is very similar with only larger RAM. But the XL has a larger 5-inch 800x480 screen, 5MP camera, 768MB of RAM and a 2000mAh battery.

All the devices look stunning as they follow the gorgeous Lumia line up. They come in a variety of colours and follow the minimalistic style Nokia has been following for years now.

It would have been great to see a high end Android powered Nokia device but we don't think that will ever happen.
