Ads by Google
The Finnish smartphone manufacturer Nokia is expected to launch its second Android smartphone, Nokia X+ by the second quarter of ongoing year 2014. This smartphone would be an upgraded variant to Nokia’s first Android smartphone, Nokia X. The Finnish Smartphone brand Nokia, who were once ruling the smartphone market worldwide, is going through a tough situation these days. Last year, the Nokia fans received the shocking news about Nokia selling its hardware manufacturing business to the giant IT player, Microsoft. Many tech experts also claimed it as an end for Nokia smartphones. But the manufacturers keep on launching new Lumia smartphones, running on the Windows Phone OS. The success of the Android operating system made them to work upon and launch their first Android smartphone as Nokia X.
In the launch event of Nokia X, the manufacturers also showcased Nokia X+ and Nokia XL, which are to be launched very soon. The Nokia X+ is a very well finished smartphone which boasts the features of Android as well as of Windows Phone OS. The decent hardware configuration, Dual SIM support, operating system support and the trustable label of Nokia makes the Nokia X+, a great buy. Nokia X and Nokia X+ have many features in common, and many that differentiates them. Here, we bring you a close watch on the technical specifications of the upcoming Nokia X+.
Nokia X


Nokia X+ sports a 4-inch IPS LCD Capacitive Touch Screen display, which produces a resolution of 280 x 800 pixels at 233 pixels per inch. It supports Multi-touch only up to 2 fingers.

Processor & RAM

This smartphone is powered by a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual Core Processor coupled with 768MB of RAM and Adreno 203 GPU. This hardware configuration is capable enough to drive this smartphone without any issues. You can enjoy addictive HD games with an ease on Nokia X+.

Operating System

Nokia X+ runs on a forked version of Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The forked version suggests that it doesn’t support the access to Google Play Store. However, you can run around 75% of Apps & Games available on Google Play Store, on this device. Application & Games installation for 3rd party App store is also allowed. The Nokia Store available on this smartphone boasts many exclusive Nokia Apps like Nokia MixRadio, HERE Drive and HERE Maps, which were earlier available only on Nokia Lumia Smartphones.

Camera & Memory

Nokia X+ houses a 3.15 Megapixels rear camera, featuring Panorama and face detection. However, this smartphone lacks an LED flash on the back and a secondary camera on front for video calls. The rear camera also doesn’t support HD video recording. For Storage, Nokia X+ packs 4GB of internal memory, which can be expanded up to 32GB using a MicroSD card. Nokia may give away a 4GB MicroSD card in the box.

Connectivity & Battery

The connectivity features on Nokia X+ includes 3G, Bluetooth 3.0 with A2DP, HS, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Hotspot and MicroUSB 2.0. Nokia X+ is fuelled by a 1500mAH battery which claims 408 hours of stand-by and up to 13 hours 20 minutes of talk time.

Our Word on Nokia X+

Nokia X+ would be a very good buy for those who are looking for their first mid-budget Android smartphone. Post its launch, Nokia X+ will compete with Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2 and other Android offerings in the segment. The Nokia X+ features a well finished and attractive body design, which will attract the young buyers. Nokia X+ will be offered in various vibrant colours, which will make you stand different in the crowd.

The hardware configuration on the Nokia X+ is quite good. This smartphone doesn’t compromise in standard workings. However, if you need an Android smartphone for running huge applications and HD games, Nokia X+ could disappoint you a bit. We feel that Nokia X+ would be a value for money package deal because of its application & games support list, in spite that it doesn’t run Google Play Store. The availability of exclusive Nokia Apps and the 75% of Android Apps & Games offer you an experience of owning an Android & Windows Phone together. We hope that it will be your next great buy.
