Nokia X2 dual-SIM Android smartphone launched in India for Rs. 8,699

Microsoft Devices has officially launched its Nokia X2 dual-SIM Android smartphone in India today. With the new announcement, the Nokia X2 will be available in the country with a price tag of Rs. 8,699.

The Nokia X2 was originally unveiled by Microsoft in June as a successor of the Nokia X Android smartphone. To give an upgraded experience over its predecessor, the new smartphone has a large, 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB of RAM and Nokia X platform 2.0. There is 4GB on-board storage for storing content which can further be expanded up to 32GB.

The Android 4.3 Jelly Bean-based Nokia X2 has a list of pre-installed Microsoft apps and 15GB OneDrive cloud storage access. In addition, the smartphone supports Android apps through Nokia Store.

There is dual-SIM support alongside Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, A-GPS and a microUSB port. While its rear side features a 5-megapixel camera sensor along with an LED flash, there is a VGA camera sensor on the front. The smartphone packs with an 1800mAh battery which is claimed to provide up to 13 hours of backup on a 3G network.

The Nokia X2 could be considered as the last Android smartphone by Microsoft as it announced in July a strategy to merge its Nokia X business model with the Windows Phone-based Lumia devices.

Microsoft announced the acquisition of Nokia handset business for $7.2 billion last year and completed the deal in April. The acquisition has so far resulted expansion of Windows Phone shipments though the launch of Android-based Nokia X2 would add some number of Android smartphone shipments as well.
