Nokia are venturing into the Android smartphone market with their very first Android handset set to make its debut. Previously Nokia’s smartphones have all come with Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system but Nokia are looking to diversify and we could see its new Android device unveiled at next week’s MWC. Here’s what we anticipate the new Nokia Android Handset to include.
The new Nokia smartphone is expected to be called the Nokia X. It’s thought to come in a choice of six colours which will include green, yellow, red, blue, black and white. Running on Google’s Android platform, the speculation is that it will use Microsoft apps rather than linking with Google Play and the Google App store.
The Nokia X is likely to feature a 4-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854 which gives it a resolution of 285 pixels per inch. It will be powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon dual-core S4 processsor and 512MB of RAM. The budget smartphone will also come with 4GB of built-in storage which can be increased with a microSD card and is thought to include a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 1500mAh battery.
The Nokia X will run on the very latest Android operating system, KitKat 4.4.2, and is expected to be priced extremely competitively to appeal to emerging overseas markets. It’s not known if the Nokia X will be available in the UK as yet. Watch this space for more on the Nokia X and MWC as we get it.
