Android has won the smartphone OS wars, after so many weeks of rumor Nokia finally unveiled its family of Android smartphones built on the Android Open Source Project (which corresponds to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean) called the Nokia X range at the MWC show in Barcelona earlier today. The first three handsets in this series being the Nokia X, X+ and XL.
The Nokia X UI doesn’t look like the regular Android at all, it is a combination of different elements from several platforms, a part of Android, another part of Windows Phone, a touch of Nokia Asha UI, yes! you can call it a hybrid mobile platform. The Nokia X and X+ looks exactly the same physically both having a 4-inch display except X+ has a higher internal memory and an SD card which corresponds to the slight price difference. The Nokia XL takes the same design but stretches so it’s bigger across the front and looks like a phablet with a 5-inch WVGA display, 768MB RAM, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus LED flash and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
The Nokia X family are offered in different colour variants, bright green, cyan, red, yellow, white, and black. The Nokia X will start shipping as early as next week, while the Nokia X+ and XL will be available early Q2. So lets take a quick look at the Nokia X Specifications.
