Following the success of its predecessor the Nokia X (which initially was Nokia’s first Android device), we had been hearing rumors regarding the launch of its successor the Nokia X2. Microsoft Devices Pakistan have today unveiled the Nokia X2, the newest addition to the expanding Nokia X family of affordable Smartphones designed to introduce the “next billion” people to the mobile Internet and cloud services. The Nokia X2 represents the rapid evolution of the Nokia X family, delivering an enhanced experience across apps, hardware and the user interface. The Nokia X2 offers stunning design, a more visually striking Fastlane, more Microsoft services, and upgraded specifications including a 4.3-inch Clear Black display, front-facing camera for video calling and 5MP rear camera with autofocus and flash. At a suggested retail price of just PKR 15,400, the Nokia X2 is a compelling choice for a new generation of smartphone buyers.
Like the Nokia X, the new Nokia X2 provides access to a world of Android apps and popular Microsoft services, while allowing people to switch between their favorite apps with the Fastlane feature. The Nokia X2 delivers an even more intuitive, smoother user experience powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 200 processor featuring a dual core 1.2 GHz CPU and 1 GB of RAM. The Nokia X2 debuts the next-generation Nokia X Software Platform 2.0 and major enhancements to the user interface. People can choose between three types of screens to facilitate navigation: the colorful “home” with resizable tiles; Fastlane to access recent apps and future calendar items; and a new Lumia-inspired apps list, from which people can pin items to the home screen. A pull-down notifications tab also allows people to glance at connectivity options as well as actionable items, such as software updates available for download. A new home key and visual multitasking complete the experience.
“The Nokia X family is going from strength to strength, with the Nokia X smartphone achieving No. 1 selling status in Pakistan, and other emerging markets*,”said Kamran Masood, Communications Manager, Microsoft Devices Pakistan. “The Nokia X2 elevates the Nokia X experience with a stellar new design, ease of use and new Microsoft experiences. We’re proud to continue to bring smartphone innovation to lower and lower price points.”
As a gateway to Microsoft services, the Nokia X family is driving strong uptake of services such as Skype and OneDrive, while complementing the Lumia family of Smartphones. The Nokia X2 will debut with Outlook.com, Skype and OneDrive pre-loaded, with more available from the Nokia Store, including the Bing Search app. For those of you who are in for buying a new smartphone that not only looks funky and cool but also at the same time doesn’t put too much pressure on your wallets, the Nokia X2 is just the device.
