Nokia X budget Android phone launched, priced at $122

Nokia is all set to introduce first android based smartphone dubbed as Nokia X.

Nokia on Monday released that launch of the new Nokia X line of budget phones that use Google's Android operating system rather than the Windows Phone software from Microsoft, which is about to buy Nokia's phone business. The new Nokia X series of smartphones were unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Nokia X, according to some recent leaks, appears to be a mini version of the firm's Lumia Icon smartphone when it comes to design. Furthermore, the smartphone is likely to arrive with a 4-inch TFT display with a resolution of 480x854 (FWVGA) pixels.

A 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor is said to be housed inside the Nokia X. While 1GHz clocking speed is common in many handsets these days, the Finnish firm seems to cut costs by using the older Snapdragon 200 processor.

The Android-based Nokia X might also sport a 5-megapixel rear camera; a microSD card and dual-SIM support, apart from Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

''More and more people are buying smartphones for less that 100 euros,'' said Stephen Elop, Nokia executive vice president, as he presented the new phones at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. ''That sub-100 range is a massive opportunity for us. According to analysts, it will grow four times as fast as rest of smartphone market.''

These smartphone has modest hardware specifications and are likely to be priced between Rs 9,000 and Rs 12,000 in India. The Nokia X is likely to be accessible in India next month, while the other two phones will be accessible in Q2, 2014.
