Nokia, the past leader in mobile manufacturing and the company which is now owned by Microsoft launched their first ever Android based smartphone few months back at Mobile World Congress 2014. The launch of an Android device from Nokia was the dream of millions.
However, Nokia X took no time to become the most hyped device of the year 2013. The leaks started with some specifications and went on to design leak and soon after all the leaks, the original device’s images were leaked making the world more curious about it.
Nokia X family’s launch was the biggest event ever held by Nokia for the launch of their smartphones. However, with the launch, it was evident that it’s just a beginning of a new era of Android by Nokia. Many expected and are still expecting that Nokia will soon launch another addition to its Nokia X family with much better improvements which they failed to provide in the past versions.
I want to reveal that Nokia has just teased a new image at their Conversations Blog which directly indicated the launch of upcoming Nokia X2 device’s launch. Even the company has added the event’s date to the calendar i.e. 24th of June 2014.
But, before the launch the phone’s specifications and benchmarks have been leaked and recently the device was even listed on a Chinese website which was taken down after few hours. The website reported that the Nokia is working to add a home button into the new addition to Nokia X family.
The device will come with a physical home button and a back button as well or it could be a multi-tasking button which was absent in the late edition of the device. We can’t say anything clearly at present and let’s wait for the launch day. The device is expected to be priced between Rs11,000 – 15,000.
The image and the benchmarks of the device were clearly listed on the site which stated that there is much up-gradation in the device when it comes to specification section. The images also revealed that the processor of the device has been changed to Snapdragon 200 SoC.
Specifications of Nokia X2
- 4.3-inch (800 x 480 pixels) display
- 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor
- Nokia X software platform based on AOSP Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean)
- Dual SIM

The above mentioned specifications of the device have been predicted and are expected to arrive in Nokia X2 this 24th of June 2014. When we look at the design part of the device there is not any noticeable change taken place. Maybe this time Nokia has planned something extra for the device. Not just this, the XDA developers are already ready to grab the device in hand and root it for installing the Google Play services like they did with Nokia X just after its launch.
