Nokia officially announced its first ever family of Android smartphones. Meet the X family of smartphones consisting of the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.
Don’t make any mistake about it, this is not a Google-certified project and thus the X phones don’t run the Google Play Services such as the Play Store, Gmail and Chrome. Nokia and Microsoft have worked hard though to integrate their core services and apps.
As a result, all phones have the excellent Nokia HERE Maps, as well as the Microsoft One Drive (former SkyDrive) and Skype. Users will be free to sideload any Android app they want and can download new apps easily from the dedicated Nokia store and Yandex Store, which is quite popular in Russia.
The Nokia X+ and XL share the same chipset – a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 with 768MB of RAM. The Nokia X is the only one with just 512MB of RAM.
