Nokia XL to debut in India tomorrow; pricing and availability details coming soon


While Nokia X was launched last month for Rs 8,599, the XL and X+ were likely to reach Indian shores by May. Now, the company is all set to showcase the Nokia XL, and has sent out invites for events in Delhi and Mumbai to be held on May 1 and May 3, respectively.

 

The invite states ‘Fastlane to your Android Apps’ along with #GoNokiaXL, clearly hinting that the company plans to bring the XL to India soon. However, there is no mention of the X+.

 

Take a look at the invite below:

The Nokia XL sports a 5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels of resolution, and is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon processor that clocks at 1GHz. It comes equipped with a 5 megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera for Skype calls and selfies. Its 4GB onboard storage can be expanded further up to 32GB via microSD card slot.

 

The connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS with A-GPS. It runs Android, but the login and app data is said to be tied to Microsoft’s cloud services, and not Google as in any other Android phone. The phones run a version of Android Open Source Project, with access to sideloading of apps, third-party app stores and Nokia’s own store. You will find Microsoft essentials instead of Google services.
