Nokia X2 Is Official, Brings 4.3 Display And Snapdragon 200

The Nokia X2 is now official and is a proper evolutionary step from the original Nokia X. There are updates both on the inside and out, but most notably, the Nokia X2 packs a larger 4.3" ClearBlack display.

Its resolution, however, is still 800 x 480 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 217ppi. Under the hood of the X2, there's an updated elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with a 1.2Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core Cortex-A7 Central Processing Units (CPU) and 1GB of RAM. A welcome recent addition is the Home button located next to the Back button under the display.

The battery of the Nokia X2 has 1,800mAh power (300mAh more than the Nokia X's) and is rated at 4 hours Internet browsing time on cellular network. Internal storage is 4GB paired with a microSD card slot for up to 32GB expansion.

With measures of 121.7 x 68.3 x 11.1mm and a weight of 150 grams the X2 is a bit chubbier than its predecessor. The Nokia X weighs 129 grams, so we're yet to see how the Nokia X2 will feel in the hand with the additional hole in its belt.

In terms of connectivity, there's Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and dual SIM card slots offering dual stand-by. At the back, there's a 5MP autofocus capturing camera with Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, which is teamed up with a front-facing capturing camera for Skype calls.

Nokia has also updated its custom Android launcher, which boasts more useful multitasking, the option to see most used apps and updated Fastlane. The free HERE Maps subscription for voice-guided navigation is also present, while notification drawer now packs a refreshed shortslit menu.

Hopefully, Nokia will push a software update to the original X with the recent features, but no official word on that has been shared yet.

The Nokia X2 retails for €99 (before taxes and subsidies) and is available now in glossy green, orange black, yellow and white. There are matt blackgrey color later on.
