Nokia X2 has its specs leaked
The Nokia X and its brethren may not have taken the mobile world by storm, but the Finnish company now owned by Microsoft seems intent on releasing a successor for its first ever Android device. Or at least someone at Nokia is busy testing prototypes for the X2.
That’s because the Nokia X2 ran the AnTuTu benchmark recently, which means that we now get a look at its most important specs. A word of warning, though – don’t expect this to be a high-end monster, especially considering how low-end the original X is.
The Nokia X2 has a 4.3-inch 480×800 touchscreen, a 5 MP rear camera, a 0.3 MP front camera, a 1.2 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 4 GB of built-in storage. This prototype ran Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, but that doesn’t mean anything – after all, Nokia is using a forked version of Google’s mobile operating system for the X line, one that is devoid of any services from the search giant.
Its model number is RM-1013, and the X2 upgrades the X’s hardware in a few key respects. The screen is bigger (up from 4″), the rear camera has a higher resolution (up from 3 MP), there’s a front camera that the original didn’t have, the processor is clocked 200 MHz higher, and the amount of RAM has been doubled.
All in all, this looks like a neat update to the Nokia X. That said, it’s obviously still very much low-end. An interesting fact is that its specs are basically identical to those of the recently unveiled Moto E, save for two differences – the E’s higher-res display, and the X2’s front camera (which Motorola’s effort lacks). So maybe the Nokia X2 will be a direct competitor to the Moto E in price too, who knows.
