The cellphone retailer Mobile Store has listed the recently announced Nokia X smartphone on its website. It is stating INR 8,500 as the price-tag of the smartphone but we can’t be certain as Nokia has still not officially revealed the India launch details of the phone. In addition, The Mobile Store has noted that Nokia X will be available beginning March 15.
Originally introduced at the Mobile World Congress last month, Nokia X is the first Android smartphone from the company and comes with features like 4-inch WVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a forked version of Android 4.1.2.
Other features of the phone include 4GB of internal storage, microSD support, dual-SIM support, 5MP rear camera and 1500mAh battery.
We were expecting a slightly lower price-tag, considering Nokia had announced that it plans to sell the phone at 89 euros (INR 7,530). We are hoping to see an official announcement from Nokia in the next few days, which should make the pricing and availability detail clearer. Till then, we will suggest you to avoid ordering the phone. Also, in our view Nokia X isn’t value for money product for INR 8.5K. Want a similarly priced budget Android phone, consider Sony’s Xperia E1 or E dual, which have been announced for India today itself and will be available in the coming days.
