Introducing the new Nokia X2

Microsoft recently announced the Nokia X2 smartphone, picking up from the Nokia X Android powered smartphone that was released just 4 months ago. Offering the a translucent plastic layer around the existing colourful polycarbonate along with slightly upgraded tech specs. This includes a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, up to 32GB microSD support, a 4.3-inch ClearBlack LCD display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution, 5MP rear camera with LED flash and autofocus, VGA front camera and a removable 1800 mah battery. Instead of just a capacitive back key on the front, there is now also a home key as well.

The Nokia X2 gets a translucent plastic layer but retains the same colourful look

The Nokia X2 weighs in at 150g and 11.1mm thin (which is quite chunky) but for a full tech specs comparison check out our Nokia X vs Nokia X2 comparison tool. The real kicker is that the Nokia X2 is also packing a new X Platform 2 which offers a new tiled user interface, Fastlane panes and perhaps some camera enhancements. Unfortunately, the X Platform 2.0 is not backwards compatible, so you can't download and install it on your Nokia X or Nokia Xl smartphone. As usual, the Nokia X2 supports 3G and is priced at around $134 (RM432). No news yet when Nokia Malaysia might be bringing the Nokia X2 over but it should give other entry-level smartphones a run for the money. For now, check out the videos below:
