Connectivity

The Nokia X is a mid-tier smartphone announced as part of the Nokia X family in February 2014, running on the Nokia X platform. The device shipped on the same day as the unveiling, with Nokia targeting the product for emerging markets. It is currently sold and maintained by Microsoft Mobile. On 17 July 2014, Microsoft announced that it would discontinue the line.[3]

The X was previously under development known as Normandy, Project N, the Asha on Linux project and MView.

Unveiling[edit]

The phone was unveiled by Stephen Elop at the 2014 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Contrary to previous leaks, two variants, Nokia X[4] and Nokia X+[5] were released, with the Nokia X+ having 768 MB of RAM, as opposed to 512 MB of RAM, as well as with a microSD card included in the box.[6]

A third phone, the Nokia XL, was announced, with a larger screen, front-facing camera, rear flash, and longer battery runtime.[7]

Very soon after release, a developer had rooted the device, and enabled the installation of Google's apps and services.[8]

Criticism[edit]

The Nokia X was heavily criticized for not having a home button, but the error is being fixed in the next Nokia X phones.[9] The newly introduced Nokia X2 had fixed this.
