All three smartphones ship with “forked” Android Jelly Bean platform
Nokia has just announced its first Android smartphones, the Nokia X, X+ and XL, which are aimed at emerging markets. All three handsets are priced very low, so customers will be able to grab them for €90 ($125), €100 ($135) and 110 ($150), respectively.The Nokia X is available starting this week, while the other two Android smartphones will go on sale beginning early Q2. As mentioned earlier, Nokia X family of smartphones is based on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and runs the Fastlane UI, which is currently included in the Asha series.
None of them offers access to Google Play Store. Instead, the Finnish company has confirmed that users will be able to download apps from Nokia Store, Yandex and other third-party application stores. In addition, users will be able to sideload any Android app via SD card.
Nokia X family of smartphones features the same design layout as the Lumia series, so expect the same unibody, sleek form factor that made Nokia's Windows Phone handsets so popular. Check out the gallery and let us know what you think of Nokia's new Android phones.
