As expected, Microsoft has just formalized the second generation of the Nokia X series with X2 smartphone.
In April, the Nokia X had left an impression frankly mixed, mainly because of a poor performance and autonomy. The first smartphone from Nokia/Microsoft based on an Android kernel showed limitation, even for its price but until today, when the Nokia X2 has been announced.
Available before the end of the third quarter of 2014 at a price of €129.9, the Nokia X2 seems to benefit from significant physical improvements. It is switched from a SoC Qualcomm double-core 1GHz to a double-core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM instead of 512 MB of RAM. The screen is now 4.3" instead of 4'', but retains the same definition (480 x 800 pixels). Good news is that the photo sensor in the front is available this time, while the rear camera is now 5 megapixels. The battery goes to 1800 mAh instead of 1500 mAh in Nokia X1. For rest, all the same thickness and weight is revised upwards.
The design remains faithful against by the first model, with very straight angles and a wide range of flashy colors. It also includes an midway interface between Windows Phone and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating system with some improvements.
