Nokia announced its first Android-app running smartphones - the Nokia X and Nokia X+. The phones pack a 4" Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display and come with Nokia and Microsoft app preloaded.

The Nokia X, X+ and XL are powered by a 1Giga Hertz (GHz) dual-core elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 8225 chipset with 512Mega Bytes (MB) of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and 4GB of internal storage. Happily, it's expandable via the microSD card slot and supports up to 32GB cards.

The Nokia X and X+ feature a 4" 800x480 IPS Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) capacitive touch display making up for a pixel density of 233ppi. However, the Nokia X+ and XL acquire a bump in Random-Access Memory (RAM) to 768MB.

At the back of the Nokia X and X+, there's a 3MP fixed focus capturing camera with both phones weighing 129 grams and pack 1500mAh battery. It's fine for 10.5 hours of 3G talk time and have a maximum standby time of 17 days. Both phones are also capable of maximum music playback of up to 26 hours, while video playback is rated at 8.4 hours before the battery needs a recharge.

The Nokia X features the signature Nokia Glance Screen. A swipe to the correct reveals a list of installed apps, and another one gets you to fastlane. You can reorganize the tiles similarly to Windows Phone 8 UI. They are resizable as well and the larger the tiles get, the more information they display.

Unsurprisingly, the phone doesn't have the Google Play Services installed, so the Play Store isn't available on the Nokia X or Nokia X+. However, Stephen Elop highlighted that users can hold advantage of the Nokia store for Android apps as well as the popular Yandex Store.
