Nokia X2 Leaks with 1GB of RAM

In February, Nokia unveiled to the world its first device running under the Android operating system, in the form of Nokia X, which has been already accompanied by two other devices in the series, namely the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.

As it turns out, the company might be already working on a successor for the handset, one that would hit shelves with better hardware inside, and which could be called Nokia X2. An allegedly leaked AnTuTu benchmark screenshot (available courtesy of baidu), claims that the smartphone will arrive on shelves with 1GB of RAM packed inside, as well as with 4GB of internal memory. Moreover, said screenshot mentions a Qualcomm MSM8210 processor, which could be either a 1.4GHz dual-core processor or a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU. The smartphone can supposedly top 11,827 in the benchmark, which is quite decent when compared to other members of the Nokia X family, as MyNokiaBlog notes. The next-generation Nokia X smartphone was also said to arrive on the market with a dedicated home button, as the back button that the current series of devices includes is said to be rather confusing for some users.

As one can imagine, no official confirmation on the upcoming Nokia X2 has been provided as of now, which means that you’ll need to take the info above with a big grain of salt. The same applies to the render embedded below. However, it will certainly not come too much as a surprise if Microsoft indeed released a new Nokia X series of handsets either later this year or in early 2015, especially considering the success that the original lineup has already seen. When announcing the Nokia X series, the Finnish company said that these devices were meant to push Windows Phone ahead, not to prove competitors for it. The same as the Asha series, they were designed for first-time smartphone users coming from feature phones.

Nokia’s Devices & Services division has become part of Microsoft in the meantime, yet it seems that the Redmond-based company might actually continue launching new Android phones in the series, and that Nokia X2 could be one of the first. As mentioned above, no official confirmation on the matter has emerged as of now, so we’ll treat this as a rumor for the time being. However, more info on the matter might emerge soon, so keep an eye on this space to learn whether the rumor will pan out or not.
