As per a report, two Nokia phones with model numbers TA-1099 and TA-1109 have passed 3C certification in China which are said to be the two variants of Nokia X. Although the 3C certification did not reveal much, the certification has revealed that the alleged Nokia X will be enabled with 5V/2A power supply which will lack fast charging. The devices come with a charger supporting 10W charging output. This counters the initial speculations of the Nokia X being a new mid-range smartphone from HMD Global with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The models also appear to have 4G LTE support based on TD-LTE standard.
Details on the specifications of the Nokia X are scarce at the moment. However, if we go by past reports, the two variants of the upcoming smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon and MediaTek SoC respectively. To recall, the original Nokia X was powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor and was based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It featured a 4-inch IPS display and supported dual SIM cards.
Nokia X is said to be a 2018 edition of the Nokia X which was launched in 2014. The older Nokia X was the first entry-level smartphone that runs on Android OS with Nokia X platform on top of it. However, the smartphone was a massive failure as it didn’t feature Google Play Store, among others making it not-so-smart-phone overall. However, little is known about the upcoming smartphone and it is not known whether HMD will launch it only for Asian market or it will be available for other markets as well.
Meanwhile, HMD Global rolled out Android Oreo 8.1 update to its Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 (2018) smartphones. Both the smartphones were recently launched in India with Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. The Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 6 (2018) are priced at 25,999 and 16,999 respectively.
