Nokia X Dual SIM Android smartphone price dropped to Rs. 7,729
Roughly a month after its launch in the Indian market, the Nokia X Dual SIM has received a price cut, and is now available at Rs. 7,729 (prices vary to as low as Rs. 7,200 on online retailers) on the company's online store - a drop of roughly Rs. 900.

Notably, the Nokia X - the Finnish giant's first Android-based phone - was launched in India on 10 March at Rs. 8,599 for its dual-SIM variant. The drop in price might presage the imminent launch of the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL, due to launch in a month's time.

The Nokia X is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), and is powered by Microsoft and Nokia services. The highlight of the Nokia X is the highly customised version of Android, with Metro-inspired UI and access to Nokia's own app store.

While there's no access to Google's Play Store, users can side-load Android apps from any third-party source. Nokia has used the AOSP version corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean as the baseline for its operating system.

The Nokia X offers dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) support with dual standby. The first Android phone from Nokia features a 4-inch IPS LCD display with a 480x800 pixel resolution, translating to a pixel density of 233ppi.

The smartphone is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, alongside 512MB of RAM. It sports a 3-megapixel rear camera. The Nokia X handset comes with 4GB of inbuilt storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

The Nokia X supports Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS with A-GPS, EDGE, GPRS and 3G connectivity options. It is backed by a 1500mAh battery, which is rated to deliver up to 13 hours of talk time and up to 672 hours of standby time on 2G network.
