Nokia introduced a new family of smartphones, the Nokia X series of phones. The first three phones in the family – the Nokia X, X+ and XL – run on the new Nokia X software platform, that is based on Google’s Android.

The company announced three Nokia X handsets, the X, X+, and XL. They all have a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, an 800×480 screen, 4GB internal storage, and microSD expansion. The X has 512MB RAM, the X+ and XL both have 768MB. The X and X+ both have a 4 inch screen and a 3MP camera. The XL bumps the screen to 5 inches and the camera to 5MP. They will all be available in a bunch of colors, and will all support dual SIMs.

The downside here is that Nokia X users can’t have access to the Google Play Store for apps. However, the phone will run Android apps, but Nokia will curate a list of such apps. A recommended source for the apps is the Nokia store, says the company. In other words, the new platform, Nokia X, is based on the Android Open Source project (AOSP).

According to Mr. Elop, the market has “shifted dramatically” and the company needs to quickly address the sub-$100 category of mobile phones in “growth markets.”.

According to analysts, this is Nokia’s submission of the fact that buyers of low-end mobile phones in countries like India prefer an Android-based operating system over anything else.

“The X family serves a specific purpose – it is a feeder system into our Lumia line of smartphones. It also addresses the gap between Asha and Lumia,” Mr. Elop said, while addressing reporters here on Monday.
