Today, the affordable and stylish Nokia X went on sale in the UAE. It’s part of the new Nokia X family of smartphones that offers signature Nokia experiences and runs both popular Microsoft services and Android apps. The Nokia X is a beautifully crafted smartphone available in the bold, bright colors that Nokia is known for. At only 10.4mm thin, the slim, durable design features a 4” scratch-proof display and exchangeable back covers that come in a variety of statement colors. Inside, the device runs on the Nokia X Software Platform and is powered by a 1Ghz dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor.
The Nokia X features two screens: home, which has a fresh, tile-based design and Fastlane. Fastlane keeps a dynamic record of how you use your phone, day by day, moment by moment. It captures everything you love: you need only to swipe once from the homescreen to access Fastlane, see a record of recent activity, and switch between your favorite apps, smoothly. Fastlane has been completely re-imagined for the Nokia X family. You can return a missed call by calling or texting, accept or decline calendar invitations, or control the music player – all from within the Fastlane view. Fastlane is also more customizable and social-friendly than ever. You can select what appears on your Fastlane feed, read notifications from their social networks and update their status from within Fastlane, making the experience even more productive.
Nokia also announced operator billing payment option for Etisalat and du customers in the UAE. Etisalat and du customers with Nokia X phones will have the option to purchase all the latest applications, games and premium content from the Nokia store and pay directly with their mobile account, offering customers a quick, convenient and secure form of payment. The purchased applications can either be charged as part of the customer’s monthly bill for post-paid accounts, or against their pre-paid credit balance.
Out of the box, you can enjoy signature Nokia experiences including free HERE Maps, with true offline maps and integrated turn-by-turn navigation, and Nokia MixRadio for free music streaming and downloadable playlists. The Nokia X is also an affordable introduction to popular Microsoft services, including free cloud storage using OneDrive. Nokia X serves up a lot of awesome features at a great price. You can have one for just AED 439.
