Microsoft Devices Group Expands Affordable 

Smartphone Portfolio with the Nokia X2

Delivers compelling introduction to second-generation devices and software platform

Karachi – 24th

addition to the expanding Nokia X family of affordable Smartphones designed to introduce 

the “next billion” people to the mobile Internet and cloud services. The Nokia X2 represents 

the rapid evolution of the Nokia X family, delivering an enhanced experience across apps, 

hardware and the user interface. The Nokia X2 offers stunning design, a more visually 

striking Fastlane, more Microsoft services, and upgraded specifications including a 4.3-

inch Clear Black display, front-facing camera for video calling and 5MP rear camera with 

autofocus and flash. At a suggested retail price of just PKR 15,400, the Nokia X2 is a 

compelling choice for a new generation of smartphone buyers.

Like the Nokia X, the new Nokia X2 provides access to a world of Android apps and popular 

Microsoft services, while allowing people to switch between their favorite apps with the 

Fastlane feature. The Nokia X2 delivers an even more intuitive, smoother user experience 

powered by a Qualcomm®

and 1 GB of RAM. The Nokia X2 debuts the next-generation Nokia X Software Platform 2.0 

and major enhancements to the user interface. People can choose between three types of 

screens to facilitate navigation: the colorful “home” with resizable tiles; Fastlane to access 

recent apps and future calendar items; and a new Lumia-inspired apps list, from which 

people can pin items to the home screen. A pull-down notifications tab also allows people 

to glance at connectivity options as well as actionable items, such as software updates 

available for download. A new home key and visual multitasking complete the experience.

“The Nokia X family is going from strength to strength, with the Nokia X smartphone 

achieving No. 1 selling status in Pakistan, and other emerging markets*,”said Kamran 

Masood, Communications Manager, Microsoft Devices Pakistan. “The Nokia X2 elevates the 

Nokia X experience with a stellar new design, ease of use and new Microsoft experiences. 

We’re proud to continue to bring smartphone innovation to lower and lower price points.” 

As a gateway to Microsoft services, the Nokia X family is driving strong uptake of services 

such as Skype and OneDrive, while complementing the Lumia family of Smartphones. The 

Nokia X2 will debut with Outlook.com, Skype and OneDrive pre-loaded, with more available 

from the Nokia Store, including the Bing Search app.

New-to-the-lineup services including OneNote and Yammer are also available to download 

free** from the Nokia Store. OneNote allows people to create notes and save them to the 

cloud through OneDrive, while Yammer makes collaborating with people online as easy as 

posting to a social network. The option to automatically back up the camera roll to OneDrive 

takes full advantage of 15 GB of free cloud storage now available through the service, for 

safeguarding photos, videos, documents and more.

The Nokia X2 will also introduce new third-party titles such as LINE Ranger, Brewster and 

Findery. Instagram, We Chat, Skype, Benji Bananas Adventures and many more are already 

available on the redesigned, easy-to-navigate Nokia Store — the place for finding the 

highest-quality Android apps for the Nokia X family. 

The Nokia X2 features a seamless monobody and showcases a new approach to the design 

of the exchangeable back covers that fuses a brightly colored core with a translucent outer 

layer. The overall result is a durable device that appears lit from within. 

The Nokia X2 will be available at launch in glossy orange, black and green, with glossy 

yellow, white and matte dark grey coming later to the lineup.

* No. 1 in its price point in Russia, Kenya, Nigeria; No.1 overall in Pakistan (all rankings Gfk)
