Nokia introduces X2 Dual SIM with 4.3-inch display

Nokia X2 dual SIM is what Microsoft is calling the first of its next generation X series of smartphones running on a forked version of Android. The 4.3-inch handset looks like your typical mash-up of the Lumia, Asha and X and now sports a Home option beside the Back button.

The Nokia X, X+ and XL don’t have a Home key and Microsoft hints that these three are incompatible with the Nokia X platform 2.0 update because of this. The new smartphone also happens to have higher RAM than the exiting trio and a more powerful Snapdragon SoC with a dual core 1.2GHz Cortex A7 processor.

The device features a 5MP camera and a low resolution one on the front for selfies and video chats.
