Nokia X is the base model of Nokia’s line of Android based smartphones. It will be running Nokia’s forked version of Android based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and also called Nokia X OS. Nokia X features a Windows Phone like UI and drops Google’s services for services from Nokia and Microsoft.
Nokia Android Phones
Although Nokia X runs Android, it is not Google’s Android. Instead, Nokia has heavily customised the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) to build its own Android called the Nokia X OS. However, Nokia X will support over 70% of current Android apps. It will not support the Google Play store, instead Nokia will offer a store with all supported apps.
The Nokia X 1.0 OS will be running on a 1GHz dual-core processor with 512MB of RAM and 4GB built-in storage. The phone will be coming with services from Microsoft and Nokia. Microsoft’s OneDrive will be the default cloud storage service, while Nokia’s Here Maps will be the default mapping app. BBM and Skype will also be available for the Nokia X.
Nokia X also supports dual-SIM.

Nokia X features a 4.0-inch touch display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. A 3.2 megapixels camera is provided on the rear of the phone. The camera can record 480p video.
