Nokia XL goes up for sale in multiple markets


While the Nokia X is easily the Android most associated with Nokia’s recent experimentation with the platform, its sibling devices, the Nokia X+ and XL, are the more heavyweight options. The X+ boosts available RAM and throws in a microSD card, while XL does all that while also upgrading to a five-inch screen, increasing main camera resolution to 5MP, and adding a front-facer, which the other two lack altogether. The Nokia X has already hit the scene, but now Nokia is easing its way into availability for the rest, and today we learn about the start of sales for the Nokia XL.

Sales of the XL are now open in Asia-Pacific and India, Middle East, and Africa regions. Like the other X family members, the XL supports dual-SIM operation and is available in a good half-dozen color options.

While the XL is still a very low-priced model, it doesn’t come in quite as affordably as the X itself (all those upgrades ain’t free), and while the price will vary based on market, look for it to be in the $130-150 range. For a five-inch smartphone (even if it is one with just a WVGA resolution), that’s not half bad.

The Nokia XL may come with Nokia’s own forked version of Android, but with a little effort, the same techniques that help turn the Nokia X into a more traditional-looking Android handset should be applicable to the XL, just in case you choose to go that route.
