We’ve seen Nokia announce the successor to the X, X+, and XL line-up of phones yesterday. The X2 runs Nokia X OS 2.0, which brings some improvements to the table over the initial version of the software platform. Among these new features you’ll find the ability to display four tiles side by side, the apps list, as well as a brand new user interface for the camera.

If you are among those who purchased one of the initial devices, you’ll be sad to find out that Nokia X OS 2.0 will not be available as an update for you. The Nokia X, X+, and XL will, however, get more updates to fine tune the experience, as we’re being reassured by Nokia. The reason behind this move is, according to the official wording, hardware-related. This pretty much resembles the move Microsoft has pulled with Windows Phone in the past, where the new version of the OS was not available on older (legacy) hardware.

Here’s the statement from Nokia:

“Because of the necessary hardware upgrades, the Nokia X software platform 2.0 won’t be available on Nokia X, Nokia X+ or Nokia XL. However, more updates will be coming to further improve the experience of those devices in the coming months.”
