It’s only been a few months since Nokia announced the Nokia X, but it looks like the Android-powered handset is already getting a successor. A new device called the Nokia X2 was spotted in an AnTuTu benchmark today, revealing an updated version of the low-cost smartphone with noticeable hardware improvements.
The alleged Nokia X2 will apparently offer a 4.3-inch 800 x 480-pixel display, a Snapdragon 200 processor, a 5-megapixel camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage and run a heavily modified version of Android 4.3. Compare that the original Nokia X, which comes equipped with a 4-inch 800 x 480-pixel display, a slower Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, a 3-megapixel camera and runs Android 4.1 out of the box.
We’re a bit surprised to hear that Microsoft plans to move forward with the Nokia X line after acquiring the phone-maker earlier this year. Former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop promised the Android-powered device wouldn’t be scrapped after Microsoft took over, but we didn’t expect a follow-up device to leak out so soon. Of course, one leaked benchmark is still a far cry from an official confirmation, though we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for any more news surrounding the alleged Nokia X2.
