Nokia X Launching in India on March 10

Nokia’s new family of Android powered Nokia X smartphones are already available in some markets and it looks like the next stop is India, one of the launch markets Nokia promised back during Mobile World Congress. A press invite from Nokia India promising a new “Xperience” on Monday, March 10, Windows Phone Central reports, where the company will likely announce local pricing and availability, and perhaps even discuss the pending launches of the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.

The new line of smartphones comes in three models. The basic Nokia X comes with 4-inch display, 512MB of RAM, a 3-megapixel camera, and a Qualcomm 8225 Snapdragon dual-core processor. Next up is the Nokia X+, which offers similar specs but a bit of extra RAM. Finally, the Nokia XL comes with a 5-inch display, and a 5-megapixel camera.

Nokia initially announced the cost of its X devices last month in Europe, pricing the Nokia X at 89 euros and the X+ at 99 euros. It’s still unclear how much the new phones will cost in India, though one report puts the price at 8500 Rupees (roughly $140). The new family of phones will have to compete against low-end Android handsets as well as older iPhone models which Apple sells in the region for cheap, so Nokia needs to get the price just right if it hopes to succeed.
