We sometime remind our readers that the Chinese mobile market is a very important one for every smartphone manufacturer out there. China holds the highest number of smartphone users in the world, and companies like Apple, Samsung and LG are in a competition to win over the market.
While we were wondering what smartphones will be a hit in China next, we haven’t really considered the possibility that the Nokia X will make the list. But, believe it or not, the X is already a very successful device, despite the fact that the handset is not even out yet. Join us below for more details.
Nokia X Pre-Orders Surpasses the 1 Million Mark
The Nokia X is the first Android-powered smartphone to come out of the Finnish manufacturer’s factory gates, and although the OS is forked (read: not pure Android), the X is a pretty interesting device nonetheless.
The handset went official during the Mobile World Congress, and earlier this week -on March 10 to be exact- the Nokia X became available for pre-purchase in China. Today, Nokia unveiled, via its official Weibo account, that the number of pre-orders has surpassed 1 million. In just 4 days, people!
The Nokia X is expected to go on sale in China on March 25, and until then we’re pretty confident that the number of people who will pre-order the smartphone will continue to rise. In other words, the X seems to be a pretty big hit in China, and that might make things very interesting for the competition.
The Nokia X features an IPS LCD 4.0 inch display with a resolution of 480 x 800, a Snapdragon S4 Play dual-core processor clocked at 1 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage expandable by up to an additional 32 via microSD, a 3.15 MP camera and a 1,500 mAh battery. In other words, we’re looking at a pretty low-end device with a very attractive price tag.
Are any of you interested in buying the Nokia X?
