28 May 2014, Manama, Bahrain: Microsoft Devices has today announced the local availability of Nokia XL, part of the new Nokia X family of affordable smartphones that run Android™ apps. The new device combines the world of Android apps, with Nokia’s signature experience and the most popular Microsoft services.
Nokia XL: big, bold and beautiful
The Nokia XL is the premium offering in the Nokia X family. Boasting a 5” display, 5MP rear-facing autofocus camera with flash, and 2MP front-facing camera, it is the ultimate choice for big-screen entertainment. The Nokia XL features the same performance boost as the Nokia X+ but on a larger format. People can also take advantage of the larger screen size, front- and rear-facing cameras to get the most out Skype video calls and video apps like Vine.
The Nokia XL also features the popular Fastlane, a dynamic record of how people use their phone, day by day, moment by moment. It captures everything people love: they need only to swipe once from the home-screen to access Fastlane, see a record of recent activity, and switch between their favourite apps, smoothly.
“Today’s smartphone users demand handsets and services that can respond to their everyday lifestyle requirements and keep with up their social and entertainment needs. Consequently, mobile applications are an essential element for mobile users whose handsets are more than just a phone, they are a lifestyle accessory,” commented Vithesh Reddy, General Manager Lower Gulf, Microsoft Mobile Devices.
Out of the box, they can enjoy signature Nokia experiences including free* HERE Maps, with true offline maps and integrated turn-by-turn navigation, and Nokia MixRadio for free* music streaming and downloadable playlists. The Nokia XL is also an affordable introduction to popular Microsoft services, including free* cloud storage using OneDrive.
