In the run-up to MWC 2014, when giants such as Samsung and LG are sharpening their claws, Nokia seems to be prepared for its own show. In a desperate effort to enter the Android segment, Nokia now plans to unveil its first smartphone with this operating system.
Code-named Normandy, the Nokia X has seen leaks on Weibo website for Nokia. Interestingly, the images are not very predictive and do nothing but reveal an X mark. However, insiders are anticipating the Finnish makers to release two separate smartphones at MWC on the 24th this month.
Touted as a mash-up between Nokia Lumia and the pocktable Nokia Asha, the Nokia X could come loaded with specs such as:
LG G Pro 2 was christened as the Best Smartphone of MWC 2013, but the handset looks more like a LG G2 clone. One visible similarity is the rear touch button which Google left when G2 used the Nexus 6 template.
The G Pro 2 will surely reveal a great Nexus 6 model- boasting of specs:
RAM of 3GB
Adreno 330 graphics
Removable 3200mAh battery
Wireless connection with NFC and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.26 GHz
Internal storage of 16GB or 32GB via microSD support
Thus, G Pro 2 is the next Nexus with Google’s signature specs like removable battery and memory expansion slot. With 5.9 inches Full HD 1080p resolution screen and super high display panel, the G Pro 2 features 13MP on rear killer camera specs and brilliant sound clarity.
For unlocking, users just need to tap on the blank screen and G Pro 2 will come into life. A security spec is coded tool content lock–the device’s way of securing files will preserve it just for user only. LG offers one-hand navigation by bringing down the display to 3.4inch.
LG has come up with the idea of making Dual Browser for G Pro 2 users. Running on Android Kitkat 4.4, the device can be run on higher version too, if launched.
