There has been a Nokia phone which has been the centre of talks for a long time now. The phone we are talking about here is the Nokia X. The new device which is still pending for an official confirmation has however received certification from wireless authority China Compulsory Certification (CCC) that oversees the pricing of the phone and ensures that the device is righteously priced. The main highlight of the listing is the fact that the Nokia X will come with a 10W charger that will have a standard 5V/ 2A charging rate. The launch of the phone in China has been fixed to be held on April 27.
This report comes from Nokiamobi.net who pointed out the CCC listing and expanded on it, giving their speculations on the same. According to their theory the Nokia X which will come with a bundled 5V/ 2A charger on the two models- TA-1109 and TA-1099 and won’t support any fast charging technology. This is a contrary news to what many people were expecting.
Initially there were rumours that the Nokia X is going to be another new instalment in the mid-range price segment. However, the absence of the fast charging capabilities points to the direction that the Nokia X is going to be another low-end phone with just decent specifications. HMD Global has also put in 4G LTE support based on TD-LTE standard in this phone. This has finally put an end to the thoughts of the Nokia X coming with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
This new listing on the CCC website hasn’t revealed details about the specifications and performance of the device, however, it’s being expected that the Nokia X will come with Snapdragon and MediaTek SoC. As per the reports, both the models which will show up on the Chinese market are speculated to be 2018 versions of the Nokia X launched in February 2014.
To give you a hint about what to expect on the Nokia X 2018 version – the previous 2014 version of the Nokia X came with dual-SIM support and ran on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The phone sported a 4-inch IPS display at that time and was driven by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood.
