Nokia X Receives Certification in China; Affordable Price Tag Likely
Nokia X is yet to receive an official confirmation, but it recently surfaced in China with a launch dateslated for April 27. And now, two of the long-rumoured Nokia X models have received a certification from wireless authority China Compulsory Certification (CCC) that points to an affordable price bracket. The listing shows that both Nokia X models will come with a regular 10W charger that will have a standard 5V/ 2A charging rate.
The CCC listing, as spotted by Nokiamob.net, suggests that with the bundled 5V/ 2A charger, the Nokia X models TA-1109 and TA-1099 won’t support any fast charging technology. This counters the initial speculations of the Nokia X being a new mid-range smartphone from HMD Global with up to 6GB of RAM and 64GB onboard storage. The models also appear to have 4G LTE support based on TD-LTE standard.
Details including the specifications and build quality of the Nokia X aren’t revealed by the CCC listing. Nevertheless, it is now safe to say that the Nokia X will debut as a new low-end device from HMD Global. The two models surfaced on the CCC site are likely to be Snapdragon and MediaTek SoC variants of the upcoming Nokia X. Moreover, both models are likely to the 2018 version of the original Nokia X that was launched in February 2014.
The original Nokia X had dual-SIM support and was based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) corresponding to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The handset had a 4-inch IPS display and was powered by a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor.
