Microsoft launches XL in China with 4G LTE support

By | July 30, 2014


Microsoft has launched a 4G version of the Nokia XL in China. The phone gets support for the country’s TD-SCDMA and D-LTE 4G networks and has got a corresponding enhancement in the specs sheet. Also couple of days back we got to know about this Android is the last flagship from Microsoft as they have planned to stop this Microsoft_Google war, I think the reason behind taking this decision is, Microsoft is more concern about Windows Phone devices as they are working to migrate both Windows PC and Phone to increase the productivity among the users.

Also the second reason might be the response they got from China after the launch of Nokia X, and this time also Microsoft is getting nice response from the Chinese people.

More specifically, the phone now houses 1GB of RAM which was earlier 768 MB only with the 3G version. It also couples an revamped Qualcomm MSM8926 Snapdragon 400 chipset with a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU. Up to now, the Nokia XL was only available in India but there were no support for 4G LTE at all.

The 5″ display still rocks a 800 x 480 pixel resolution, and the battery remains 2000 mAh. At the back, there’s a 5MP snapper capable of 720p. The new XL 4G is also considerably lighter. The 3G model weighs 190 grams, while the new one tips the scales at 158 grams.

As I already told, this might as well be the last Android smartphone to carry the Nokia branding, as Microsoft CEO Satia Nadella suggested the company is cutting the cord of the X line-up of smartphones along with massive lay-offs, also there is no certain news if the phone will ever go outside of outside China.
