Late February, at Mobile World Congress, Nokia announced their new X family of Android devices, promising that the smartphones will be "coming soon" on the market. Now we hear that the Nokia X release date in India has been set for this month.

The Nokia X series smartphones were created for the emerging markets and India is one of the primary targets of the Finland-based phone maker.

Nokia has released a press invite to an "Xperience a new beginning" event that will be hosted March 10 by Mr. P Balaji VP & MD at Nokia India.

At the Barcelona-based tech fair where the new Android-powered Nokia smartphones were introduced, the representatives of the company said that the price of the Nokia X has been set at €89, while the Nokia X+ will be €10 more, being priced at €99.

What are their technical specifications? I'm glad you've asked. The Nokia X features a 4.0-inch IPS LCD display with 480 x 800 resolution, 4 GB of microSD-expandable storage, 512 MB of RAM, 3.15 MP primary camera, dual-core 1 GHz Snapdragon S4 Play CPU, and it will run Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.

On the other hand the Nokia X+ arrives with the same 480 x 800 4.0-inch IPS LCD, the same dual-core Qualcomm processor, identical 3.15 MP rear-mounted shooter, 4 GB of native storage, microSD card slot, but it brings 768 MB of RAM compared to X's 512 MB of RAM.

You probably are aware of the fact that the Nokia X smartphones are not Google-certified devices, therefore they will not come pre-installed with Google Play Store, GMail, or other Google services. Nokia has replaced them with their own alternatives: Nokia Here Maps and Nokia App Store.

We are eager to see what will be the price point of the Nokia X smartphones on the Indian market and, if the cheapest mode is priced around INR 7,600, then them might be a real hit.
