Nokia has introduced its X family of Android smartphones earlier this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014 and has confirmed that all three handsets will be available for purchase globally with a few exceptions.
Nokia X is the first device in the series to go on sale and the Finnish company stated during its press conference that the smartphone would be immediately available for purchase in Asia-Pacific, Europe, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa for only €90 ($125) outright.
The other two Android smartphones announced by Nokia are slight improvements over the standard X model that’s now up for sale in the region mentioned earlier.
Nokia X+ and Nokia XL have been confirmed to arrive on the market in early Q2 for €100 ($135) and €110 ($150) off contract. However, it appears that some retailers prefer to price the first Nokia smartphones slightly higher than the recommended price.
The folks over at Phonearena report that Nokia X+ and Nokia XL are now available for pre-order in Spain via Amazon. The giant retailer asks €119 ($165) for the former and €129 ($177) for the latter, which is a bit higher than the amount announced by Nokia on Monday.
Those who wish to pre-order any of the two devices should know that the Nokia X+ is available in black and green, while the Nokia XL is only available in green.
Although the smartphones are listed on Amazon Spain, the retailer claims that it can ship orders in “selected countries.” We’re almost certain that these “selected countries” do not include the United States, Canada, Japan and Korea.
These regions have been skipped by the Finnish handset maker, so if you are living in one of the countries mentioned earlier don’t expect any of the Nokia X smartphones to be available through official channels.
Obviously, there are methods that will allow you to get your hands on a Nokia X affordable Android smartphone, so if you really think it is worth it, you can import one from overseas.
On a side note, Amazon Spain does not mention when exactly the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL will hit shelves and states that these products are directly sold through its official channels, so no third-party seller is involved.
Keep in mind that Amazon’s pre-sale prices are guaranteed, so if the devices are discounted later on, customers who pre-order the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL for €119 ($165) and €129 ($177), respectively, will get them at the lowest price.
