The Nokia XL was approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center several days ago, so Nokia has the green light to start selling it there.
Since China is the world’s largest smartphone market, Nokia probably hopes to ship a lot of XL handsets there - especially since the Nokia X was sold out within 4 minutes after its Chinese launch (though this does not tell us how many units were sold).
Nokia XL resembles the Nokia X in many aspects. However, the XL is larger, as it sports a 5-inch WVGA display. Other differences include a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and 768MB of RAM. Check out our Nokia XL hands-on for more.
