Nokia XL and X+ both have 4GB MicroSD cards pre-installed


While the Nokia X is already on sale in some markets around the world, the two other Android-based handsets that Nokia announced last month - Nokia X+ and Nokia XL - will be released a bit later. The good news is that, unlike the Nokia X, the XL and X+ will have 4GB MicroSD cards pre-installed, so users don’t have to worry about the rather low internal memory that the phones are offering (4GB). Nokia confirmed this today on its Conversations blog. 

Both the Nokia X+ and Nokia XL should be launched in the coming weeks, or maybe months. The X+ is similar to the Nokia X, but has more RAM (768MB vs. 512MB). The XL - seen in the gallery below - has 768MB of RAM, too, and is larger, sporting a 5-inch WVGA IPS display, a 5MP rear camera, and a 2,000 mAh battery.

Nokia also confirmed other things about its X line of handsets. According to the company, there “aren’t plans” to bring its PureView technology to the Nokia X phones - but this was expected, since we’re talking about entry-level, cheap devices here, and PureView is reserved for high-end Windows Phone Lumias. As for why the X line isn’t based on a newer version of Android (it’s using 4.1.2 Jelly Bean), Nokia simply says that it chose “the version with the broadest mainstream reach.”

4 GB Sd Card is just $6 man, at least give us 16 GB. Remember, Moto G has 4.5" HD display, quad core CPU, 2000 mAh battery, 1 GB of RAM and costs less than $200

Think about it for a moment. 4gb on any smartphone today is a way to kill off a smartphone. It only had a little less then 2gb of storage for users on the Nokia X. What can you do with that? So it makes sense that they are going to include a microsd card. I don't know what Nokia is thinking about these days when they release new phones.

We're not sure about that. Perhaps the files used by Nokia uses less storage space?

Well, I have like 3 different micro SDHC cards all bigger than 4GB. But lowend buyers, probably won't bother getting or need a bigger one, esp in developing countries.

This reminds me of the good old days. The Nokia Xpress Music 5530 came with a 4GB microSD. xD

maybe that was their plan - to make Android look cheap and discredit them...

You are missing a point. They are also highlighting Android's strengths. Android can be customized to look like almost anything under the sun. WP on the other hand will remain stuck to their (not so) Modern UI.
