Nokia XL approved in China, could be launched there soon
While the Nokia XL was announced at the same time with the Nokia X and Nokia X+, it’s not available to purchase yet. However, Nokia said that the XL would be released starting this quarter, and it looks like China is among the countries that are going to get it soon - which isn’t a surprise, since China is also one of the first markets where the Nokia X became available.

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.
