Dual-core, 1 GHz, Qualcomm Snapdragon™ S4, the same that was adopted by Lumia. It will deliver good performance on android, as it was serving well on windows platform with Nokia Lumia previously.
512 MB ram that is a bit less for myself to use the mobile for heavy gaming or processing an huge application. But the mobile is supported up by a 4 GB ROM (in-built storage) that could help us have lots of apps inside our device. It also support upto 32 GB of external storage using MicroSD.

This is truly a mark on the history of Nokia mobiles, since it is the first android device from a Symbian based company that was once a great seller within India & several other Asian Countries. But Nokia X brought joy to the people of my kind to enjoy android with an efficient company mobile.
The price is very decent but could have added few more features like : Fivepoint Touch, 1 GB Ram, Built-in PlayStore, Completely android OS based like Gingerbread, ICS, Jellybean…
But its for the sake mobile stability that Nokia has adopted their very own Android OS from the Google Android Source Code.
It could sure have, massive sales all over the world, and we hearty people welcome the Nokia Back to our hands ♥.
We hope good from Nokia’s X devices. Love you all.
