The smartphone also features a 5-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 2,000mAh battery. The software is what gets the most attention, as the device runs on a forked version of Android called Nokia Software X. The UI borrows a lot of elements from Windows Phone and the company’s Asha smartphones and also replaces Google’s services with that of its own or Microsoft’s.
