NEW DELHI: Microsoft Devices today launched the Nokia XL, the flagship large screen offering from the X family, for Rs 11,489 in India.

The X family of handsets include Nokia's range of affordable smartphones that run Android apps.

The new Nokia XL also features 'Fastlane', which allows users to select what appears on their Fastlane feed, read notifications from their social networks and update their status from within the feature.

"With the Nokia X Family, we look to offer a variety of choices to our consumers at different price points. After receiving a great response with the Nokia X, which introduced the category to this market, we are now bringing the much awaited Nokia XL and X+ to our consumers," Nokia India (a Microsoft Mobile Oy subsidiary) Director Sales Raghuvesh Sarup said.

Apps like Facebook, LINE, Picsart, Plants vs Zombies 2, Real Football 2014, Skype, Spotify, Swift key, Twitter, Viber, Vine and WeChat will be available with the handset.

Additionally, as a first for Nokia customers around the world, the company is making available BBM on the Nokia X family of devices.

Buyers will also have access to up to 500 MB of free data usage as part of a bundling offer with Airtel, which can be used to download apps via the Nokia Store and the 1Mobile store.
