Nokia X2 gets Updated to 2.1 with Google Services Support, Updated Here Maps, Camera Improvements and More

Nokia X2, the last device launched before the Nokia X Platform was announced to be discontinued received a major update update which pushes the current software version to and brings a bunch of much-needed improvements such as the Google Services support and a better mapping experience with the updated Here maps app. It seems Microsoft is working hard to give the users a satisfactory experience before the support for them is taken down.

New Features in Nokia X Platform Update

The software update is being seeded to the Dual SIM Nokia X2 devices (RM-1013) and is available globally. The official change-log notices the following major changes, but there must be more:

  • Camera –  Capture fast-moving objects with the new Smart Mode, and create unique photos by using the Action shot, Best shot, or Motion blur options.
  • Lock Screen – Make your phone more personal than ever with live wallpapers and new lock screen widgets.
  • OneDrive & OneNote Added – Keep your life synced with OneDrive and OneNote. Get up to 15 GB of personal storage space on OneDrive, and sync up to 500 notes to OneNote.
  • Google Services Support – Access your favorite Google services. You can now sync your Google contacts, and access your Gmail inbox. (Does it also support Play Store? Somebody please confirm)
  • Updated Here Maps – Find your way anywhere with HERE Maps – get turn-by-turn voice guidance with a free global navigation license. Requires additional HERE Maps update from Store.
  • Updated Nokia Store – Updated Store – new design to help you find content more easily, and better integration with 3rd-party stores.
  • Calendar, Call Rejection, Parental Controls and Misc – Added local calendar support, call reject with a message, parental controls for Store, landscape support for mail and messaging, and auto-configuration of mail accounts.
