Nuu Mobile’s X5 now available with Konnect global roaming technology and Android Nougat

27th February 2017 - Nuu Mobile, designer and manufacturer of affordable, unlocked and Dual SIM smartphones, today announces the X5 Smartphone. A feature rich handset that boasts Android’s latest operating system (7.0 Nougat) and Nuu Mobiles’ own Konnect global roaming hybrid eSIM technology (a virtual SIM chip that automatically switches between phone networks when travelling) this phone allows frequent travellers to automatically access the cheapest local roaming rates whilst abroad. 

Offering excellent value for money, this sub £200 handset allows X5 owners to automatically activate the built-in Konnect roaming services via a dedicated App when they arrive at a new destination. Avoiding the hassles associated with hunting down a local SIM card whilst away, or having to connect to unsecure public WiFi, this phone is ideal for businessmen and women who need to seamlessly access data for important work emails, or simply hail an Uber on arrival in over 100 countries. Perfect for making international calls too, the Konnect global roaming technology ensures that the X5 can make voice calls over WiFi without the use of apps (e.g Skype, Whatsapp). 

With space for an additional two traditional SIM cards, the X5 is also a great primary phone for people in the UK with multiple numbers as users can now carry one phone to seamlessly access calls from both lines. With additional spec that includes a 13MP rear camera, fingerprint scanning, a large 5.5 full HD screen, 32GB of in-built storage and over-the-air-updates, cost conscious users can be confident that this great value handset won’t need upgrading any time soon.

Sleek and desirable, the X5 is available in black and white, has a two-year warranty and comes with a free screen protector. Retailing at £199.99, the X5 is available for first hands-on-reviews at Mobile World Congress – stand 1E10, Hall 1. It will be available in the UK to buy in Q2 2017.
