It comes with 16GB of on-board flash, expandable by another 32GB through the device’s MicroSD card slot. Wi-Fi is supported through 802.11b/g/n standards and its Bluetooth ready as well. There are no details on the battery capacity or its running time but the X2 does include HDMI and USB OTG (On The Go).
