Presented as Nokia’s first attempt to enter into the Android smartphone market, not so long after the manufacturer has been taken over by Microsoft, this Nokia X (aka Nokia Normandy) has been in the center of our attention so many times before. But this time the story is different; if then we only had several leaks and speculations, now we can be finallytalking about an official appearance for this Nokia Android based device at MWC. To be more precise, Nokia X is about to be revealed during next Monday’s February 24 official MWC 2014 press conference, but until then let’s see more details known at this point:
Nokia’s X Design
When it comes to Nokia’s X design, we can only tell you that the Twitter-based tipster @evleaks was once again been the most helpful thanks to its leaks. We can notice from the start that we are supposed to be expecting a pretty boxy design, the handset looking almost like its Nokia Asha 503 brother. And the most recent Nokia X pictures are letting us see a green handset from several different angles, although rumor has it that it is supposed to come in a variety of different colors also including red and possibly even blue.
Technical Details and Features
Although these official announcement regarding MWC wasn’t accompanied by any other technical details, we can already anticipate some of them, based on previous speculations. We know from the start that Nokia X is supposed to be just an entry-level handset coming with a modest 4-inch display having a maximum 800 x 480 resolution, while the power is provided by a 1.2GHz dual-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory.
Other specs also include a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a 1,500mAh battery, but many if you might have a problem with the outdated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS. Anyway, as our source confirms, you won’t even be getting a pure Android experience, but one with Nokia’s app store and its own services as well, instead of the usual Google Play services support.
As you have seen from the start, we are no longer calling this handset Nokia Normandy, but Nokia X, just as a teaser image has also confirmed. This image comes in green and its arrows form an ‘X’, just as you can see by yourself, so there is no doubt that this is the company’s final name choice.
