Specifications of Nokia X
A few things about Nokia Normandy has already been leaked. Nokia is working on an Android lowend smartphone. BGR India is claiming that Nokia has started sending Nokia Normandy, aka Nokia X to Indian developers.
It has also said that Nokia is planning for campaigning this device during Indian Premier League, one of the most exciting series of India, which will be played in April. Looking at this thing makes me feel that Nokia has a huge plan for Nokia Normandy.
The site has also said the Nokia is working on its own App Store AoL (Asha on Linux). Which has already got the top 100 Android apps.
Price is expected to be $100 which is in fact best buy for the specs. Nokia Normandy will run Android 4.4 Kitkat and sports 1GHz dual core processor. It has internal storage of 4GB and 512MB of RAM.
Nokia Normandy or Nokia X is expected to be announced in Mobile World Congress.
It is going to be interesting to see the future of the phone. What will MS do? Kill it? Feel free to say your thoughts in comments or @NokiaTips.
Lately, we have seen a lot of renders of Nokia Normandy, first Android phone from Nokia.
@evleaks just leaked another picture, a real image of Nokia Normandy. Though there is nothing more than a Nokia splash screen, most probably, a boot screen, but it is first real image of the phone.
Nokia is building an Android phone, codenamed Normandy. We posted a screenshot of Nokia ‘s custom Android UI last week.
@evleaks has shared some more screenshots of Nokia’ s Android UI.
As you can see in leaked screenshot, Nokia is trying to build a custom UI resembling the look of its Asha OS and elements from Windows Phone.
It’s still unclear whether Nokia will ever release Android phones following its acquisition by Microsoft.
People seem to be excited about a long awaiting wishes of seeing a Nokia Android device. But as it is being said, Nokia is going to use this Android fork only for its low end devices, possibly by replacing Asha OS with this.
Let us know how excited are you to see an Android device from Nokia? What do you expect from it? Feel free to put your thoughts in comments or connect with us @NokiaTips.
