Nokia X (Normandy) to be released in 6 color versions, other specs apparently confirmed
Now, a tweet from @evleaks seemingly reaffirms that the handset will be called Nokia X, not Normandy. Moreover, @evleaks - known for providing reliable info - reports that the Nokia X has 6 color versions, also confirming some of its specs: 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display, dual SIM capabilities, 5MP rear camera, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 1,500 mAh battery. The processor powering the handset looks to be a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon, indeed.
All in all, it appears that the Nokia X / Normandy is a handset that will be targeted at emerging markets (as we previously assumed). Nokia may want to announce the smartphone in March, although it could also unveil it in February at MWC.

IMO this is an experiment to see if there is enough demand for Nokia android phones. They did the same thing with the lumia 800. If Nokia X succeeds and then we might see a nice android phone coming from Nokia.

This won't prove anything if it fails. It wasn't loaded with Google's version of Android (as far as we know) therefore we can't truly say Android was a fail if this tanks. Remember, Android isn't just Android.

According to the article it will have "support for Google Play, Google Now and other Google services. " Doesn't that mean that it will have "Google's version of Android?"
Or is you claim it's not stock Android?

no according to the leaks the processor is supposed to be a dual core snapdragon 200 which is a cortex a5 opposed to the cortex a15 on L520

Hope it comes with flash.

This configuration is very similar to the Galaxy S that I bought about 4 years ago.... Why Nokia, why?? do you have a death wish? Cant you even make a mid-range device to make it interesting?

With almost similar spec with the Lumia 520 except for the lower internal memory, the phone should be priced similarly or a bit higher (as a new product) but not higher than the Lumia 525. Then, this phone will be a great success and people can say good bye to all lower spec Androids.

Considering we have yet to see any low-end devices running Kit-Kat, this device might be one of the first that truly shows whether or not Project Svelte is a success.

Folks within 6 months or less Microsoft will be in charge of Nokia devices and services. I do not think this smart phone will be allowed to come into production and go on sale unless Nokia gets approval from Microsoft. This is the year Microsoft is going to put MS Office on Android and Apple mobile devices Perhaps Microsoft will first put MS office on a more advanced version of this low end Android smart phone. In any case unless Nokia puts this smart phone on the market before the deal is sealed with Microsoft. Microsoft may not allow it's production and sales on the market place. For Microsoft to sell a lot of mobile devices in the Market place and make Profit. it should sell Android devices as well as it's own Windows products. The big question is will Microsoft do this. Time will tell folks!
