Nokia X A110 (Normandy) is priced in Vietnam
Nokia's first Android phone, still unannounced, has appeared on the website of a online retailer in Vietnam. That is actually quite fitting considering that much of this story came out of the country. The appearance of the phone, known as the Nokia X A110, included a price. According to the listing, this handset will cost between 2.2 million to 2.5 million VND which works out to about $110 USD.

The same online retailer had the similarly spec'd Nokia Lumia 525 on the site, priced at 3.39 million VND ($160 USD). The Nokia X A110 has 512MB less RAM and 4GB less native storage than what is on the Nokia Lumia 525.

The specs of the Nokia X A110 show a 4 inch glass with resolution of 480 x 854 for a 285ppi pixel density. A dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon 200 is under the hood, with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of native storage. Those needing more memory can use the 32GB capacity microSD slot that is available on the phone. A 5MP camera graces the back of the device, which will have Android 4.4.2 installed out of the box.

The latest buzz is that the phone will launch in March, which means we could see it at MWC later this month, in Barcelona.

Yeah, it's super cheap. And if software is optimized right, thanks to Kitkat, this might not be that bad. I see succesfull product.

Kindle owners seem to do okay. On a side note, Nokia HERE trumps Google Maps any day, and I have extensively used both.

Kindles are not phones tho, and I seriously doubt that the map app is a main concern for the average user.

actually it won't matter a bit because Asha phones(similar priced ) are bought by people just to make simple calls ,sms they don't even surf web with asha phones.. and those who actually do and care about apps are smart enough to google it and sideload .apk XDA will make this Device Legen__________Dary

Better be 10m Nokia X's sold seeing the insane amount of people waiting for a Android powered Nokia phone.

This is small numbers I predict but I'm sure if Nokia made this Normandy around 50m, will be sold out.

But why get this over the similarly priced/better spec'd Moto G? If you want a cheap Android phone that is.

Moto G = no removable battery, no upgradable memory, cheap build quality

i wanna see how smooth that phone would be with that specific 512 MB Ram..i see Nokia is experimenting many things with this sweet demon!

Reasonable enough for those specs. Google did say KitKat runs smoothly on 512MB of RAM

It's running JB 4.1, not Kikkat.

The article and the image clearly states Android 4.4.2. And the last time I checked its still called KitKat.. -_-

Let's just say it's running an unknown version of Android

I'm really curious about the purpose of this phone. Is it supposed to just replace the Asha line, or does it represent the beginning of Nokia being independent from MS after the acquisition and going full Android?

7. X.E.R.O. unregistered

Exactly, how much Android of Android is in this thing?

8. xperiaDROID

Posts: 5629; Member since: Mar 08, 2013

Both of them are possible, but I think it's the new CEO who lets Nokia to make Android phones even if Nokia is acquired by Microsoft just to try whether Android is suitable for Microsoft or not, maybe we can say that Nokia is the tester? According to the a news recently, it mentioned that Nokia will make more Android phones after the Nokia X which is good news.

All fingers crossed for high-end Nokia X...

I think they are making only low end android....there is no way ms could allow...plus all hardware tweaks of nokia are with ms.... Also consider that that android version is forked and it is same as of asha ui.....that makes sense that they are replacing asha software with android

I am more exited about Nokia WP than Normandy/X ... Also,i think it's M$ behind all this Normandy/X thing.Once they get people to use WP UI with M$ features on it,they will choose to upgrade a full WP experience.That somewhat makes sense. Well...

I am from Vietnam, and I think Mai Nguyen just used rumoured info for the ad.

Samsung should feel the heat. Their trash is not ready.
