Nokia X (Normandy) to be released in 6 color versions, other specs apparently confirmed

Yesterday, Vietnam’s largest online retailer listed the unannounced Nokia Normandy on its website, mentioning that the phone would feature Android 4.4 KitKat, a dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and support for Google Play, Google Now and other Google services.

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.

If the Nokia X will hit the market soon, as all the recent rumors are leading us to believe, it should be very cheap. Nokia is selling the Lumia 520 WP handset for less than $100, and things shouldn’t be different with what seems to be its first Android-based phone. But we'll see what happens, right?

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?

I want... I want... I want... Bring it to India and whole world, the Nokia X. :) Hope it comes with flash. Leaks also said that, it would also support Google Play as per PA news as Vietnam's site displayed it.

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!
