Nokia X press image leaks out: sorts out the name of Nokia’s first Android smartphone

Nokia X press image leaks out: sorts out the name of Nokia’s first Android smartphone
The Nokia X has been leaking out extensively over the last few weeks, and the more we learned about it, the more we understood that Nokia’s first Android smartphone would be more of an Asha replacement, an affordable gadget, rather than a higher-end device that would compete with devices the ranks of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.

Now, what looks like an official press image of the Nokia X has leaked out and it comes from the web’s leaker-in-chief @evleaks. It confirms that Nokia X will indeed be the official name of the handset that we were used to referring to as ‘Nokia Normandy’ (Normandy is said to be the internal codename for the device). You can clearly see that the Nokia X will indeed be a colorful device with green being at least one of its colors.

We have earlier seen leaked information about the Nokia X saying it’d come with a 4-inch screen and the run on Android masked with an interface that is a mixture of Asha and Windows Phone’s tiles. The rest is a bit controversial. Rumors diverge on some specs like the camera that could be either a 3- or a 5-megapixel one, as well as on the Android version (some say that it’d come with KitKat that seems logical, and others have suggested it’d run on the dated Android 4.1 Jelly Bean).

At least, now, it seems we’ve settled on the name. For all the rest, we’ll update you in just a few days - the Nokia X should finally get officially unveiled there.

I don't think so... Coz this would be released without Google playstore/apps... Android without G apps is like a ship which cannot float...

Let me correct you: Android success "STARTED" with low and mid range devices, however all Android OEM's flagships are highend Android's and they are hugely successful over the past 3 years. Kindly update your outdated knowledge...

Android dumb phones? Wth? And you're saying the G2, HTC One and Moto X didn't sell well? They aren't doing Samsung numbers, but it takes time to catch up. High end Androids are good sellers in the US and EU. China and the 3rd world are a lot more price conscious, and they also have a lot more to chose from in the budget category. But consider this: the phones that are value sellers in China are better than anything anywhere just a few years ago. It just doesn't make sense to spend several times the money for ten percent better performance in most places.

No those phones did not sell well. They didn't even match half the numbers Samsung was putting out. Im not saying they were flops or bad phones but they did not sell well and that is a fact. And as far as catching up, those manufacturers you mentioned have been losing market share for well over a year now.

Ahhh, actually they did sell well. Immolate is exactly right. Samsung is just putting up much beret numbers than the others. The problem with most of the other Android OEMs is they don't seem to know how to market or get the word out about their devices. LG is putting out some killer devices but you never see am LG commercial. It not Google or Android's fault these guys aren't succeeding, it's their own.

Revenge of the WP fan boy. LOL!

I guess that's why most of Android's OEMs are faring badly, except for Samsung. Realistically, most of these OEMs are on the brink of failure (read: HTC, and others) because of Samsung's total domination of the OS, which is why those OEMs (read: Sony, and others) are resorting to Windows Phone.

Which are a dead end for wp phone as well because most people I know avoid wp because Microsoft is a brand that most of their customer loft. I am quite surprise there wp fan at all. Well 4% is within accept range of error. LOL!

Of course, trolling as always. You missed my point by the way. 1. Trolling makes you look stupid. 2. Read my previous post. 3. Read my previous post.

The other manufacturers are resorting to WP? To date, HTC has nothing in the rumor mill. Nor does LG. OPPO, Huawai has nothing to be found. Motorola? Zippo. I think I've heard about something from Sony and Samsung. And this article is about Nokia, who is the WP market, is releasing an Android phone.

37. Dastrix unregistered

Oh, they will resort to WP at that rate. Trust me! Add Lenovo as well! :)

How is magazine ux different from Metro / modern UI ??

Magazine UX is a step down. This is a step above.

It doesn't look half bad. But honestly, what android phone that's been skinned to the point of no return ever does well? None of them. (Cough HTC First cough)

Normandy was the point of insertion for the Allied forces against the Axis. From there, they slowly regained territory, which was invaded by the Axis, and eventually liberated and freed Europe.

Allied forces (Android) free Europe (Nokia) from Axis (Microsoft). Place (device) is Normandy.

Stephen Elop is currently the Executive Vice President, Devices & Services at Nokia he stepped down from being CEO when Microsoft bought Nokia Devices and Services division. He will move to Microsoft and become the Vice President of Microsoft's Devices & Services business unit overlooking devices like Surface, Xbox, Lumia Windows Phone etc once the deal is completed. This device is a niche device most likely under current CEO Risto Siilasmaa guidance. Lumias are the future in my opinion and right so, not a WP/Android looking device.
