Nokia's first Android smartphone surfaces on Browsermark


Nokia’s mysterious first Android smartphone has popped up on the Browsermark benchmark, and it appears to be a mid-range device. The Nokia X, or the Nokia Normandy, as it is often referred to, scored 1885 points on the processor-intensive Browsermark test. This result puts it in the same league as mid-range Android devices like the Sony Xperia C, but interestingly, the score is slightly above the one of the higher-end Nokia Lumia 1020.

In Browsermark, the Nokia device appears under the RM-980 model name, and it is confirmed to be a Nokia-made phone running on an unspecified version of Android. The benchmark stats also reveal that for this test, it’s been running mobile Chrome.

The Nokia X, or Normandy, has previously surfaced on AnTuTu, and - if this indeed is the same device - it’s expected to feature a screen with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (same resolution used by Sony), run on Android 4.4.1 with a Snapdragon chip under the hood, and with a 5-megapixel camera.

Calm down... :) I wonder what you will say when you discover that it doesn't have the google market, apps and services.

It won't, apparently. MS won't allow this to happen since Google services are miles ahead theirs. Else, the remaining nokia fanboys will switch from lumias to nokia's android line.

Nice story but since when did you become the ambassador for the Nokia fanboys? I would go Apple before going back to that buggy MySpace os

Did you just call Android a buggy MySpace OS...? Really?

22. papss unregistered

Sure did..

Like it or not, Android is the world's most advanced mobile OS right now. That's the reason why most nokia fanboys out there want nokia go full android. Nokia would sell way more devices if they were running Android. You might be in denial, but deep inside you, you know it's true!

Just no.. I'm an individual and don't need someone to tell me what's best unlike yourself. Lemmings

Haha, right for someone who's supporting a subpar OS, it's hard to acknowledge that the other competitors are better. Perhaps, the truth is a bitter pill to swallow. :)

Android is a great OS. But it surely isn't the most advanced. A most advanced OS should have its latest version on all phones, not just a specific group (Nexus). Also, it has still got some lag even after using octa core chips and 3 GB of RAM.

It's not Google's fault that the Android manufacturers do not update their devices when a new software version is launched. Google rolls out software updates and application updates quite regularly, it's then Samsung's, LG's, HTCS, Moto's(who have been doing an awesome job as of late)etc, to roll them out to their devices. The features that Android offers alone trumps anything that WP and or iOS offer ATM. Thus making it the most advanced mobile OS period.

oops..

Cheap excuses, buddy. Most advanced OS means having more features(Android on Samsung's flagships can be used as a PC replacement for light to medium tasks), better support, better and more mature ecosystem, etc.. Where WP fails greatly compared to Android, and even iOS! All they've been doing at MS for quite a while now, are trying to play catch up, suing and bashing their competitors. And you sure have never used phones like the NOTE 3, Nexus 5 or even the mid-end, Moto X. Btw, according to your logic, which is the most advanced OS then? WP? Lumia 800, 900 and all the other WP7, never got updated to WP8. iOS? iP3GS and below are stuck on iOS6>.

Android is a great OS & very popular. However, it isn't the most advanced by any stretch.

"Nokia would sell way more devices if they were running Android." Is your brain like, 3 or 4 years slow?

Nopes, but seems like yours do..

Then don't make such assumptions without any thought.

I happen to think that Microsoft services are superior to Google's, it all depends on which eco system you are invested in.

Not really, since it's a low end. The most awaited phone of this year is the S5 imho, or may be the ip6. But personally, I'm more excited about the Oppo Find 7.

Who cares it's a low end? People can buy it as their secondary phone.

I hope this phone comes under asha extension of nokia, and so does nokia can make more of such mobiles, if nokia can provide android, i bet it will kill many players in market even if it does not support google's android, nokia always have its own replacement, such as nokia store for google play, here maps for google maps, and alot of other perks under its hood.

Nokia can't make phones for two years after the Microsoft D&S acquisition, and MS gets the Lumia and Ashas lines, as well as naming rights for ten years on the basic/feature phones, so you won't see that "replacement" as ongoing. This phone is a "swan song" if it hits market, rest assured. I'm a huge Nokia fan myself, but truth be told, I don't think you'll see another Nokia handset for quite a while if ever. They lost their asses the last five or so years, and the board and stockholders have bad tastes in their mouths. Maybe one day, who knows. It doesn't change the fact that it is disheartening.
