Nokia X (or Nokia Normandy) photos leaked again and recently, its handset gleams in green and having marketing renders leaking it is a proof that it will really launch despite contrary reports earlier.
Nokia who has been heard to be developing an Android phone for the first time and stopped, had the public being aware. Evleaks tweeted in December that there has been so much exaggeration regarding the death of Normandy.
Will Nokia Unveil Two Devices?
Nokia X teasers do not disclose much, and images were posted on the Weibo site of Nokia. It is anticipated that the Finnish titan indicates that there may be two devices to be launched at the Barcelona event. At this time however, we only know about Nokia X, the long-rumoured Nokia Normandy as it was named earlier. Nokia X has been in the news since 2013 albeit there are other Windows Phone offerings which are supposedly due at the coming event.
Leak of Press Photos and Specs
The Nokia X alleged press photo was leaked on Monday via @evleaks and this cemented further authenticity of its name. The device was also recently seen in a listing page on a Vietnamese retailer website.
Aside from being said to be standing between the Lumia and Asha line-up, leaked specs of Nokia's Android phone include WVGA display in 4 inches, 1 GHZ Snapdragon dual-core processor, 4GB internal storage, 512MB RAM, 640x360 resolution, a 1500 mAh battery and a 5-megapixel camera. It looks like Nokia X will be priced at $100 when it launches soon.
What the Leaks Revealed
When Nokia X was seen on ITHome technology site, the image was blurred and so was the app drawer of the UI in operation, which suggested that it's a dual-SIM. There were no Nokia logos found on the device though.
It was displayed on the AnTuTu benchmark software with KitKat 4.4.1, an 854 x 480 display and a 5-megapixel camera. It showed as Nokia A110.
Thanks to its leaked photos ahead of the Mobile World Congress in February 24, the public is quite certain of its coming debut before long and everyone would see if it will really become its manufacturer's "game changer".
